Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast
"Bound" Commentary.
 
The Orion slave girl is an image that has been associated with Star Trek since we first saw one in the episode "The Menagerie Part II." While a sexual slave is not a politically correct type of character, the writers of Star Trek: Enterprise tried to ret-con some explanations for this alien species in the fourth season of the show. Did they succeed?

In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Floyd Dorsey and Brandon-Shea Mutala provide a watch along commentary for the episode "Bound" from season four of Star Trek: Enterprise. We also discuss cat-fish, listener feedback, and weather or not we feel the ret-con of the Orions worked.

Movie Night - For Whom the Bell Tolls
 
Friendship and fellowship is important for people's general health and well-being. All of the Star Trek series have shown some sort of interaction between the members of its crew on screen in varying ways. The Next Generation had poker, Deep Space Nine had Vic's lounge, Voyager had Sandrine's and the resort program, and Enterprise had movie night. Since the invention of home video releases of films, many fans of movies have participated in an event know as "Movie Night!" People gather together in a group, watch a movie, and then discuss the film in a casual conversation. Sometimes they even go out for a slice of pie while they discuss.

In this episode of Warp Five, host Brandon-Shea Mutala is joined by Mike Schindler to discuss the first film mentioned as having been watched during movie night on the NX-01: For Whom the Bell Tolls. We talk about the plot, the characters, the actors, white-washing, and whether or not the film still holds up. We even discuss Charleton Heston portraying a Mexican. Stay tuned to the very end to find out when our second movie night will be!

Jim Moorhouse Interview. 
  
Star Trek fans have dreamed about living the fantastical lives of the characters that they have come to love. They dream about visiting new worlds, encountering new life, traveling faster than the speed of light, and ... firing the torpedoes? For one fan, visiting the sets of the Enterprise and walking the halls of that ship became a reality for him when he won an online contest that awarded him the prize of a walk on role for a season four episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.
In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Floyd Dorsey and Brandon-Shea Mutala are joined by Jim Moorhouse, know as EnterpriseExtra on twitter, for a conversation about what it is like to live out one of your dream. We discuss what was involved in a day on the set as an extra for a television production. We also talk about Roxanne Dawson's directing, firing torpedoes, walking the sets, and doing the 'shake.'
