Did You Know?


The instrument that Tucker uses to scan the systems of the shuttlepod is a RayTek MiniTemp infrared thermometer, slightly modified. See more »


After Tucker and Reed turn down the thermostat so as to extend the amount of time they will have oxygen, their breath is visible because of the cold, but the special effects are inconsistent. The temperature doesn't fluctuate, so their breath should be visible as long as the temperature is down, yet their breath is only pictured occasionally. See more »


Lt. Reed: I lost nearly everyone I cared about on that ship. Those girls I talked about - Rochelle, Deborah, Caitlin - none of them worked out, because I could... never get very close to them. Never got very close to my family either, for that matter. Not that it's any business of yours. But with the crew of the Enterprise it was different. I was really starting to feel... comfortable with them. And now the only one that's left thinks I'm the bloody Angel of Death.

Just say no....
21 March 2015 | by MartinHaferSee 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.
