Star Trek is predominantly boldly going where no one has gone before, but there are also a bunch of episodes and scenes that take place right here on Sector 001. So, for this special episode of TrekRanks, we have guests from five different countries across the globe (Australia, Canada, England, the Korea Republic and the USA) joining us to break down our Top 5 Scenes on Earth. Host Jim Moorhouse and guests Jen Howse, Dana Kenedy, Daniel Martin and Lyrian McGregor cover a ton of territory on terra prime in this classic "Scenes in Trek" episode of TrekRanks!
We jump straight into our Prime Directive to kick off the show this week to here all the different ways out panelists approached this topic. From holodecks to time travel to alternate histories and futures, there are a bunch of different ways to categorize all the different scenes on earth.
Following that detailed Prime Directive, our panel moves into The Order of Things to reveal their "Five Word Summary and a Hashtag" for each of their Top 5 Scenes on Earth (and the episode in which it appeared). And with more guests than normal for this special episode, we relay all our choices a little quicker this week. Of course, there is always time for a few Secondary Systems picks as well, and the cuts getting even deeper with these selections.
As always, Jim briefly reviews some of the interesting statistical anomalies that emerged from all the selections in the Regeneration Cycle. And then the episode concludes with a visit into a Temporal Causality Loop as we flashback to Episode 88 and a great listener voicemail breaking down our Abstract H topic. And don't forget, we would love to hear from you as well, so if you have your own picks you'd like to relay, 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 on Earth. (You can also record your picks and DM a link to us @TrekRanks on twitter.) Your comments might be used via a Temporal Causality Loop in an upcoming episode.
