Episode 036 - Enterprise 2x09 - Singularity

This episode feels much like an homage to the Original Series and The Next Generation episodes, Naked Time and Naked Now. We get to see a few characters act out of character, and some perhaps a little too in character? Either way it ended up being a lot of fun, and really, can you rate an episode that features the phrase "Reed Alert" very harshly? We're operating with a skeleton crew for this week's episode as both Josh and Chris are out. Star Trek: Enterprise 02x09 - Singularity Directed...

Episode 035 - Enterprise 2x08 - The Communicator

While investigating a pre-warp civilization, Reed loses his communicator. He and Archer return to the surface to search for it before it can disrupt the natural progression of this society, but are instead captured and interrogated as potential spies. Our ratings for this episode were all over the place, as were our feelings on Archer's strategy to minimize cultural contamination..

Episode 034 - Enterprise 2x07 - The Seventh

T'Pol is contacted by the Vulcan High Command concerning unfinished business with the Ministry of Security. Archer gets a bit shitty with her about it, but eventually agrees to help her catch the rogue Vulcan agent, Menos. Our ratings for this episode were all over the place. There were some strong moments, some weak moments, and a little bit of nonsense scattered about.

Supplemental Log 003 - 2nd Star Trek Discovery Trailer

The latest Star Trek Discovery trailer released only a few short days ago. In it we see and hear a bit more about the Klingons, find Lieutenant Commander Burnham running through the darkened corridors of a ship, and see her sealed inside a set of forcefields. Beyond mention of a war, we really don't know too much about the series yet. But that won't stop us from talking at length about what we do know. Join us as we discuss the newest trailer for Star Trek Discovery!

Episode 033 - Enterprise 2x06 - Marauders

Apologies, our audio is a little off for the first 6 minutes or, but it clears up after that! This episode felt a little off now and then. We attributed some of that to the fact that it was inspired by the 1960s film, The Magnificent Seven, itself inspired by the 1954 film, Seven Samurai. The format didn't fit perfectly into the Star Trek universe but it still made for a pretty fun ride.

Episode 032 - Enterprise 2x05 - A Night in Sickbay

Name a few characters on Enterprise you love. I'd wager Phlox and Porthos are among them. Well this episode features lots of Phlox and Porthos! Though it ended up mostly ok. :( Archer's character kind of falls entirely apart this episode! There are some good lines, some fun scenes, and by the end, maybe we see some character development on Archer's part. But every poor quality Archer has shown over the last 30-some episodes is magnified 10x this whole episode. Hopefully things turn...

Episode 031 - Enterprise 2x04 - Dead Stop

After limping away from the minefield from last episode for the past four days, Captain Archer decides its time to do something he'd hoped would never be necessary. Send a distress call. Salvation comes in the form of rumors of an automated repair station nearby. While the crew thank their lucky stars, Archer finds this whole thing a bit fishy. ::Spoilers, we all loved this episode:: Enterprise 02x04 - Dead Stop Directed by Roxann Dawson Written by Michael Sussman & Phyllis...

Episode 030 - Enterprise 2x03 - Minefield

The Enterprise finds itself with a mine stuck to its hull after accidentally stumbling into a minefield placed by something calling itself the Romulan Star Empire. Before long, Reed soon finds himself skewered through the leg by said mine, and really begins to test the patience of his captain (and the audience) with his mournful "woe is me" attitude.

Episode 029 - Enterprise 2x02 - Carbon Creek

T'Pol tells Archer and Trip a story about the true first contact between Vulcans and humans on Earth, way back in 1957 in the small mining town, Carbon Creek, Pennsylvania. An episode that ended up delighting each one of your hosts! Enterprise 02x02 - Carbon Creek Directed by James A. Contner Written by Chris Black Guest Stars: Ann Cusack, J.

Episode 028 - Enterprise 2x01 - Shockwave Part 2

Welcome to Season Two of Star Trek Enterprise, guys! We made it! Archer and Daniels are poking around a library in the 31st century while back in the 22nd, the crew of the Enterprise is desperately trying to survive a Suliban occupation of their ship. Shockwave Part 1 was one of the strongest of the series so far, will part 2 keep it going?

Episode 027 - Enterprise Season One Wrap Up

Last time we finished up Season 1 of Enterprise, so this week we’re going to take a quick look back at the series so far; hand out awards for “best of” and announce the winner of the Enterprise Trivia Cup. Joe took home the gold with a sizable lead. Though Jason promises his victory will be short lived as we get into the later seasons of Enterprise. Enterprise has a lot of ups and downs and our opinions on the show are incredibly varied. Joe and Josh are of the mind that this first...

Episode 001 - Enterprise 01x01 - Broken Bow Pt. 1

Hello and welcome to Episode 1, the redo. Our first recording did not make for good radio, so we never posted it. Having learned a bit over recording the first season of Enterprise, we decided to go back and give the two part pilot another shot. After these two episodes, audio quality (and host quality?) will drop a bit, but we get our act together more and more as the season gets moving. Stick with us! We're introduced to all of our new favorite characters for the first time this...

Supplemental Log 002 - Star Trek Discovery Trailer

The Star Trek Discovery trailer was released a short time ago and, like all of you, we had a lot of thoughts.. Regardless of your feelings, it's certainly an interesting time for Star Trek.

Seems like Star Trek changes direction every 6 months these days--Where do you think its going from here?

Episode 026 - Enterprise 1x26 - Shockwave Pt. 1

The Temporal Cold War heats up as Future Man and Silik continue to meddle with Archer's historic mission. The death of 3600 Paraagan colonists rests on Archer's shoulders, the Enterprise is ordered to return to Earth, and Crewman Daniels visits Archer despite shedding his mortal coil earlier this season.

Episode 025 - Enterprise 1x25 - Two Days and Two Nights

The Enterprise crew finally make it to Risa, wrapping up the three episode arc that started with Fallen Hero. Archer settles in to do some light reading, Trip and Reed seek to expand their horizons, Travis tackles a local cliff face, and Hoshi practices her language skills on the local population. Of course this is a TV show, so nothing goes according to plan, but without revealing too many spoilers--at least three senior officers shed their clothes at some point during this...

Supplemental Log 001 - Star Trek Timelines Review

Star Trek: Timelines Hello and welcome to another episode of There Are Four Mics: A Star Trek Podcast. I am your host, Joe Heiser. We weren’t able to get together and record an episode discussing Enterprise for this week; so we thought we’d take the opportunity to try something a little different. The Star Trek universe is much more than just the TV shows and movies, especially with the Star Trek vacuum that was created after the end of Enterprise in 2004. So I’m talking books, graphic...

Episode 024 - Enterprise 1x24 - Desert Crossing

The Enterprise crew once again finds themselves caught in the middle when Archer and Trip accidentally befriend the head of a terrorist organization. The duo are forced to flee into the desert to escape a bombing run. Archer's sidekick, Trip, gets a mild case of heat stroke and flirts with the idea of slipping into a coma. Your hosts disagree with each other about--everything. We're short two members again for this episode! Enterprise 1x24 - Desert Crossing Directed by David...

Episode 023 - Enterprise 1x23 - Fallen Hero

T'Pol learns to never meet your heroes, or at least it'll feel that way at first until you discover they were actually pretty ok in the first place? So maybe T'Pol learns about first impressions? Overall we quite liked this episode despite a few story troubles. Lots of excitement and intrigue in this episode! T'Pol gets a chance develop as a real character and we see that not all Vulcans are the cold, distant, and generally disagreeable lot we've met so far. We're short two members this...

Episode 022 - Enterprise 1x22 - Vox Sola

This is one of those rare Star Trek episodes that actually presents us with a non-traditional alien. A feat that knocked this episode into Chris' list of favorites. For the rest of us it felt like a very traditional Star Trek episode, not bad, but also not exactly remarkable.
