It's time for another deep-dive topic as we get into the "Top 5 Unjustly Accused Storylines" just in time for the Season 3 premiere of Star Trek: Lower Decks, which ended on a brilliant Captain Freeman cliffhanger. There are no shortages of engrossing stories in Star Trek's history involving our heroes being unjustly accused, both in major, life-changing ways, as well as in small personal ways. Our panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Matt Hansen and Ross Webster are guaranteed to bring the gavel down in both big and small ways as they tackle every corner of Trek on this fun episode.
- Prime Directive: We skip our Level One Diagnostic this week to jump straight into a break down of how everyone made their final picks.
- 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 all rattle off a few additional selections for the picks that just missed our lists, including some picks hot off the press from the newest era of Trek!
- Regeneration Cycle: Everyone recaps their picks and we discuss one of the best statistical anomalies to ever come out of an episode of TrekRanks.
- Temporal Distortion: We flashback to Episode 131 of TrekRanks with a great voicemail covering our popular "Top 5 One-Off Guest Stars" 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 Unjustly Accused Storylines. (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).
