Episode 15: Spock's Boobs

Welcome to Transporter Room 3, the only corner of the Internet galaxy where chestal-region body art crosses with discussions of all things Star Trek.

Or subscribe:

This week's NSFW and angel-dust fueled episode blames all sorts of things we can't believe we said aloud on our Mirror Universe versions. That's right, we talk about The Original Series episode "Mirror, Mirror." What sparked this week's episode topic, you ask? A woman's ode to Spock by way of boob tattoos. (Tit-toos? *cymbal crash, crickets...*)

Oh and we interrupt our podcast with a breaking nerd news story -- our first time ever, kids! Doctor Who and Star Trek: TNG will finally get that comic book crossover that no one really asked for. So we'll weigh in on that existing, as well as news about Hasbro's new Star Trek 2 toys ("expensive and shitty"?). And of course, we strap on our black arm bands once again for another fallen Red Shirt of the Week.

So listen to TR3, and learn why our intellectual banter was so stimulating that Scott's mom had to stop listening! But don't YOU stop listening. Oh no, not you. Yeah you, the guy at his computer, listening with the 32" Vizio on in the background. Yes. YOU. You're about to get Tantalus Field'd if you don't "Like" us on Facebook and love us with star ratings on iTunes. Just kidding about the Tantalus Field thing. Or am I?!

We regret nothing.

Episode 14: Biggest Dick Moves By Star Trek's Best Captains

After getting detoured a bit last week with a trip to cheap inky blue clouds... ahem, The Great Barrier, TR3 is back on course with Episode 14. This installment is jam-packed with so much action and verbal pyrotechnics, it makes "Best of Both Worlds" look like "Angel One"!

Or subscribe:

As promised, we put on witty bastard dress uniforms and take to task the biggest Dick Moves by Starfleet's Greatest Captains. What constitutes a "dick" move you ask? Well, remember that time Kirk took command of Enterprise away from Will Decker just because Jimbo no likey his desk job? Yeah, that. And thanks to our listeners for dropping a few suggestions our way. Look for your personalized food cubes in the mail...

Also? Over the last two weeks, Trek's been blowing up in the news cycle. You had Captain Sisko getting a DUI (Garak was totally his first phone call, amirites?!) and some poor fan's poorly-informed decision to convert his apartment into the USS Voyager putting him on a direct course for (*sad trombone*) Divorce Court! So we'll be doing the talking thing about that. Also also, Star Trek: The Next Generation came out on Blu-ray and entered the 21st Century -- but just the tip! Is it any good? Does a sweaty Worf hold up in HD? Scotty Collura tells all inside!! (Click here to read his even sexier TNG Blu-ray review!)

So snap on your VISORS, give the conn to anyone but Troi and listen to Episode 14 of Transporter Room 3!!

 Don't forget to subscribe to our RSS feed (click the icon), e-mail us at TransporterRoom3 at gmail dot com, and give us a hug on iTunes and rate us! And we love your Facebook "Likes." More than oxygen. But not as much as Cheetos. So give us a bit of each. Seriously, we haven't eaten in days. We've spent all our allowance money on converting our double-wide into that temple from "Masks." I. Know. It's so embarrassing, not even sweet, sweet Death will come for us. So help us Chester Cheetah-ians. You're our only hope... Well, that and Twitter. Find us at:
