Pretty safe to say that the second season of Star Trek: Discovery most definitely went where no Trek had gone before. And on this week's TrekRanks Podcast we break down our Top 5 Discovery Season 2 Moments in five distinct categories: production design, performer, Dabo round wildcard, character and episode! TrekRanks regulars Alex Perry and Heather Kirby join host Jim Moorhouse to dissect the amazing developments in a unique season of Trek that broke new ground and dove deep into established Trek lore.
The show opens with a Level One Diagnostic breaking down the five distinct categories used to analyze Discovery's sophomore season. In order, this week's panelists reveal their picks in the following categories: Production Design, Performer, Dabo Round Wildcard, Character and Episode! While production design, character and episode are pretty clear categories, the Round 4 topic of Top Performer is focused on the actor who connected with Trek both on and off the screen. And the Round 3 Wildcard Pick is basically the Dabo Round!
After a quick Prime Directive to detail how each host approached their lists, the crew jumps in to The Order of Things to reveal their picks (all featuring the usual "Five Word Summary and a Hashtag" summary. And as we always do, we pick one episode that best highlights our final selections.
After going through a few Secondary Systems picks and a Regeneration Cycle to recap our choices, the episode winds down with a jump into a Temporal Causality Loop flashing back to Episode 48 and our Top 5 Chill-Inducing Moments.
