Warp Five: A Star Trek Enterprise Podcast

Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens Interview.

Season four of Star Trek: Enterprise saw many changes to the creative team working on the show. One addition to the writing staff of the show was Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. No stranger to Star Trek or television writing, the Reeves-Stevens brought their wealth of Trek knowledge and Star Trek novel writing experience to the team. Drawing on their experience, fans of the show were treated to what is considered by many to be the best season of the shows run, due in large part to the many nods to established Star Trek continuity.

In this episode of Warp Five, host Brandon-Shea Mutala interviews the writing duo of Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens to discuss their vast career. We discuss writing books, television, Batman: The Animated Series, Aliens Ate My Homework, William Shatner, Disney, Canadian bears, and much more. 

Special thanks to our friends at the Spocklight Podcast for putting us in touch with our guests.

First Time Star Trek: Enterprise Viewer: Season 3.

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 and Patrick Devlin are joined by Kerry Purvis to talk about her experience watching season three of Enterprise for the first time. We discuss Kerry's initial first impressions, favorite moments, Degra's arc, stand out episodes, and her favorite character moments.
