TrekRanks Episode 167: Top 5 Weather-Related Incidents

Originally released on September 28, 2023

Listen to the show :

Do not adjust your Weather Modification Network for this great episode of TrekRanks as we examine the "Top 5 Weather-Related Incidents" in Star Trek history. From rain on Ferenginar to firestorms, well, pretty much everywhere (!), we shelter in a safe place to report on the weather thoughout Trek. Host Jim Moorhouse is joined by frequent guest Ross Webster and actual meteorologist Katie Nickolaou, who educates all of us on the realities of weather in Trek (and you will even learn what a "haboob" is).

Episode Rundown:

Diagnostic Cycle: Where we briefly get into the details of defining the show's specific topic.

Prime Directive: Each guest on this week's panel reveals exactly how they narrowed down list 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, including a breakdown on all the different types of weather patterns discussed.

Temporal Inversion: We flashback to a previous episode of TrekRanks and play a great voicemail dissecting the "Top 5 Xindi War Moments."

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 Weather-Related Incidents. (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).
