TrekRanks Episode 179: Top 5 One-Off Captains

Originally released on March 18, 2024

Listen to the show :

"One-Off Captains" are on the table this week as TrekRanks returns to one of our favorite ongoing series. Our panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Heather Kirby and Michael Bentley break down those one-time appearances of captains from Starfleet to Romulus and from the 22nd century to the 32nd! Lots of different ways to analyze this one from the bridge of whatever ship you might currently be stationed.

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 their 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 selections 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.
