TrekRanks Episode 86: Top 5 Moments In Song

Originally released on June 17, 2020

Listen to the show :

Anybody know a good song?!? How about one that was featured in-universe in an episode of Star Trek? Well, if not, we have you covered with the Top 5 Moments in Song on this week's TrekRanks! It's a huge episode, featuring all kinds of jaunty, uplifting and somber musical moments throughout Trek history. There are way more Moments in Song in Trek than you probably remember, so get ready for a lot of singing with our expert panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Jenn Tifft and Justin Oser. This is a special episode that definitely hits all the right notes!

This week's show opens with a comprehensive Level One Diagnostic in which our panel briefly discuss some of the groups and music that has impacted their lives, and includes a great story from Justin about his wife's award-winning Trek composition from 2019.

After a quick Prime Directive to detail how everyone eventually approached their lists, our crew jumps into The Order of Things to reveal their picks via our usual "Five Words and a Hashtag Summary." After going through a few Secondary Systems picks and a Regeneration Cycle breakdown, the episode hunkers down in a Temporal Causality Loop flashback to Episode 81 and the "Top 5 Sheltered in Place Episodes."

If you have your own picks you would like to relay to us, please hail us at 609-512-LLAP (5527) and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your Top 5 Moments in Song. (Or you can record it yourself and just DM us @TrekRanks on Twitter.) Your comments could be used via a Temporal Causality Loop on an upcoming episode (and might get you a chance to be a guest on a future episode, too).

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.
