This is a jam-packed show filled with scores of references and call-outs that connect two of the greatest franchises in science fiction history. (Honestly, you won’t believe how interwoven these shows are!) Our panel this week features experts not only in Trek, but in The Twilight Zone as well, including host Jim Moorhouseand guests Grace Moore (from Women at Warp) and Ryan Riddle. That’s the signpost up ahead! Your next stop, TrekRanks!This week’s show opens with a comprehensive Level One Diagnostic in which our panel picks their favorite episodes of The Twilight Zone. From well-known classics to unheralded gems, deep cuts abound throughout the discussion. After defining how everyone made their final picks in the Prime Directive, our crew jumps into The Order of Things to reveal their picks via our usual “Five Words and a Hashtag Summary.” Many of the Trek picks feature references to The Twilight Zone episodes that inspired the selection, so the cuts go deep in this detailed conversation. After going through a few Secondary Systems picks and a Regeneration Cycle breakdown, the episode then moves into a Temporal Causality Loop flashback to Episode 83 and we relay some of the best listener feedback we received for the “Top 5 Scenes in Sickbay.”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 Twilight Zone Episodes
