Originally released on September 01, 2023

Listen to the show :

Portals are going to portal. And in this celebration of portals throughout the Star Trek universe, we tackle the "Top 5 Portals Portaling" in celebration of the launch of Star Trek: Lower Decks fourth season. Inspired by Brad Boimler himself, our host Jim Moorhouse, along with guests Carlos Miranda and Paul Edinger, travel from location to location to highlight some of the most memorable portal journeys in Trek history.

Episode Rundown:

Diagnostic Cycle: Where we hear from Boimler himself and then get into the details defining portals portaling.

Prime Directive: Our guests reveal exactly how they narrowed down their lists and made their final choices.

The Order of Things: All the picks are revealed with the TrekRanks' original "Five words and a hashtag" summary, along with one episode that helps frame their choice.

Secondary Systems: For a few extra picks that just missed our final list.

Regeneration Cycle: The panel recaps their picks and we dissect some of the interesting statistical anomalies that arose from the discussion.

Temporal Inversion: We flashback to a previous episode of TrekRanks and relay some of the feedback received from listeners.
