“Breaking the Ice” 20th-anniversary reflections
When the Enterprise takes a detour to investigate a comet, a series of trials put trust to the test. Things get frosty as Vulcan–human animosity and suspicion once again come to the surface aboard the NX-01 while Malcolm and Travis build a snowman on the comet's surface. There lots of ice to break in this episode.
In this episode of Warp Five, hosts C Bryan Jones and Matthew Rushing continue our 20th-anniversary retrospective that takes you through all of Star Trek: Enterprise, one episode at a time. In this installment, we explore “Breaking the Ice” and discuss the test of trust between T’Pol and her human crewmates as well as how her conversations with Trip foreshadow the romance that is to come. We also talk about the price of pride—and how it impacts both Vulcan and human sides of the story—as well as the great fun that is letters from students and the deliciousness that is pecan pie.
