Episode 147: How to Design an Enterprise (or Three)

Welcome to the season finale of Transporter Room 3, as we close out 2018 the only way we know how -- by worshipping at the altar of Star Trek!

In this special bonus episode, Phil and Scott dive into the reader mailbag to answer a ton of questions from you guys -- no question is too dumb (or smart) for us to tackle, or at least fake our way through!


And then very special guest John Eaves beams in for a lengthy chat about his work as a concept artist and model maker on the many different iterations of Star Trek he’s been involved with over the years. Listen, this guy has designed three Enterprises (and counting)! His new book Star Trek: The Art of John Eaves is out now, which gave us the perfect opportunity to pick his brain about Discovery, the Enterprise-E, tricking Rick Berman back in the day, and so much more.

And then, of course, we close out on a very special Red Shirt. Listen to find out who this fallen Enterprise-C officer is… Hey, you never know…

Episode 146: The One with Saru, Spock and the Borg

It's been awhile, and we’ve got A LOT to talk about.

This week we snapshot our reactions to the newest Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 trailer (why is Spock writing crazy things on the floor?!), review the latest Short Trek, "The Brightest Star" -- AKA The One All About Saru -- and, if you're looking for a last-minute holiday gift, we discuss the Discovery Season 1 Blu-ray.


As always, another Red Shirt visits us from the Final Frontier -- this one, though, hails from a time before the Final Frontier was even really a thing (hint!). So put on your black Starfleet badges, pour a glass of Aunt Adele's hot milk toddy recipe and listen now to the newest ep of TR3!
