Every society goes through stages of evolution, often propelled by religion. Such change is not always welcome and is rarely easily accepted. There will always be those who feel they are losing power and try to silence those who bring new knowledge to light. But the change eventually becomes the norm—at least until others with more knowledge begin the cycle again. And this can happen on any world, as we see in fourth season of Enterprise in what has come to be known as The Vulcan Trilogy.
In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin and Brandi Jackola welcome Brandon-Shea Mutala of Melodic Treks and NX-01 relief tactical officer Jim Moorhouse to discuss “The Forge,” “Awakening,” and “Kir'Shara.” We explore technological inconsistencies, fan service done right, Shran Solo, and how this three-parter made Star Trek: The Animated Series canon.
