Warp Five 1: Seeing It All for the First Time / by Trek fm

Launching Enterprise.

When talk began about the series to follow Voyager, there was plenty of speculation to go around. The most common theories involved an Excelsior series starring George Takei and one set at Starfleet Academy. When it came down from the studio that we would be getting a prequel, the fan base was divided—and it remains so to this day. Enterprise is without a doubt the most unique Star Trek series and the most maligned, yet it’s a hidden gem that many fans are finally discovering for the first time.

In this, the premiere episode of Trek.fm’s dedicated Enterprise show, hosts Christopher Jones and Kate Walsh are joined by Associate Producer Dave Rossi to discuss the creation and launch of the show, our expectations as fans going in, what the creative team wanted to achieve, and what the studio hoped for. We also look at Enterprise both as a TOS prequel and as a general Star Trek prequel, and pick a few of our favourite aspects of the show.
