Another great season of Star Trek is in the books, which means it is once again time for another glorious TrekRanks recap show. This week we bust through the Galactic Barrier to bring you the Top 5 Discovery Season 4 Moments. Our expert panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Bill Mann and Abby Sommer cover it all from the DMA to Species Ten-C. As always, we use the TrekRanks Matrix to cut through our season recap shows, with five distinct categories in each round! In the end it was a season of Trek like no other, and this is the recap show that will do it justice.
Level One Diagnostic Cycle: We break down the five distinct categories we use in our season recap shows. In order, this week's panelists reveal their picks in the following categories: Production Design, Creative, Dabo Round Wildcard, Character and Episode! While production design, character and episode are straightforward categories, the Round 4 topic of Top Creative is focused on the actor or creative who connected with Trek both on and off the screen. And the Round 3 Wildcard Pick is basically the Dabo Round!
Prime Directive: Our crew breaks down exactly how they defined their lists.
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.
Secondary Systems: Our guests each rattle off a few additional selections for the picks 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 123 of TrekRanks and relay some of the great feedback we received from our listeners on the Top 5 Spatial Anomalies in Trek. A very fun episode.
