Everyone contributes in this episode of TrekRanks as we break down the "Top 5 Ensemble Episodes." Our panel of host Jim Moorhouse and first-time guests Anika Dane and Simon Foster highlight those episodes in which the entire cast play important roles and help portray the group as a whole, rather than as individuals. From heavy hitters to deep cuts and everything in between, this one quite appropriately covers it all.
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.
Temporal Inversion: We flashback to a previous episode of TrekRanks and relay some of the feedback received from listeners.
