Connections, characters, crossovers and chorus! It's time for the "Top 5 Strange New Worlds Season 2 Moments," a deep dive into one of the most complete and satisfying seasons of Star Trek ever. Our host Jim Moorhouse and panel guests Jamie McGregor and Paige Thatcher run through their favorites from production to creatives to characters to episodes in this comprehensive recap! We cover a lot of ground from Spock/Chapel to La'an/Kirk and everything in between.

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!
