On this week's TrekRanks we get into a deep-dive conversation on "Trek Minutiae," which is best defined as the small, precise and trivial details of any specific topic. Which for us means: Star Trek. This episode has a little bit of everything for the Trek connoisseur - in-universe picks, production picks, character specific picks, episode specific picks. Our panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guest Adam Drosin have a fun time breaking down those tiny details (some mundane, some profound) that you'll find throughout Trek!
• Prime Directive: We jump straight into our Prime Directives to figure out exactly how our panel decided to tackle a broad topic like "minutiae."
• The Order of Things: Everyone reveals their picks with the usual "Five words and a hashtag" summary, along with one episode that helps frame their choice.
o Secondary Systems: We rattle off a few additional selections for the picks that just missed our lists!
• Regeneration Cycle: Everyone recaps their picks and we try and make some sense of it all with a few interesting statistical anomalies that always seem to arise in our picks.
• Temporal Distortion: We flashback to Episode 112 and a very popular topic on TrekRanks; the Top 5 One-Off Klingons. For this Temporal Distortion we play a great voicemail from one of our listeners.
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 picks for Trek Minutiae. (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).
