TrekRanks Episode 80: Top 5 Picard Season 1 Moments

Originally released on April 09, 2020

Listen to the show :

Captain Jean-Luc Picard returned in glorious and unexpected ways for the first season of Star Trek: Picard, the seventh live-action series in Star Trek history. And we break it all down on Episode 80 of TrekRanks with our Top 5 Picard Season 1 Moments! Host Jim Moorhouse is joined by an expert panel from across Sector 001 with Alex Perry, Brooke Horton and Daniel Martin. From the woods of Viveen to deep inside the Artifact, we cover the journey of La Sirena and Picard's new ragtag crew!

The show opens with a Level One Diagnostic breaking down the five distinct categories used to analyze Picard's first 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 74 and our Top 5 Picard Episodes (of course!).

If you have your own picks, 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 Picard Season 1 Moments. Your comments might be used via a Temporal Causality Loop in an upcoming episode.
