TrekRanks is celebrating IDIC all month long with a series of Pride-themed topics, beginning with our Top 5 Hottest Characters, Part 1. Our LGBTQIAP+ panelists, regardless of their orientation, will kick off Part 1 by each rattling off their Top 5 Hottest Characters, beginning with the men.
What you find personally "hot" is very subjective, so this week's show jumps straight into our Prime Directive, where we learn that our lists are likely to include all different kinds of Trek favorites from our host Jim Moorhouse and guests Andi from Women at Warp and Matt Hansen.
In The Order of Things all the picks are revealed along with everyone's "Five Word Summary and Hashtag" for each of their Top 5 Hottest Men Characters. After revealing a few extra picks via the show's Secondary Systems, a breakdown of the picks in the Regeneration Cycle revealed some fun statistics about which shows and types of characters were best represented.
The episode then jumps back in time via a Temporal Causality Loop to go through the amazing feedback from our Top 5 Trek Divas episode. If you're a fan of deep cut picks, this week's Causality Loop is for you.
