There are so many Star Trek scenes in a cave! And we break down more than a few of them down on this week's TrekRanks with our Top 5 Scenes in a Cave! It's a return of our Scenes in Trek series, and our expert panel of Jim Moorhouse, Alex Perry and Debbie Moltisanti is more than up to the task of spelunking into one of the all-time great Trek tropes. Planet Hell knows no bounds and no cave is too deep for us to highlight! This is a fun one!
The detailed conversation covers scores of great moments through Star Trek's 50-plus year history of caves!
We skip the Diagnostic Cycle this week to jump straight into our usual Prime Directive, where there are many different ways to explore your final list of caves. After highlighting exactly how they narrowed down their lists, our panel moves into The Order of Things to reveal their "Five Word Summary and a Hashtag" for each of their Top 5 Scenes in a Cave (and the episode in which it appeared).
And if that wasn't enough, the Secondary Systems choices are among the most comprehensive in TrekRanks history, as the hosts rattle off another 25 or more episodes to get even deeper into the topic. As always, Jim also briefly reviews some of the interesting statistical anomalies that emerged from their selections in the Regeneration Cycle.
The episode concludes with a visit into a Temporal Causality Loop as we flashback to Episode 65 and our Top 5 Villains Who Weren't Really Villains, one of our most popular topics. As always, make sure to hail us at 609-512-LLAP (5527) and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your Top 5 Scenes in a Cave. Your comments might be used via a Temporal Causality Loop in an upcoming episode.
