Warp Five 31: A Sequel to Us / by Trek fm

TOS Impressions of Seasons 1 and 2.

When announced, the basic premise of Enterprise was a trip back to the 22nd century for a story that would set up The Original Series. In actuality, the first season of Enterprise delivered a weaker than anticipated connection to Kirk's time, and this continued in the second year. This is not a bad thing—it gave the show an identity of its own—but it did leave many long-time Trekkies scratching their head. So how would a died-in-the-wool TOS fan feel about Enterprise after coming into the series with certain expectations.

In this episode of Warp Five, we're joined by Standard Orbit co-host Drew Stewart to hear his take on Enterprise Seasons One and Two from a TOS perspective. How does a Kirk guy feel about Archer? How are the other characters received? What are Drew's favorite episodes and TOS connections from the first two seaons? And how would he have written the rest of the series beyond "Shockwave"? Join us for a trip from the 23rd century to the 22nd, with an unexpected sprinkling of X-Men.

Running Time: 55 minutes 52 seconds
