Warp Five 10: A Victim of His Own Work

The Augment Arc.

The Eugenics Wars are one of those events from Star Trek history that we've learned very little about despite their extreme importance. During its fourth season, Enterprise revisited the Eugenics Wars and their aftermath in a three-part arc comprised of “Borderland,” “Cold Station 12,” and “The Augments.” In this episode of Warp Five hosts Christopher Jones and Kate Walsh discuss the trilogy, the brilliant performance by Brent Spiner as Dr. Arik Soong, how it plays into the great debate of genetic enhancement, why Malik is a poor man's Khan, and how the story excels in some areas while failing in others.
