Horror on Enterprise.
Star Trek has a great tradition of taking classic elements of horror and putting a spine-tingling, futuristic twist on them. The Original Series did this especially well, whether riffing on vampires in “The Man Trap,” possession in “The Lights of Zetar,” or even Jack the Ripper in “Wolf In the Fold.” As a prequel to TOS, Enterprise frequently dipped into horror as well—no doubt thanks to a fondness for the genre in series creator Brannon Braga. In this episode of Warp Five hosts Christopher Jones and Kate Walsh discuss seven specific episodes of Enterprise that take classic elements of horror and put our crew through the frightening realities of exploring deep space.
