TrekRanks Episode 180: Top 5 Final Adventures

Originally released on March 31, 2024

Listen to the show :

In celebration of the fifth and final season of Star Trek: Discovery, we are diving deep into the "Top 5 Final Adventures" on this week's TrekRanks. A "final adventure" in Star Trek can be a lot of things. It can be super big and broad, or really small and focused. It can be a series, a season, a character, a ship, a story arc – almost anything can include a final adventure, so we have a lot of ground to cover this week with our expert panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Charlynn Schmiedt and Thad Hait. This one is guaranteed to be an adventure.

Episode Rundown:
