Episode 76: Star Trek: Voyager: Why You Need to Watch "Relativity"

After a wee bout of temporal aphasia, Transporter Room 3 is back -- and this time, we bring gifts!

This week, we announce the winner of Diamond Select's very cool USS Excelsior. Listen to find out if you won, but here’s a hint: Your favorite ship is a tie between the Enterprise-A and the Defiant!

And Star Trek loves time travel, and Voyager's Season 5 episode "Relativity" is one of Trek's most entertaining trips through time ever. It's got Seven, a dry-docked Voyager and (literal) time bombs. Why is this episode so good? Listen and found out.

"Relativity" also gives us our Red Shirt of the Week -- who suffers from a case of one too many quantum leaps.

Relativity

So put on your Star-Lord headphones, watch out for temporal psychosis and listen to the latest episode of TR3!

Episode 75: How to Bring Star Trek Back to TV

And just like that, Transporter Room 3 hits a milestone -- our 75th episode! That means we’re just four shows away from logging more episodes than The Original Series. Herbert!

Actually, not Herbert. Because we did things in style for this special episode, starting with a visit from our friend and Star Trek guru Jordan Hoffman. Renowned throughout the quadrant for his Trek knowledge -- but mostly his ability to sling puns -- Jordan regales us with tales from the Trek convention circuit and that time he heckled J.J. Abrams…

not-herbert

But our main focus this week is a discussion of how Star Trek could, should and might return to TV. Which cast would feature in a new show? Would it be the Abramsverse or the old continuity? Is Trek’s best chance at being reborn on TV to actually bypass traditional broadcast and cable and go the Netflix route? We dive deep on this one!

And of course we have a Red Shirt of the Week, and a very unconventional one at that for this doomed crewman somehow lived again. Plus, we have a very special giveaway for our listeners: a chance to win the NX-2000 Excelsior from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock from Diamond Select Toys. This 18-inch long piece features button-activated lights and all-new sound effects and dialogue taken from the film, including lines by the ship's douchey Captain Styles!

nx-2000

Click over to DiamondSelectToys.com to purchase the Excelsior or any of the other ships coming from Diamond this year, including a revamped Enterprise-A, a re-issue of the NX-01 from Enterprise and a TOS Romulan Bird of Prey. They also have the Wrath of Khan Enterprise, the Battle-Damaged Enterprise-B, the Nemesis Enterprise-E, the “All Good Things” Enterprise-D and regular and cloaking Klingon Bird of Preys. But don’t forget to listen to the podcast for your chance to win the NX-2000.

Episode 72: Revisiting Deep Space Nine’s Great Link

Remember that time the Founders were killing Odo softly with their song?

Transporter Room 3, Episode 72

Subscribe:

"Broken Link" is as small in scale as you can get with a season finale, but it delivers big emotional punches that rival its more CG-battle friendly peers.

Scott and Phil break down the Odo-heavy Season 4 finale, a sequel of sorts to another Odo-centric ep, Season 3's "The Adversary," and explain why Odo slowly dying makes for one of DS9's best and most underrated hours.

And for one lucky listener, we answer the age-old question: "Should I watch Voyager, or skip straight to Enterprise?"

Also, a resident of the Gamma Quadrant gets fitted for a torpedo coffin as this week's Red Shirt, and Phil gets serious about his "eating disorder."

So join the Great Link and listen now!

And recently, Simon Pegg was brought on to help write a story that, if the rumors are true, could get an assist in the villain department from Bryan Cranston. We take a look at the "end-runaround" that is the threequel’s development, telling you what's what and if you should set your phasers to "worry."
