One method of storytelling that the producers of Enterprise wanted to utilize was continuity throughout the episodes. Their desire was that actions in one episode would have ramifications in the next. One example was the damage that the NX-01 received during the episode "Mine Field." This begged the question: How would they repair their ship when the crew was in the middle of nowhere with no support from Starfleet?

In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Floyd Dorsey and Brandon-Shea Mutala provide a watch along commentary for the second season episode "Dead Stop." We talk about Roxann Dawson as the voice of the computer on the alien station, her direction of the episode, as well as plot threads that would later be picked up in the post-finale novels.
