The Incoming Transmission title card is a feature of the live Gatorbox stream. It runs for approximately 5-15 minutes before the start of every show in order to allow viewers to find their way to the channel and not miss the beginning of the stream. The title card was devised in 2013 as a better way to buy time as opposed to Draco opening toys and trading cards, a part of the stream which developed a fanbase of its own and later became GatorUNbox. Many iterations of the Incoming Transmission card have been used throughout the years though their usual style involves samples of early CGI, television test patterns, Japanese animation, and other clips in a video remix style.

The title cards were directly inspired by the intro/outro "WAITING" bumpers from Space Ghost: Coast to Coast.
