Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

Comparing "Judgement" and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. 
 
There are many episodes of Star Trek that have a sense of familiarity. With well over 700 episodes an films, its understandable when a writer comes up with a story that is similar to one we have seen before. However, when a writer tells a story that is meant to be an homage to a previous tale, will fans consider it to be a case of too much fan service?


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandi Jackola, Patrick Devlin, and Brandon-Shea Mutala are joined by Zach Moore of Standard Orbit to compare and contrast the Enterprise episode "Judgement" with the film Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. We also discuss the pronunciations of "Combs," Martok, Duras, and leisurely escapes.

A Conversation With Dave Rossi.
 
Life often takes people down unexpected avenues. Case in point: Dave Rossi. He never intended to end up in Hollywood, working on his most favorite franchise, on the series with which he grew up. Not only did he spearhead the remastering of TOS, but worked for fourteen years straight on every incarnation of Star Trek from The Next Generation to Enterprise.


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Patrick Devlin, and Brandi Jackola speak with Mr. Rossi on his Star Trek work and beyond. They discuss teaching Star Trek to neighborhood kids, favorite projects, continuity problems in Enterprise, and Dave's love of Superman. Brandon-Shea may finally find someone else who appreciates his second-favorite Star Trek episode, and perhaps they'll all swing by Deneb IV on their way to the Delphic Expanse to pick up The Backstreet Boys.

Vulcans and the Path to Discovery. 
 
Vulcans have been a part of Star Trek since the first episode of the original series. Viewers spent decades with this race, feeling that they understood what Vulcans represent, and how they behave. Then Star Trek: Enterprise came along and showed us a different side of the Vulcans - a side which is also represented in Star Trek: Discovery.


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Patrick Devlin, and Brandi Jackola are joined by special guest Nicolas Anastassiou. They discuss the similarities of the Vulcans in Enterprise and Discovery, ponder first impressions and perceptions versus fact, ruminate on whether Vulcans are without emotion, and determine if a future episode of the podcast will be The Search for Patrick.

Warp Five Role Playing Game.
 
While all Star Trek series have focused on a main set of characters, every once in a while an episode would come along and show the viewers the lower decks of the ship, and what some of the less important crew members would be doing. Enterprise never got the chance to do this, until now... 


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandi Jackola, Patrick Devlin, and Brandon-Shea Mutala are joined by Dave Jackola of The Dark Corner Podcast for an RPG adventure set in the second season of Enterprise. Your hosts get to navigate the ship, evade energy beams, and use their tricorders to scan key lime pie.
