Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

Jul 19, 2022

“Marauders” 20th-anniversary reflections.

Archer continues setting the stage for centuries of conflict between the Federation and the Klingon Empire when he stands up for the inhabitants of a mining colony. But, to be fair, how hard is it to come into conflict with Klingons? Deuterium aside, the captain doesn’t like bullies, not on Earth and not here—on whatever planet this is. The crew of the Enterprise puts Klingon Commander Korok—not nearly as cute as his Zelda namesake—in his place when they teach the colonists how to defend themselves.

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 continue Season 2 with “Marauders” as we discuss how it mirrors its Akira Kurosawa inspiration, Seven Samurai, grows the relationship between Archer and T’Pol, and gets the full crew involved.
