TrekRanks Episode 50: Top 5 Ships, Part 1

Originally released on February 28, 2019

Listen to the show :

To celebrate our 50th episode we tackle two popular topics in a special two-part episode of TrekRanks! Part 1 is our Top 5 Ships and Part 2 is our Top 5 'ships! Yep. It's your favorite space-faring vessels and your favorite "will they or won't they" relationships! It's a lot to cover, which is why we've broken it into two different episodes and brought in the talented Charlynn Schmiedt and Bill Mann to join host Jim Moorhouse in an epic analysis.

With a topic like Top 5 Ships in Part 1, the canvas is so vast the Prime Directive this week will be critical in seeing how each panelist breaks down their list. Do they go broad or try and narrow down their lists with some important qualifiers?

Following the Prime Directive, Jim, Charlynn and Bill announce their final picks in The Order of Things by revealing their "Five Word Summaries and a Hashtag" and an episode that they think helps showcase that particular vessel. Based on the Prime Directive from each host, there are many different ways to approach this topic and the picks this week are amazingly diverse, with every incarnation of Trek being represented in their selectins.

Following The Order of Things the picks get even more in depth when the crew calls up their Secondary Systems selections to make sure no ships are left behind.

After a quick recap of all the picks in the Regeneration Cycle, the episode concludes with a visit into a Temporal Causality Loop as we announce our 50 Episodes of TrekRanks Sweepstakes. The only way to enter is to listen to Episode 49, 50 or 51 of TrekRanks, so what are you waiting for!

As always, make sure to hail us at 609-512-LLAP (5527) and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your Top 5 Ships (or 'ships). Your comments might be used
