Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

Season Four Retrospective Part 5. 
  
An overarching theme for season four of Star Trek: Enterprise was the planting of the seeds of the Federation. The 22nd century showed us a quadrant of space in turmoil, with alien races at each others throats, and humanity portrayed as the pillar of reason and diplomacy in the foundation of both Starfleet and the Federation. We also see Archer grow into the future leader he was destined to be.


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin and Brandon-Shea Mutala continue their season four retrospective, looking at the episodes "Babel One," "United," and "The Aenar." We discuss Trip and T'Pol, cheating, Romulans, and much more.

Say Something Nice: Season One. 
  
Every Star Trek series has episodes that are beloved, and thus, they are frequent topics of discussion with fans. Contrariwise, the episodes that end up on the bottom of lists for rankings often get forgotten or skipped. However, the fans that hosts this podcast believe that there is always something to enjoy in every episode of Star Trek. Too often we tend to dwell on the negative aspects of these episodes. In a new series of podcasts, we go back to season one and say something nice about three episodes we did not especially like. 


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin and Brandon-Shea Mutala take a look back at season one of Enterprise and find something nice to say about episodes that aren't necessarily fan favorites, or episodes that they enjoy to watch. We discuss pregnancies, vacations, and away teams. Also, we have a special announcement from Brandi Jackola.

Comparing "Identity Crisis" and "Extinction." 
  
You can call it an homage, call it inspired by, or even call it a coincidence, but, after more than 750 episodes of Star Trek, every once in a while you come across a story that seems vaguely familiar to you. Star Trek fans love to compare and contrast these stories to determine which was done better.


In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin and Brandi Jackola pit the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Identity Crisis" against Star Trek: Enterprise's "Extinction". We discuss transmission of viruses, primal vs. intelligent, LeVar Burton, bloodthirsty hunting parties, point of view, and the theme of lifeforms taking over other lifeforms.
