Originally released on May 10, 2024

Listen to the show :

It doesn't get much more clear that the "Top 5 Love Letters to Trek." This week on TrekRanks our expert panel of host Jim Moorhouse and guests Heather Kirby, Chris Chaplin and Patrick Carlin, do a deep dive into those episodes that pay respect to the core of Star Trek. Our crew covers a lot of ground from the heart and soul of the franchise, to the mechanics of the show, and, of course, to the series' 60-year history. This one you can't miss.

Episode Rundown:

Prime Directive: We skip our Diagnostic Cycle this week to jump into everyone's breakdown on exactly how they narrowed down their lists and made their final choices.

The Order of Things: We preview each pick with our patented TrekRanks "Five words and a hashtag" summary.

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.

If you have your own picks you would like to relay to us, please hail us at 757-828-RANK (7265) and record your own personal TrekRanks log to let us know your Top 5 Love Letters to Trek.
