Warp Five 2: An Extrapolation / by Trek fm

Brannon Braga Talks Enterprise.

He started his career with Star Trek as an intern on The Next Generation and went on to become one of the most influential creatives behind the evolution of the franchise, penning the classic “All Good Things…” as well as Generations and First Contact before moving on to Voyager. Brannon Braga is responsible for some of Star Trek’s most memorable voyages, and in 2000 he teamed up with Rick Berman to develop the most unique of the Star Trek series—a prequel called simply Enterprise. In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Christopher Jones and Kate Walsh are joined by Brannon to discuss the creation of Enterprise, the handling of the Vulcans, the challenge of writing a prequel, and we even learn about the original ending of the fan favourite “Dear Doctor.”
