Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

“Horizon” 20th-anniversary reflections

A change of course for the Enterprise takes the ship close to the ECS Horizon, the cargo vessel on which Travis Mayweather grew up—and that means family reunion time. But it’s a sad homecoming for Travis when he learns that his father passed away, and resentment bubbles to the surface between Travis and his brother, Paul, now captain of the ship. When aliens attack, the brothers must put their differences aside to survive. Meanwhile, aboard the NX-01, T’Pol must put her fear of movie night aside as she learns to better fraternize with her crewmates.

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 “Horizon” as we discuss  family dynamics, what could have been for Travis, Archer’s leadership, T’Pol's book club, and the unexpected connection between the Mayweather and Janeway families.
