Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

NX-01 Movie Night: Bride of Frankenstein.
 

Friendship and fellowship is important for people's general health and well-being. All of the Star Trek series have shown some sort of interaction between the members of its crew on screen in varying ways. The Next Generation had poker, Deep Space Nine had Vic's lounge, Voyager had Sandrine's and the resort program, and Enterprise had movie night. Since the invention of home video releases of films, many fans of movies have participated in an event know as "Movie Night!" People gather together in a group, watch a movie, and then discuss the film in a casual conversation. Sometimes they even go out for a slice of pie while they discuss. 

 

In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala and Brandi Jackola discuss the sequel to the 1931 film Frankenstein starring Boris Karloff from 1935, Bride of Frankenstein. We also discuss Ernest, Girl Guides, and Godfather Part II.

Season Four Retrospective Part 4. 
  
The final season of Star Trek: Enterprise is brimming with story arcs spanning two or more episodes. However, not every episode of season four was part of an arc. There were a few standalone episodes mixed in, and two of them deal with different parts of Star Trek history, both before and after the time in which Enterprise is set - one dipping into the history of the transporter, the other showing us a different facet of an alien race introduced in the original series. 


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Patrick Devlin, and Brandi Jackola examine the season four episodes "Daedalus" and "Observer Effect". They discuss foreshadowing, head canon, T'Pol's journey, chess, the uniqueness of humans, needle violence, trickle-down effects, and how Brandi's really good at knocking what they say down to things people can understand.

Looking Back.
 
After Floyd Dorsey's much lamented retirement from Warp Five, remaining host Brandon-Shea Mutala cast his net to capture another co-host, catching not one, but two, in the process. Forty-one episodes and close to a year later (or ten years in podcasting measurement), for better or worse, in sickness and in health, they are still teaming up to discuss all things Star Trek: Enterprise. As 2018 winds down, the hosts gather 'round the microphones to look back on what they've done in their time on the podcast.


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Patrick Devlin, and Brandi Jackola recap their nine months of podcasting together. They discuss fear of falling, Brandi's nightmare Melodic Treks episode, Storm Fart, getting back into movie episodes, favorite podcast titles, Enterprise dads, great guests, falling asleep during movies, what short shrift actually means, and where they want to go from here.

"These Are the Voyages..." Rewrite Part 2.
 
Though Rick Berman described the series finale of Star Trek: Enterprise as a "valentine to the fans", many viewers didn't see it as such. To this day, few fans of the series feel that it was a fitting end to the series, and most think the cast deserved better than appearing only as holograms. But was there anything salvageable in the episode? Could it be, for lack of a better word, fixed?


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Brandi Jackola, and special guest Bruce Gibson from Literary Treks, in an attempt to finish their rewrite for "These Are the Voyages...". They discuss Spock on the "D," the Battle of Bajor, The Guardians of the Galaxy, and weather or not this is the greatest episode of Star Trek ever!
