TrekRanks Episode 153: Top 5 Worf Episodes

Originally released on February 07, 2023

Listen to the show :

Today is a good day to Worf! He is the most prolific character in the history of Star Trek and this week he goes under the TrekRanks microscope as we select our "Top 5 Worf Episodes." The Son of Mogh, the brother of Kurn and the Par'Mach'Kai of Jadzia, K'Ehleyr and Troi (at least in a few universes), Worf has literally done it all in Star Trek, as our warrior panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Ron Worbel, Swapna Krishna and Daniel Martin discuss. This might just be the most honorable episode of TrekRanks yet!

Episode Rundown:

Diagnostic Cycle: We go through our normal character episode roll call and then have each of our guests choose one word that think best describes Worf.

Prime Directive: Our Dahar Masters each detail how they come up with their lists celebrating Worf. Each pick could fall anywhere between a massive Worf episode and a small moment with the character we want to highlight.

The Order of Things: Everyone reveals their picks with the usual "Five word summary and a hashtag."

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 tell you exactly how it broke down between TNG and DS9 across 20 unique Worf moments.

Temporal Inversion: This week's super-sized Temporal Inversion is critical as we go into a deep dive of Daniel Martin's Worf picks, after he was forced to miss the initial recording of The Order of Things.

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 Worf Episodes. (Or you can record it yourself and just DM us @TrekRanks on Twitter.) Your comments could be used as part of a Temporal Inversion on an upcoming episode (and might get you a chance to be a guest on a future episode, too).

And don't forget to check out for our entire back catalog of episodes and a detailed rundown on every episode of Star Trek ever.
