Alternate Outcomes of the Xindi Crisis.
Nearly one year after the Xindi weapon probe first cut through Florida, Captain Archer and the crew of the NX-01 prevailed in their fight to save humanity—and we never doubted that they would. But what if the Xindi Crisis had turned out differently? We caught a glimpse of one other possible future in "Twilight," and the Xindi-Reptilians attempted to cut mankind off at the knees in 2004 on Detroit's "Carpenter Street." What if they had succeeded?
In this episode of Warp Five, Christopher Jones and Tristan Riddell discuss seven possible alternate outcomes and how they would have impacted Earth, our heroes, and the Star Trek universe as a whole.

The Sphere Builders.
They were a fascinating yet mysterious element of the Xindi Arc, thrown into the third season of Enterprise too late to be fleshed out yet early enough to have an impact on the battle for Earth's future. In this episode of Warp Five hosts Christopher Jones and Kate Walsh discuss these quasi-Founder, quasi-Prophet aliens from another realm who played the Xindi for their own purposes. Why were they transforming our space? What was their ultimate goal? And how could they have been better utilized for storytelling? These are all questions we attempt to answer as we explore the realm of the Sphere Builders.
