Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

The Tholians With James Swallow. 
  
Star Trek has created many species in over 50 years of lore, but one of the most beloved and mysterious of them all has been the Tholians. Originally seen in the original series episode "The Tholian Web," this mysterious species was simply shown as a flicker of colors and angular shapes with an aggressive attitude and shrill voice. The Tholians have been mentioned a handful of times and only seen in three episodes, however this has caused them to capture our imaginations and fuel fan speculaton as to their origins and physical appearance.


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin and Brandon Shea-Mutala talk with New York Times best-selling author James Swallow about the Tholians. We discuss the Tholian Web, traits of the species, their description in the Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual, their government, other mentions, and a bit of their mentions in the extended literary universe.

NX-01 Movie Night: Son of Frankenstein.
 
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, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala and Patrick Devlin discuss the second sequel to the 1931 film Frankenstein starring Boris Karloff from 1939, Son of Frankenstein. We also discuss fan shade, PPE, Lugosi, and capital punishment.
