Episode 8: Starfleet's Biggest Douchebags

The Transporter Room 3 podcast returns from a wee bout of Thanksgiving shore leave! Hosts and surprisingly non-virgins Scott Collura and Phil Pirrello discuss the filibuster-worthy topic of 3D or not 3D. (And yes, we do so while spinning around in our command chairs, General Chang-style!)

But the main event -- Starfleet's Biggest Douchebags -- bumps our usual discussion of a Trek episode in favor of verbally kick-punching the Federation's impressive D-Bag contingent. Assbutts like Star Trek III's mini-cane-carrying Captain Styles, TNG's Data-dissecting Cmdr. Maddox and Voyager's crazy Captain Ransom get served like food cubes in the Enterprise's mess hall. Also, we reunion tour with another fallen Red Shirt. And we debut our new podcast intro, made by one of our listeners!

(And yes, we know we're missing any talk about that latest Khan news, or the casting of Lt. McCleavage Alice Eve, but we just seem to have the bad luck of recording right before news breaks. We'll try harder next week!)

So puff on the inhalers, Mom-proof the bedroom door and crank your Zunes up to, well, however loud a Zune can get. Episode 8 of TR3 is guaranteed to make you nerdsplode.
