Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

May 22, 2022

“Shockwave, Part II” 20th-anniversary reflections.

Trapped in the 31st century, in a future where the Federation never existed, Captain Archer must work with Crewman Daniels to stop history from being changed. Meanwhile, the Suliban, led by Silik, commandeer the Enterprise and take the crew hostage. Using some nifty techniques he learned in high school and Archer's scavenging skills, Daniels creates a way for the captain to communicate backwards in time with his crew, warning them that they must stop Silik to keep the future on track. With the day once again saved, a final confrontation with Ambassador Soval and the Vulcans threatens to put the Warp Five program on hold. And T'Pol still doesn't believe in time travel.

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 kick off Season 2 with “Shockwave, Part II” as we explore a future in jeopardy, how portrayal of the future has changed over 20 years, the transformation of T'Pol, and how Jonathan Archer is so pivotal to the future of the Federation.
