TrekRanks Episode 144: Top 5 Trek Gambles

Originally released on September 29, 2022

Listen to the show :

A live show from Las Vegas is the perfect place to tackle the "Top 5 Trek Gambles," a topic that can go in a bunch of different directions. From life-or-death gambles to production gambles to on-screen games of chance, our panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Alex Perry, Debbie Moltisanti, Josh Zeller and Jamie McGregor cover all their bets in making the tough calls this week. We bet you're going to love this one.

Episode Rundown:

- Level One Diagnostic Cycle: There are lots of ways to breakdown a Trek Gamble: from actual gambling for quatloos to big life-changing gambles to production choices, we dissect the different opportunities on the table.

- Prime Directive: Each member of our five-person panel highlights how they narrowed down their list and 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 each rattle off a few additional selections for the picks that just missed our lists!

- Regeneration Cycle: The group recaps their picks and discuss some of the interesting statistical anomalies that arose from the discussion.

- • Temporal Distortion: We flashback to our last live show (Episode 136 from Chicago) and the Top 5 Sleazy Episodes and relay some of the great feedback we received for that show.

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 Gambles. (Or you can record it yourself and just DM us @TrekRanks on Twitter.)
