Listen to the show :

Our "Underrated Series" continues as we dive into the Top 5 DS9 Underrated by celebrating the unheralded elements of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Of course, this great series is anything but underrated, but that doesn't mean there aren't segments of it that haven't received their due. As always, we break this topic down in five distinct categories: production design, performer, Dabo wildcard round, character and episode! Host Jim Moorhouse is joined by guests Carlos Miranda and Lee Hutchison to get into the nitty-gritty of some of the shows most underrated moments.

The show opens with a Level One Diagnostic breaking down the five distinct categories used to categorize our DS9 Underrated selections. In order, this week's panelists reveal their picks in the following categories: Production Design, Performer, Dabo Wildcard Pick, Character and Episode!

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 Words and a Hashtag" summary).

After going through a few Secondary Systems picks and a Regeneration Cycle breakdown to run through some statistics, the episode concludes with a visit into a Temporal Causality Loop as we flashback to Episode 60 and a great voicemail detailing a lucky listeners Top 5 Scenes on Location!

As always, if you have your own lists or picks you want to share with us, please make sure to hail us at 609-512-LLAP (5527) and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your Top 5 DS9 Underrated. Your comments might be used via a Temporal Causality Loop in an upcoming episode.
