Originally released on December 08, 2023

Listen to the show :

It's another edition of "Scenes on Trek" as our four-deep panel takes on the "Top 5 Scenes on an Alien Ship." From one-off visitors across all four quadrants to weekly regulars like the Romulans and Klingons, there are an immeasurable number of scenes taking place on alien's ship. And our panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Arielle K., Foz Rotten and Adam Sanders beam on board to relay all their choices.

Episode Rundown:

Level One Diagnostic Cycle: We go through our roll call of past "Scenes in Trek" topics.

Prime Directive: The panel gets into the details of how they each defined the many potential options for "Scenes on an Alien Ship."

The Order of Things: Everyone reveals their scene with the usual "Five words and a hashtag" summary, along with the thinking behind why they chose it.

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 discuss some of the interesting statistical anomalies that arose from the discussion.

Temporal Distortion: We flashback to Episode 169 of the TrekRanks Podcast and relay voicemail picks from our show on the "Top 5 Trek Tropes."
