TrekRanks Episode 88: Abstract H

Originally released on July 16, 2020

Listen to the show :

We get "abstract" for the second time on TrekRanks this week as we explore Abstract H. It's definitely a unique and odd topic, and that is literally it. Just the letter "H." Whatever that means to you in the world of Star Trek. A place, a character, a concept. It's up to you. It's Abstract H. Our expert panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Kerry Purvis and John Krikorian get deep into the alphabet and break it all down in this fun, original topic.

The show begins with a Diagnostic Cycle that reinforces exactly what we mean by Abstract H, which is as simple as it sounds. We discuss some potential examples and try to get everyone in the right mindset for the show. We then move into our Prime Directive, where each of our guests defines how they made their selections and narrowed down their final picks.

Jim, Kerry and John then break down their final picks in The Order of Things by revealing their "Five Words and a Hashtag Summaries" and an episode that best showcases their Abstract H selection. Everything is in bounds this week, and the conversation reflects that. When it's all said and done, we add a few Secondary Systems selections to our picks.

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 82 with an amazing voicemail from Naomi, who breaks down her favorite Trek's Run of Five Episodes.

As always, make sure to hail us at 609-512-LLAP (5527) and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your picks for Abstract H. Your comments might be used via a Temporal Causality Loop in an upcoming episode. And your recording might also be considered as an audition as a future TrekRanks' guest host.
