TrekRanks Episode 83: Top 5 Scenes in Sickbay

Originally released on May 14, 2020

Listen to the show :

Please state the nature of the medical emergency. The heart and soul of many a Star Trek episode through the years has taken place in sickbay, and on this week's episode of TrekRanks we return to our Scenes in Trek series with our Top 5 Scenes in Sickbay. Whether it's an old school sickbay or the DS9 infirmary or a triage situation somewhere, everything is in place for our panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Katharine Robinson and Sam Nelson.

We skip the Diagnostic Cycle this week to jump straight into our usual Prime Directive, where our panel sorts through exactly how they narrowed down their lists. Then in The Order of Things everyone reveals their "Five Word Summary and a Hashtag" for each of their Top 5 Scenes in Sickbay and the episode in which it appeared.

As always with our Scenes in Trek series, the Secondary Systems selections are detailed and abundant, and we do our best to leave no hypospray un-injected. This is a deep cut topic to say the least. After a recap of everyone's picks in the Regeneration Cycle, Jim briefly reviews some of the interesting statistical anomalies that emerged from all the great selections.

The episode concludes with a visit into a Temporal Causality Loop as we flashback to lists from two great episodes of Trekranks with a visit to Episode 70 (Top 5 Scenes in a Cave) and Episode 76 (Top 5 Comedic Characters).

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 Scenes in Sickbay. Your comments might be used via a Temporal Causality Loop in an upcoming episode.

And don't forget to check out for our entire back catalog of episodes and a detailed rundown on every episode of Star Trek ever.
