Episode 31: A Tale of Two Star Trek II's

We know. It's been awhile. Again. Blame the guy on transporter duty who kept us in the pattern buffer for the last forever weeks.

Transporter Room 3, Episode 31


But we're back, along with a discussion of two Star Trek II's: Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

We recap J.J. Abrams' plans to release the first nine minutes of Into Darkness in IMAX and the new trailer on December 14 -- two things we want in our eyes right now. Then we sing the praises of one of the best things to ever happen to nerdkind: KHAAAAAAAAAAN!! *coughs* Excuse me, Wrath of Khan.

We sing the Trek sequel's praises, stopping short at actually singing a power ballad in its honor. (It's hard to find lyrics that rhyme with "Montalban's man cleavage.")

One of Deep Space Nine's finest episodes, "Duet," also gets a shout-out in our Listener Mail segment, and we wrap things up with a Red Shirt of the Week massacre! Oh, the humanity!!

So cue up "Amazing Grace" on sad bag pipes and strap yourselves into your beanbag chairs -- Transporter Room 3 starts right now!
