Warp Five 12: The Power to Manipulate / by Trek fm

The Sphere Builders.

They were a fascinating yet mysterious element of the Xindi Arc, thrown into the third season of Enterprise too late to be fleshed out yet early enough to have an impact on the battle for Earth's future. In this episode of Warp Five hosts Christopher Jones and Kate Walsh discuss these quasi-Founder, quasi-Prophet aliens from another realm who played the Xindi for their own purposes. Why were they transforming our space? What was their ultimate goal? And how could they have been better utilized for storytelling? These are all questions we attempt to answer as we explore the realm of the Sphere Builders.
