Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

Recasting ENTERPRISE for the Big Screen!

Mike Morrison, co-host of Meta Treks and Associate Producer for Warp Five, threw down the gauntlet to your intrepid Warp Five team. Inspired by To The Journey episode #103 and Meta Treks episode #3, Mike challenged your beloved Team Conference Room with continuing the amazingly fun and, at times, frustrating challenge of recasting Enterprise for a "J.J. Abrams style" major motion picture reboot. And yes, for all of you Boomers out there, trying to recast our beloved NX-01 main crew and a few secondary characters was truly enlightening.

The Rules of Engagement that were previously established in To The Journey and Meta Treks required us to cast our choices very specifically. We had to find actors, not impressionists, who embodied both the physical and spiritual attributes of their television counterparts. The best example of this is how Karl Urban so brilliantly re-interpreted Dr. McCoy his 2009 and 2013 performances. So please join us in The Conference Room and maybe you will create a list of your very own that you can share with us via e-mail, voicemail or on The Babel Conference. Enjoy!

Warp Five 80: The Name is Cole...Amanda Cole

MACO Corporal Amanda Cole.

In Season Three of Enterprise, the crew dynamic of the NX-01 was “enhanced" in a way that we had 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. In terms of the series, this infusion of secondary characters gave the audience an entirely new cast of faces and personalities to enjoy and explore! 

In this episode of Warp Five, Team Conference Room continues our research into the MACOs, with an in-depth look at Corporal Amanda Cole, played by actress Noa Tishby. Cole was seen in only a few minutes of the Season Three episode Harbinger, as Trip's new romantic interest and was the catalyst for sparking jealousy in T'Pol; a clear sign of her increasing emotional instability as the mission pressed further into the Delphic Expanse. Please join us as we discuss Amanda Cole's (albeit brief) role on Harbinger and her future potential for the series.
