This one is all about triumphant returns, resurgences and recoveries!

This is a great episode to comeback to TrekRanks for!Episode Rundown:?Level One Diagnostic Cycle: Comebacks are oddly defined by a lot of "r" words (return,recover, resurgence, rally, revival, rebound!), something the comes up in this Diagnostic Cycle.?Prime Directive: For a topic like this, there are a lot of ways to approach a comeback, and our crew covers every corner, while making sure they are all suitably epic.?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.oSecondary Systems: Our guests each rattle off a few additional selections for thepicks that just missed our lists!?Regeneration Cycle: Everyone recaps their picks and discuss some of the interesting statistical anomalies that arose from the discussion.?Temporal Distortion: We flashback to Episode 108 of TrekRanks and relay some of the great feedback we received from our listeners.
