TrekRanks joins Nova Fleet this week to report on the latest from Star Trek: Lower Decks with our comprehensive look at the "Top 5 Lower Decks Season 4 Moments." From Orion to Feringinar and every Kolvoord Starburst in between, this season of Lower Decks was another sidesplitting, tear-inducing masterpiece from showrunner Mike McMahan. Host Jim Moorhouse and panel guests Charlynn Schmiedt and Todd Kehoe list their favorites from production to creatives to characters in this awesome tribute.
Level One Diagnostic Cycle: We break down the five distinct categories we use in our season recap shows. In order, this week's panelists reveal their picks in the following categories: Production Design, MVP Creative, Dabo Round Wildcard, Character and Episode!
Prime Directive: Our crew breaks down exactly how they defined their lists.
The Order of Things: Everyone reveals their picks with the usual "Five words and a hashtag" summary, along with one episode that helps frame their choice.
Secondary Systems: Our guests each rattle off a few additional selections for the picks that just missed our lists!
Regeneration Cycle: Everyone recaps their picks and discusses some of the interesting statistical anomalies that arose from the discussion.
Temporal Distortion: We flashback to Episode 165 of TrekRanks and relay some of the great feedback we received from our listeners on the Top 5 Portals Portaling.
