Crushes can come in all different shapes and sizes – infatuation, forbidden fruit, school yard – and on this week's TrekRanks it is time to reveal yours! It's time to get your crush on. It's the Top 5 Trek Crushes! (Not Crushers – that was Episode 108.) Our amazing panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Ryan Riddle and Ashley V. Robinson cover a lot of territory from TOS to Discovery and everything in between.
• Prime Directive: This week we skip our Level One Diagnostic and jump straight into our Prime Directives to break down exactly how everyone finalized 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 crush.
o Secondary Systems: Our guests then each rattle off a few additional selections for the picks that just missed our lists!
• Regeneration Cycle: Everyone recaps their picks we go through some of the interesting statistical anomalies that arose from the discussion.
• Temporal Distortion: We relay some listener feedback and then flashback to Episode 121 and the Top 5 Delta Quadrant Species, a super fun topic.
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 Trek Crushes. (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).
