Episode 81: Exploring the Autobiography of James T. Kirk

In this week’s episode of TR3, we delve into the story of one of the most important fictional characters in the history of humankind -- Captain Kirk!

Transporter Room 3, Episode 81


With his new book The Autobiography of James T. Kirk set to be released next week, author David A. Goodman beams in to talk about how he filled in the blanks in the Starfleet legend’s life story while also connecting the dots to the many adventures we’ve seen Kirk have onscreen. Along the way, David also recounts his time writing the Futurama episode “Where No Fan Has Gone Before” which introduced The Original Series crew to the Planet Express gang in classic (and hilarious) fashion.


David also offers up his favorite doomed Starfleet patsy for our Red Shirt of the Week, the needlessly energetic dingbat Lieutenant Mallory from the episode “The Apple.”

And be sure to listen for our giveaway this week for your chance to win a copy of The Autobiography of James T. Kirk!
