This week we are packing up our runabout and powering up the impulse engines to discuss our Top 5 Road Trips in Star Trek. So whether you are departing Sector 001 in a shuttlecraft or hiking through the Vulcan Forge with a friend, there are an infinite number of ways to approach this fun topic. Host Jim Moorhouse and guests Debbie Moltisanti and Jamie McGregor discover more than a few short cuts on their trip deep into the Trek archive.
The final picks from our panel include several classics and quite a few deep cut selections that are sure to surprise. This week's show begins with our Diagnostic Cycle as our guests all pick their favorite non-Trek road trips in pop culture history (and even in their personal lives). We then move into our Prime Directive, where each of our guests defines how they narrowed down their selections and made their final picks.
Jim, Debbie and Jamie then break down their final picks in The Order of Things by revealing their "Five Words and a Hashtag Summaries." Based on the Prime Directive from each host, the canvas of selection was a little narrower than you might expect, and you'll find out why as the picks are slowly revealed.
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 flashback to Episode 53 and our Top 5 Neelix Episodes.
