TrekRanks Episode 106: Top 5 Rescues

Originally released on March 11, 2021

Listen to the show :

Rescue missions are an integral part of the framework of Star Trek and on this week's TrekRanks we put our expert team together to take on the Top 5 Rescues in Trek history. Host Jim Moorhouse is joined by guests Brooke Horton and Noah Averbach-Katz, the actor and Star Trek fanatic who played the Andorian Ryn during the third season of Star Trek: Discovery, and they plan it all out to dissect every type of rescue (literally) in Trek. This is a fun one!

Episode Rundown:

Prime Directive: We skip the level one diagnostic and jump right into everyone's Prime Directive breaking down exactly how they made their picks.

The Order of Things: Our panel makes their picks, accompanied by the usual five words and a hashtag.

Secondary Systems: Our guests break it down even further with some additional deep dive rescue missions.

Regeneration Cycle: We recap our picks and breakdown some of the interesting statistics that came out of everyone's selections.

Temporal Distortion: A fantastic voicemail flashing back to Episode 94 and our Top 5 Cold Opens.

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 Rescues. (Or you can record it yourself and just DM us @TrekRanks on Twitter.) Your comments could be used in a Temporal Distortion on an upcoming episode (and might get you a chance to be a guest on a future episode, too).
