"Computer, arch!" TrekRanks tackles some of Star Trek's most popular and renown stories as we breakdown our Top 5 Holodeck Episodes! Host Jim Moorhouse is joined by Will Conlin and Marty Allee of Reading Trek, as we fire up the TrekRanks holosuite (a place where you can be anything you want to be) and close our month-long Pride celebration.
The final picks from our panel include several classics and quite a few deep cut selections that are sure to surprise. This week's show skips the normal Diagnostic Cycle and jumps straight into our Prime Directive, where each of our guests defines how they narrowed down their selections and made their final picks.
Jim, Will and Marty then break down their final picks in The Order of Things by revealing their "Five Words and a Hashtag Summaries." Based on the Prime Directive from each host, there are definitely more options available for selection than you might think, and the deep cut choices in all the lists show just how broad all the options were. Classics, deep cuts and duplicate picks abound, and the picks get even more in depth when the crew calls up their Secondary Systems selections.
After a quick recap of all the picks in the Regeneration Cycle, the episode concludes with a visit into a Temporal Causality Loop as we flashback to Episode 30 and our Top 5 Hottest Characters, Part 1 (the episode that kicked off our Pride Month salute).
