Enterprise Season One: The Early Missions.
Just how do you create a prequel to a universe as fleshed out as Star Trek? The challenge that faced the writers and producer's of Enterprise was not an easy one. The first season tried to lay the groundwork for Starfleet's very first outing into deep space and to place the Star Trek future must closer to us, to something that we could actually relate to. What worked? What didn't work? Was it the "prequel" that fans were expecting? In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Norman Lao and Will Nguyen are joined by Floyd Dorsey, Mike Morrison, and Jeffrey Harlan for an in-depth look at the very beginning of Enterprise, focusing on the first six episodes of Season One.
