Episode 138: How Does The Cage Match Up With Star Trek Discovery?

It's finally here -- Transporter Room 3's take on "The Cage"!

Transporter Room 3, Episode 138


Star Trek's first pilot is like a club Stefon would recommend. It has everything: Female yeomans, phaser canons, throbbing telepaths, green alien slave girls, dated sexism -- EVERYTHING. So how well does Captain Pike's first mission hold up? And how well does it jive with Discovery, the show it shares a timeline with? Listen and find out.

We also do some reader mailbag, where we spend a lot of time debating the science of the Nexus -- a fictional thing. Plus, get ready for three Red Shirts straight outta Rigel VII.

So stop touching those vibrating alien plants, put on your phaser canon goggles and listen now to TR3!
