Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

Anthony Montgomery Talks Travis and Star Trek.

Travis Mayweather may not have been the first human born in space, but for us he will always be the space "boomer" nearest and dearest to our hearts! Chosen to be the first-watch helmsman of the NX-01, Travis was the most naturally-gifted ensign and logged more deep-space interstellar star hours than any pilot in Starfleet. From his early days on the ECS Horizon, running cargo with his family, to his years of distinguished service aboard the Enterprise, Travis was the personification of enthusiasm and optimism in a future where no "boomer" had gone before.

In this episode of Warp Five, Will Nguyen is joined by none other than the brilliant, multi-talented Anthony Montgomery, the man who brought Travis Mayweather to life. In this very special interview, Anthony gives us a rare tour of his career, shares with us his memories of how he first started acting, why he auditioned for Enterprise, and his fondest memories of the show. Anthony also updates us on what's happening with his graphic novel series Miles Away, shares a few updates on other things that he's currently working on, and talks about his upcoming appearance at the 2050 Daytona Beach con in Florida.

If you’d like to find out more about 2050 Daytona Beach, set for Halloween weekend (Oct 30 - Nov 1), visit http://2050.events.

Warp Five 79: Hayes Fever

A Major Pain for Lt. Malcolm Reed...

In Season Three of Enterprise, the crew dynamic of the NX-01 was “enhanced" in a way that we have never seen before on Star Trek. Due to the dire circumstances that developed at the beginning of the Xindi Arc, we were introduced to an entirely new branch of service from the United Earth Government: the MACOs; a specialized military attachment with orders to safeguard the crew and protect the mission. On Warp Five Episode 11, Christopher Jones talked about the concept of the MACOs and how they were folded into the overall Star Trek mythos.

In this episode of Warp Five – Will, Jeff and our associate producers Mike Morrison and Floyd Dorsey continue our research into the MACOs, with an in-depth look at Major Jeremiah Hayes, played by actor Stephen Culp. Hayes was seen in only five episodes in Season Three as the commanding officer of the MACOs for the mission into the Delphic Expanse. He left and indelible mark as one of the most memorable second-tier characters on Enterprise; akin to the importance of Kellie Waymire’s Crewman Cutler. Please join your Warp Five Crew as we delve deeper into the MACOs' files and learn a great deal more about the valiant Major Hayes!

Warp Five 78: The Decommissioning Enterprise BLUs

Enterprise Season Four a.k.a The Decommissioning Enterprise BLUs

Enterprise Season Four on Blu-Ray continues the visual extravaganza from Seasons One through Three, with breathtaking 1080p high-definition picture and 5.1 sound. The special features and bonus materials that were recorded specifically for this Blu-Ray set are, most notably, the best we have seen for any of the collections. The four-part "Before Her Time: Decommissioning Enterprise" and the 90-minute "In Conversation: Writing Star Trek: Enterprise" offer fans a deeper understanding of the bittersweet beginning of the end for Star Trek on television.

"Before Her Time: Decommissioning Enterprise” is however, the absolute MUST SEE special feature; not just for this collection, but for all four Blu-Ray sets. This in-depth documentary is 120 minutes of unbridled and unfiltered retrospectives, chronicling the final season of Enterprise. Join us in the Conference Room with our very special guest Larry Nemecek, as he reminisces about his experiences on-set for the final days of Enterprise and most importantly, the final moments of Star Trek on television and the end of a world-wide cultural phenomenon.
