Episode 4: Sex, Holodeck Style!

Welcome back to Transporter Room 3, our Star Trek-only podcast where we virtually guarantee that our progeny and our progeny's progeny will get beaten up by whatever their generation's equivalent of a jock is! (A parrises squares player?)

TR3 features Trek fanatics (and IGN editors) Scott Collura and Phil Pirrello talking all things Star Trek each week. Get down with the Psi 2000 sickness!

This week, we set our phasers to "pervy" as we answer listener mailbag about whether or not Starfleet frowned upon banging pixels and polygons on the holodeck. And then, after taking a sonic shower, we turn our attention to a healthy discussion of DS9's "Things Past," Garak's racism and Twitter's hilarious loglines for episodes of TNG's Season 8. Plus, Trek's best (worst?) Halloween episodes and Red Shirt of the Week -- this week's poor bastard put on the yellow tunic and still got screwed. The Red Shirt is like the Final Destination of uniforms…

Riker would hit that.

Episode 3: Why Spock Kicks Ass

Welcome to the latest installment of Transporter Room 3, our new Star Trek-only podcast. TR3 features Trek fanatics (and IGN editors) Scott Collura and Phil Pirrello worshipping weekly at the altar of Gene Roddenberry's creation.

This week we examine the recent Star Trek 2 news where Spock 2.0 himself, Zachary Quinto, revealed that he's training for a big action scene in the new film. We also geek-out over one of our all-time favorite episodes of Deep Space Nine, while of course touching upon all kinds of other obscure tidbits -- from the failings of certain Starfleet officers to more nostalgia for Trek toys of our past to Major Kira's hairstyles. Hey, nobody said this wasn't going to be nerdy!


Perhaps most importantly, we now have an RSS feed. So click the icon below and make sure you subscribe! We're also on iTunes now, so be sure to give us a good rating over there too… We need the support if we're going to keep this podcast going!

Episode 2: How Captain Picard Lost His Groove

And we're back for the second episode of Transporter Room 3, our new Star Trek-only podcast. TR3 features Trek fanatics (and IGN editors) Scott Collura and Phil Pirrello talking everything and anything about Gene Roddenberry's undying franchise.

In this installment, things get embarrassing, as you might expect, as we talk about our most embarrassing moments as Trek fans. The conversation also veers into Star Trek: Nemesis territory and the weirdness that is that movie. Also, we have our first reader mailbag!

Episode 1: Star Trek Will Save Your Life

And so will listening to Transporter Room 3, our brand new Star Trek-only podcast!

Movies, TV, toys, creepy cosplay -- if it's about a starship, a Vulcan or a Borg Babe, your fearless Trek fanatics (and IGN editors) Scott Collura and Phil Pirrello are ready to talk about it in this (hopefully) regular series.

Be warned, however: This podcast is not for the weak of heart or anyone who is afraid of seriously obsessive geek-out sessions. At any moment, Collura might dovetail into a 15-minute dissertation on the dangers of being related to Worf. Or Phil will guarantee himself a future of loneliness because of his intensive knowledge of Voyager!


But! If you know the difference between Matt Decker and Will Decker, if the prospect of an M-5 multitronic unit makes you feel like Captain Dunsel, if you agreed that Picard should've blown up the damned ship… well, then you're in the right place.

In this debut episode of Transporter Room 3, we talk about the new William Shatner documentary The Captains as well as the recent announcement that Star Trek: The Next Generation is coming to Blu-ray. Plus, we ponder that age-old question: Which Riker do you prefer -- transporter accident Tom Riker or bushy-bearded alternate universe "The Borg are everywhere!" Riker?!
