TrekRanks Episode 154: Connective Trek

Originally released on March 16, 2023

Listen to the show :

Star Trek is a modern day mythology with connective threads running throughout it's 50-plus year history. This week's TrekRanks gets experimental as our panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Ross Webster and Michael each spin their own narrative thread by connecting one episode to the next from pick 5 to 4 to 3 to 2 and eventually to a number one choice that completes the "Connective Trek" they are weaving. The topics vary from deep and personal to minutia revealing and everything in between. This one will keep you guessing.

Episode Rundown:

Prime Directive: Our panel set-up their narrative thread, but without revealing too much about their specific topic.

The Order of Things: Everyone reveals their picks with the usual "Five words and a hashtag" summary, with slowly setting up their next pick and summarizing their past pick and just making it all connect!

Secondary Systems: We run through some secondary ideas that were almost part of our lists.

Regeneration Cycle: Everyone recaps their picks and we discuss some of the interesting statistical anomalies that arose from the discussion.

Temporal Inversion: We flashback to Episode 144 of TrekRanks and relay some of the great feedback we received from our "Top 5 Trek Gambles" 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 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).
