Episode 94: This Is How You Celebrate Star Trek's 50th Anniversary

726 episodes. 13 movies. 4,579,829 red shirts.

Star Trek has given us so much in 50 years… including Transporter Room 3, so we're celebrating it old school. Yep, we're slingshotting 'round the sun with a discussion of "The Man Trap," the first Trek episode to ever air half a century ago today. Salt vampires never get old (unlike Doctor McCoy’s ex-girlfriend).

We also have a special guest -- David Gerrold, the writer of the classic episode "The Trouble with Tribbles." Gerrold also worked on the Next Generation’s first season, and he has some stories to tell…

But wait! We also have a preview of Titan’s great new book, Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Years, which features a load of cool works based on our favorite sci-fi classic. We’re also giving away a few copies of 50 Artists 50 Years, so be sure to listen for your chance to win.

And as if you had to ask -- yes, we have a Red Shirt. Plural. The most we've ever had -- we're making Trek history too!

So put on your dress uniforms, watch out for hungry Tribbles, and listen to the latest ep of Transporter Room 3!
