TrekRanks Episode 36: Trek Mount Rushmore

Originally released on August 17, 2018

Listen to the show :

In a live recording from the official Star Trek Las Vegas Convention, our TrekRanks Panel drops some serious Trek knowledge with scores of deep chisel picks on their own Trek Mount Rushmore (or Mt. Selaya, if you prefer)! The episode is highlighted by deep cut picks, surprise interruptions, special guests and even a "Five Words and a Hashtag Summary" from a legendary Trek actor!

The show kicks off with a Level One Diagnostic that explains the parameters of our Trek Mount Rushmore picks: no Gene Roddenberry (since he is basically the mountain, we open up that spot for someone else to receive recognition), creatives only (so now on-screen actors) and five picks for everyone (since in the 23rd century a fifth face has been added to Mt. Rushmore).

In the Prime Directive section of the show everyone runs through exactly how they defined their picks and made the hard choices. And then in The Order of Things all of the picks are revealed with their own individual "Five Words and a Hashtag" summary. Midway through recording "The Order of Things," a special guest from the world of Star Trek conventions shows up to join in on the fun and offer his expert commentary on the picks.

After going through a few Secondary Systems picks and then a Regeneration Cycle to run through some statistics, the episode turns its attention to yet another Temporal Causality Loop. This week we listen to a voicemail breaking down a memorable list of Top 5 Kira Nerys Episodes.

As always, if you have your own lists or picks you want to share with us, please make sure to hail us here on our website by leaving a voicemail and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your personal Trek Mount Rushmore. Your comments might be used via a Temporal Causality Loop in an upcoming episode.
