Originally released on December 24, 2022

Listen to the show :

In celebration of our 150th episode, we hit the biggest and broadest topic in our history. This week we tackle TrekRanks Potpourri with a spin of our random chroniton episode generator before each pick as our crew dive into our catalog of 150 unique Star Trek topics. "Scenes in a Cave," "Two-Part Episodes," "Coolest Looking Aliens"? Literally any topic from our vast array of past shows could find their way into this incredible episode. (And spoiler alert, our expert panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Bill Mann, Abby Sommer and Carl Wonders cover every incarnation of Trek for the first-time ever with their amazing picks.) It's Episode 150. And it's massive.

Episode Rundown:

Diagnostic Cycle: We get into discussing how TrekRanks Potpourri is going to work, with each guest spinning the random chroniton generator wheel before each round.

Prime Directive: Our guests have an amazing surprise for host Jim Moorhouse, but you'll have to listen in to find out what it is.

The Order of Things: After spinning the wheel, each panelist gives the pick that first comes into their mind, and then reveal their five-word summary and a hashtag to go with it.

Secondary Systems: A warp speed round and some additional picks from our guests add to the fun.

Regeneration Cycle: Everyone recaps their picks (which include not only picks but the topics they were assigned) and the crew discuss some of the interesting statistical anomalies that arose from the show.

Temporal Inversion: We flashback to some listener feedback for Episode 143, the Top 5 DS9 Guilty Pleasure Episodes.
