“Fallen Hero” 20th-anniversary reflections.
T'Pol's plans to help her human crewmates relieve stress are interrupted when the Enterprise is ordered to pick up Vulcan Ambassador V'Lar from the planet Mazar (a convenient rhyme) after she is accused of criminal misconduct. Once aboard the NX-01, V'Lar surprises everyone—particularly T'Pol—with her friendly behavior and finds an unexpected ally in Captain Archer.
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 “Fallen Hero” and how the story brings us an unexpected take on Vulcans and an ambassador who we wish we'd seen more of. We also discuss the realities of life in deep space, the evolving nature of T'Pol's character, and why picking the right Hawaiian shirt is a must if you want to make the most of your time on Risa.
