Episode 21: Why the USS Enterprise Kicks Ass

The USS Enterprise. It's the best thing to ever happen to space combat. Given her captains' tendencies to put her between them and a variety of not-effing-around threats, she has to be.


For Episode 21 of Transporter Room 3, we honor the best ship in the fleet by taking a very nerdtacular look at her finest space battles. From The Original Series to the films, from Romulans to products of late-20th century genetic engineering, Kirk's one true love never met an ass she couldn't kick, phaser or quantum torpedo. We list our favorites. When you're done here, go over to our Facebook page to list yours.

News-wise, apparently all you need to score a key role in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek is an iPhone audition and a name ending in "-enedict Cumberbatch." And yes, Bryans Fuller and Singer are still verbally panhandling for a new Trek TV series. Meanwhile, one of the few good things to come out of Star Trek: Nemesis gives us our weekly dose of Red Shirt and we boast without shame about how awesome it is to have seen Joss Whedon's The Avengers early.


So reset your prefix codes and listen to Episode 21, right now!
