Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

T’Pol's Interaction With Humans.
 
The Vulcans are a species that has fascinated fans for over 50 years. Spock, Tuvok, Sarek, Saavik, and more have captivated our imaginations and provided us a way to look at our own humanity through an alien filter. Star Trek: Enterprise took this group of aliens and changed their portrayal, telling a whole new chapter in their history. With T’Pol being the first Vulcan to serve long term on a Starfleet vessel, we ask the question of how she reacted to serving with humans, and weather or not her attitude changed over the run of the show.


In this episode of Warp Five, Patrick Devlin and Brandon-Shea Mutala are joined by Karen Chuplis to discuss T’Pol and her relationship with humans during the run of Enterprise. We also discuss how important her family is to the Star Trek universe as a whole, her relationship with Archer and Trip, and instances outside of her comfort zone.

NX-01 Movie Night: Abbott and Costello Meet 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 Patrick Devlin and Brandon-Shea Mutala talk about Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, listed 56th on the list of American Film Institute's "100 Funniest American Movies" in 2007. We discuss the fine line between comedy and horror that is very well toed in this movie. Should the movie have been named for Frankenstein?
