TrekRanks Episode 135: Top 5 Picard Season 2 Moments

Originally released on May 25, 2022

Listen to the show :

"Let's see what's out there." The second season of Star Trek: Picard is likely the most bingeable, complete season in Star Trek history, telling one amazing, 10-episode time-travel story on near modern-day Earth. The season was thought provoking, profound and, also, fun! From Q to Guinan and from the Borg Queen to Soong, our expert panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Rob Wrobel and Arielle K. break it all down in our Top 5 Picard Season 2 Moments, featuring our unique five rounds of topics (production design, creative, wildcard, character and episode)!

Episode Rundown:

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 we discuss some of the interesting statistical anomalies that arose from the discussion.

Temporal Distortion: We flashback to Episode 130 of TrekRanks and play a voicemail from our popular Top 5 Q Moments episode, which was our preview for Picard&s second season.
