The Perks of Being a Patreon Patron!

In this first Supplemental Episode of Warp Five, Will, Jeff and I discuss something that is very dear and important to all of us here on the Trek.fm network. Quite frankly, that is all of you. Our fans, our listeners, supporters, and all of the people who tune in to Trek.fm make all of this worthwhile thanks to your passion, dedication, and loyalty. You are the most important driving force for the network and via the Patreon program, you can have even more involvement by becoming a patron through various levels of sponsorship.

 

And later in the show, we celebrate and remember the end of an era. Ten years ago on May 13, 2005, the final episode of Enterprise - These Are the Voyages - was aired, which ended the series after 4 years and brought about the end of Star Trek on network television. Will, Jeff and I reflect on what this meant to each of us then, and what it still means to us today 10 years later. Please join us as we warp down memory lane, reminiscing about our fondest moments of Enterprise, and discuss the absence of Star Trek on television this past decade.

Warp Five 71: The Archer-Rans

The Captains on the series Enterprise not named Jonathan Archer.

On Warp Five, we often talk about the important role that Jonathan Archer had as Captain of the NX-01. Since he was the first Starfleet Captain for the first Warp Five capable ship, he didn't have the luxury of Captain's Logs or the precedents laid by the commanders before him. While it's true that Archer often had to rely on his own training and instincts, it is also true that he wasn't completely without contemporaries. Even though he was Captain of the Enterprise, he still had colleagues and friends in command of other ships and areas within Starfleet.

 

In this episode, we're going to take a closer look at the other Captains seen on the series Enterprise...not named Jonathan Archer; more specifically A.G. Robinson and Erika Hernandez (and even Captain Gardner to a smaller degree). What can their experiences tell us about Starfleet in the 22nd century? Would Captain Hernandez's role have been expanded if the series had continued beyond Season 4? Or...how would circumstances have been different if Robinson or Hernandez were given command of the NX-01 instead of Archer? Join us for all this and more!

Warp Five 70: The Head-Butting Race

The Head-Butting Race.

Tellarites! There was never a race on Star Trek as stubborn, as prideful, abrasive, insulting and literally (and figuratively) pig-headed…and these are their “good” qualities! Arguably one of the more interesting races in Star Trek, the Tellarites have long been a fan favorite presumably for one simple reason: They were one of the four founding members of the Coalition of Planets who–alongside the Humans of Starfleet, the Vulcans and the Andorians–helped shape the future of what would eventually become the United Federation of Planets.

 

For the Star Trek fan that caught their first glimpse of a Tellarite in the classic Original Series episode "Journey to Babel", curiosity about them has always been consistently high. Since that episode, there have only been a sprinkling of Tellarite sightings, but they never were truly given their respectful due as a race of such historical significance...until Season 4 of Enterprise. So please join me, Will and Tommy as we try to unravel the mystery of the Tellarites as we speculate as to why this pivotal race to the history of the Federation was so entirely underrepresented.
