Another year, another "timely" episode of Transporter Room 3.

Transporter Room 3, Episode 85


After celebrating the holidays (Risa has the best Airbnb's), Scott and Phil return with a look at everyone's new favorite movie -- Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Specifically, how -- despite how fun the film is -- J.J. Abrams' best Star Wars movie is actually one starring Captain Kirk and Keenser.

How? Why? Listen now to find out.


Plus, we also check in on some recent Trek news -- New York City is getting a convention! -- and of course we all swing by The Original Series for another Red Shirt of the Week.

So put down your crossguard lightsabers and turn up the latest edition of TR3!
