Episode 91: We've Seen Star Trek Beyond and It's Good!

Good news, everyone -- we’re reviewing Star Trek Beyond this week in a super-sized episode!

What did we think? We liked it! One of us more than the other -- listen to find out who. And, guys? While the first part of the podcast is spoiler free, we eventually go pon farr and pon deep into SPOILER TERRITORY (don’t worry; we warn you before we do). Seriously, don’t listen to that part before you see the movie -- because the best way to enjoy it is to go in as cold as possible.

STAR TREK BEYOND

And we go Beyond (I regret nothing) to bury another Red Shirt this week -- one who's head is 2/3 glove box. (You'll get that after you see the movie.)

So get comfy in your Kelvin pods, plug in and listen now to Transporter Room 3!

Episode 90: How Gul Dukat Got His Groove Back

We're back. With a new episode... talking about an old episode. BRAAAAM!

As promised, the topic is Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. And the episode, the scary-underrated "Indiscretion," is one that you've (probably) never seen. If you haven't then you need to fix that, because it's an all-timer for Kira and Dukat.

Our deep dive into that DS9 episode raises some interesting questions. Like, is Dukat's dark view of the Bajor Occupation the right one?

We’ve also got an update on that big Axanar/fan-film lawsuit that J.J. Abrams said was over (it isn't) and a Red Shirt from Kira's neck of the woods. So grab a bottle of kanar, put on your Beats headphones and listen now to TR3!

Episode 89: Karl Urban Reveals His Favorite Star Trek Movie and Episodes

Dammit, Jim -- he's a doctor, not a podcast guest! Karl Urban beams in to Transporter Room 3 for a chat about Star Trek Beyond, his favorite TOS episodes, and why he thinks The Motion Picture is the best Trek movie!

Yep, this is the second part of our Star Trek Beyond Fan Event-palooza. Last episode we broke down (like a degraded transporter pattern) all the details on the footage shown at that event, and now we talk to Doctor “Bones” McCoy himself about those scenes and more. Do you need a convincing argument for why Star Trek: The Motion Picture is way better than most people give it credit for? Then listen to what Urban has to say…

And of course we also pay tribute to another Red Shirt of the Week -- a whole bunch of them, actually. These guys may not have been Starfleet, but they sure loved them some ketracel-white…
