Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

Enterprise Video Game.
  
The first official Star Trek game hearkens back to 1967, with a board game based on the original series. Since then, there have been various board games, card games, tabletop wargames, and role playing games. The first Star Trek video game was a text-based adventure written in BASIC, and released in 1971. There have been various others, both for PC and console, but never has there been a game specifically for Star Trek: Enterprise.


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin and Brandi Jackola build an Enterprise video game. We discuss current gen vs. 8-bit, where the game begins, what characters can be played, cutscenes, side quests, and downloadable content.

First Time Enterprise Viewer: Season One.
 
Most Star Trek fans have watched the episodes multiple times, and after more than fifty years of broadcasting, we are surprised when we meet someone that hasn't watched some of the episodes, or even hasn't watched any episodes in a series at all. Kerry Purvis has been a Star Trek fan since she was a small child, but somehow she passed over Enterprise during its first run, and has only recently begun her first watch of the show.


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Patrick Devlin, and Brandi Jackola are joined by first-time podcaster Kerry Purvis to talk about her experience watching season one of Enterprise for the first time. We discuss Kerry's Star Trek history, initial first impressions, favorite character, portrayal of the Vulcans, a Quantum Leap reunion, spoilers, and her hopes for the rest of the series.
