157: One of Those Memes

Writers' Room - Enterprise Movie. How a television series ends may color how viewers feel about that series as a whole. All too often, a series is canceled without notice, and many loose ends are left untied. Sometimes, the series writers know the end is coming, and have chosen how to tell that final story before shuffling off that mortal coil. Even in such cases, the last story may not be to everyone's liking, and possibly won't give viewers the closure they feel the characters deserve....

Every society goes through stages of evolution, often propelled by religion. Such change is not always welcome and is rarely easily accepted. There will always be those who feel they are losing power and try to silence those who bring new knowledge to light. But the change eventually becomes the norm—at least until others with more knowledge begin the cycle again. And this can happen on any world, as we see in fourth season of Enterprise in what has come to be known as The Vulcan...

New #WarpFive! “Oh, Hoshi, I Love You!” Season One Hoshi Moments The earliest interactions between people are often the most formative - regardless of whether those people exist in real life, or fictional characters. Though first impressions can often be wrong, many people still cling to those initial moments and form judgments of a person or character, even if those judgments are inaccurate due to limited perception and experience. Therefore, if one is to really know another person...

"Detained" Deep Dive. In the wake of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Executive Order 9066 was issued by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, authorizing the deportation and incarceration of Japanese Americans. Nearly 120,00 people on the West Coast were forced into internment camps further inland under suspicion of spying for the enemy. At least 62% of those incarcerated were United States citizens. These actions were found much later to be based on "race prejudice, war...

Writing the MACOs Into Starfleet. The Military Assault Command Operations became a part of Star Trek: Enterprise in season three. Not a division of Starfleet, they were a United Earth military organization that had trained relentlessly as soldiers, but had little actual battle experience outside of simulations, though their technology and tactics were more advanced. Rumor has it that after The United Federation of Planets was founded, Starfleet turned towards science and exploration,...

Season 4 Retrospective Part 2. Genetically enhanced humans have popped up in all forms of science fiction media for almost as long as the genre has existed, and Star Trek is no exception. Our first look at "augments," or genetically engineered humans, came in the original Star Trek series episode "Space Seed", when we meet the unforgettable Khan and learn about the Eugenics Wars of Earth past. Gene Roddenberry based this backstory on events from our own history during World War II, when...

Fathers of Star Trek: Enterprise. In most stories, mothers are generally represented in a positive light, but what about fathers? In many stories, fathers are presented as stern, authority figures that generally lack displays of emotion. Many characters have strained relations ships with their fathers, and there are frequently cases of estrangement betweent fathers and their children. Standing out from the crowd, Star Trek: Enterprise is rich with examples of positive father...

Death on the NX-01. Fans of Star Trek often debate which Captain is their favorite, which generally leads to the debate of which Captain is "the best." Discussions often include topics such as which Captain was the most diplomatic, disobeyed the Prime Directive the most, which Captain would you like to serve under, and which Captain would you survive the longest under. An image has been going around the internet showing that Archer lost 65% of his crew during the run of the show, so...

NX-01 Movie Night: Frankenstein. Friendship and fellowship is important for people's general health and well-being. All of the Star Trek series have shown some sort of interaction between the members of its crew on screen in varying ways. The Next Generation had poker, Deep Space Nine had Vic's lounge, Voyager had Sandrine's and the resort program, and Enterprise had movie night. Since the invention of home video releases of films, many fans of movies have participated in an event know...

Zombies in Pop Culture and "Impluse." The general public has been made aware of zombies with the explosion of these undead beings in pop culture due to television shows such as The Walking Dead and iZombie, as well as films such as Night of the Living Dead and World War Z. However, what the general public knows about zombies is very far from what zombies originally were in Haitian Voodoo, and their original representation in films like White Zombie with Bela Lugosi. In this episode...

"Extinction" Commentary. Season three of Star Trek: Enterprise has some of the best episodes in the show's entire run. However, early in the season, while trying to follow up on leads as to the location of the Xindi home world, our intrepid crew arrives at an empty planet with a burned corpse near a broken shuttle. Though the episode was directed by Star Trek veteran LeVar Burton, sometimes even the most talented directors don't have the best material to work with. In this episode of...

Season 4 With Larry Nemecek. One of the biggest regrets of the cancellation of Star Trek: Enterprise was that it happened right at a time when digital cameras were making their way into the main stream. Behind the scenes photos were limited to Polaroid photos and how many pictures a roll of film could hold. Had it lasted a few more seasons, we would have had the most documented behind the scenes photos of any Trek series to date. However, we have the next best thing. Larry Nemecek has...

Comparing "Judgement" and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. There are many episodes of Star Trek that have a sense of familiarity. With well over 700 episodes an films, its understandable when a writer comes up with a story that is similar to one we have seen before. However, when a writer tells a story that is meant to be an homage to a previous tale, will fans consider it to be a case of too much fan service? In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandi Jackola, Patrick Devlin,...

A Conversation With Dave Rossi. Life often takes people down unexpected avenues. Case in point: Dave Rossi. He never intended to end up in Hollywood, working on his most favorite franchise, on the series with which he grew up. Not only did he spearhead the remastering of TOS, but worked for fourteen years straight on every incarnation of Star Trek from The Next Generation to Enterprise. In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Patrick Devlin, and Brandi Jackola speak...

Vulcans and the Path to Discovery. Vulcans have been a part of Star Trek since the first episode of the original series. Viewers spent decades with this race, feeling that they understood what Vulcans represent, and how they behave. Then Star Trek: Enterprise came along and showed us a different side of the Vulcans - a side which is also represented in Star Trek: Discovery. In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Patrick Devlin, and Brandi Jackola are joined by...
