Episode 106: Why Star Trek's Version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers Doesn't Suck

Wesley's back, and he's brought the scariest/lamest game ever.

Transporter Room 3, Episode 106


This week, we revisit "The Game" -- which is basically a public service announcement for why Riker should never, ever be allowed to visit Risa. Ever. But man, Ashley Judd’s Robin Lefler makes her second (and last onscreen) appearance, and along the way she gets a million sweaty nerd hearts a’fluttering!


We also have Discovery casting/re-casting news, reader mail and drones of Red Shirts -- all victims of The Hugh-ening.

So sit back, relax, put some cones in the funnel and listen now to the new ep of TR3!

  1. Love the podcast guys, been listening for years. Please keep it up.

    As far as another red shirt....

    Well this guy aint crew but how about the guy who gets vaporized by Capt. Clark Terrel on the Regula 1 asteroid in Wrath of Kahn. David goes to make a move on the bug-infested capt and is saved by Saavik. but the capt ends up melting Davids asteroid buddy instead.

    i cant remember if you mentioned this guy already somewhere in the deep past but that is a great melt.

    thanks guys!

  2. Thanks Rory! That is a great Red Shirt suggestion. Definitely gonna get to him. Thanks!
