Did You Know?


This episode came about when the production started to run low on budget. In order to cut costs, they were forced to do an episode that would be almost completely situated in one location and focused on the interaction between two characters. However, these limitations worked to a lot of creative advantage, and 'Shuttlepod One' became one of the most popular episodes among cast and crew. See more »

Just say no....
21 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

So far in the series, "Shuttlepod One" is by far the weakest episode. It has the barest of plots, is plodding and makes you really hate one of the characters.

Malcolm and Trip are off on some mission using a shuttle. When they return to rendezvous with Enterprise, it appears as if the ship was destroyed. Ironically, the same happens with Enterprise--they think the shuttle was lost. So, the two officers hang out in the shuttle and wait and hope SOMEONE comes to rescue them. During this time, Malcolm is insufferable and Trip wants to kill them (as do the viewers) and eventually they are rescued and that is that.

By the way, in addition to being a crappy and dull episode, Trip says that when people die, their hair and nails continue to grow. This is a myth...and the writer should have known this.
