Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

"These Are the Voyages..." Rewrite.
 
Though Rick Berman described the series finale of Star Trek: Enterprise as a "valentine to the fans", many viewers didn't see it as such. To this day, few fans of the series feel that it was a fitting end to the series, and most think the cast deserved better than appearing only as holograms. But was there anything salvageable in the episode? Could it be, for lack of a better word, fixed?


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Brandi Jackola, and special guest Bruce Gibson from Literary Treks, attempt to rewrite "These Are the Voyages...". They discuss losing the holodeck angle, prolonging the Romulan War, opposite Future Guy, the other Star Trek captains, and the Guardian of Forever.

Alternate Crew. 
  
When the NX-01 Enterprise was completed, Starfleet knew that the first warp five-capable ship needed a crew who were at the top of their respective fields. This new class of starship would be traveling to places previously unseen by human eyes, and developing new relationships (and, sometimes, rivalries) with new species. The crew had to be not only extremely capable, but also adaptable, as they literally did not know what they would find beyond the boundaries of the Sol system. And so, a question came to mind - would any crew members from other Star Trek series fit into these same positions on the NX-01?


In this episode of Warp Five hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Patrick Devlin, and Brandi Jackola reveal their other series picks for the NX-01 bridge crew. They discuss death glares, Captain Lorca's tribble, fitting in with season three, Voyagerprise, THE WOMEN!, engineering vs. science, and how with a different captain, movie night might turn into karaoke night.

Writers' Room.
  
Most Star Trek: Enterprise fans agree that the "Vulcan Trilogy" in season four is one of the best stories of the season, if not the series. There are, however, loose ends that some would like to have seen tied off. Did V'Las ever face a trial for his actions? Or did he escape to Romulus before judgment could be made and punishment carried out? 


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin and Brandi Jackola write a season five episode addressing the fate of the deposed Vulcan High Council Leader V'Las. They discuss secret missions, undercover agents, Chaltok 4, the return of the Romulan drone, Chekov's Klingons, and how Shran determines that good torture was wasted on the wrong Vulcan.

"Shockwave, Part II" Commentary.
 
After nearly four months of waiting. the season two premiere of Enterprise finally answered the burning questions of the cliffhanger season one finale, except for disclosing the identity of the future man from whom Silik has been receiving instructions. Though perhaps not as well-received as "Shockwave", part two does reach a satisfying conclusion to what happens to Archer, whether the crew of the NX-01 can make their rendezvous with the Vulcan ship before they are destroyed, and the fate of the Starfleet's program of exploration.


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala and Brandi Jackola present their commentary of "Shockwave, Part II". They discuss "Time Enough at Last", Random Guy, slashfic for everything, torture by Justin Bieber, whether Brandi drinks blood, Fremen Daniels, turning Soval into a four-letter word, and how Jim Moorhouse should be every Enterprise extra ever.
