“Cold Front” 20th-anniversary reflections.
When the Enterprise encounters a freighter transporting a group of pilgrims, Archer sees the perfect opportunity for a little cultural exchange. But what first appears to be an enlightening religious experience turns deadly when the NX-01’s engines are sabotaged and an unlikely figure comes to the rescue. Things only get stranger from there when Crewman Daniels reveals that he is from 900 years in the future and charged with keeping an eye on factions fighting one another in a temporal cold war.
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 “Cold Front” and the Temporal Cold War storyline that was inserted to make the show feel more futuristic. Along the way, we discuss the Suliban, time travel, spirituality in Star Trek, movie night, and more.
