"Top 5 Movie Villians" - a classic TrekRanks topic to be sure. For the first time, we tackle a topic that only includes the 13 Star Trek films. Villains are a quintessential part of Star Trek and we dive deep into the films to analyze what makes a good one. And some of what we uncover might just surprise you! Our expert panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Carlos Miranda and Lee Hutchison make this a spirited episode of TrekRanks, and, as always, a fun one! This is an episode of TrekRanks that is definitely best served cold!
To get into the show this week, our crew jumps straight into into a detailed breakdown of our Prime Directive, where everyone has a slightly different take on how they made their movie villain picks.
Jim, Carlos and Lee then reveal their final picks in The Order of Things with their "Five Word Summaries and a Hashtag." There are quite a few interesting takes and deep cut picks along the way, and when all is said and done, everything calms down for a few additional Secondary Systems selections.
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 an excellent voicemail relaying picks from Episode 79, our look at the "Top 5 Episodes Where the Ship Is a Character."
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 Movie Villains. 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 guest host on TrekRanks.
