TrekRanks Episode 78: Top 5 Episodes Where the Ship Is a Character

Originally released on March 12, 2020

Listen to the show :

The ship is always there. Sometimes in the background and sometimes in the foreground. On this week's TrekRanks we break down our Top 5 Episodes Where the Ship Is a Character (and by "ship," of course, we mean anything: a hero ship, a one-off ship, a space station, a shuttle - whatever fits your Prime Directive). Host Jim Moorhouse and guests Patrick Escudero and Melanie go in a bunch of directions to narrow down their lists and dive into Trek lore. This topic is a fun one!

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 we quickly breakdown the various ways to define a ship, and then we move into our Prime Directive, where everyone defines how they narrowed down their selections and made their final picks.

Jim, Patrick and Melanie 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 pretty broad for this topic. Literally everything is on the table this week..

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 73 and a brilliant voicemail from listener Carl Wonders on his Top 5 Crossover Moments (with a twist!).

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 Episodes Where the Ship Is a Character.
