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.

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...

Warp Five Role Playing Game. While all Star Trek series have focused on a main set of characters, every once in a while an episode would come along and show the viewers the lower decks of the ship, and what some of the less important crew members would be doing. Enterprise never got the chance to do this, until now... In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandi Jackola, Patrick Devlin, and Brandon-Shea Mutala are joined by Dave Jackola of The Dark Corner Podcast for an RPG adventure...

Season Four Retrospective Part 1. Season four of Star Trek: Enterprise began with the resolution to the cliffhanger of aliens in Nazi uniforms that we saw in the final shot of "Zero Hour." How would the writers and producers resolve that plot thread, and how would the format of the show change now that the Xindi arc was completed? We begin a seven part series taking a look at the fourth season of the show by examining the stories and homages to TOS, which gave Enterprise the feel of the...

Essential Enterprise Season 2. In every season of every Star Trek show, there are some episodes that stand out more than others — but which ones are essential to their respective shows as a whole? We continue our four-part series where we look at each episode of each season and determine if they are essential to the overall narrative of the show. In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandi Jackola, Brandon-Shea Mutala, and Patrick Devlin analyze the second season of Enterprise and...

The Drake equation is a formula devised by scientists that is full of variables, and if you knew the value of each variable, you would be able to calculate how many civilizations are currently in the galaxy. However, evolution can take different paths, and what happens when evolution leads to multiple sentient species developing on a single planet? Enterprise proposes the idea of six sentient species evolving on one planet with the Xindi. However, could this...
