As a prequel series, Enterprise promised to show us how humans would react to truly alien encounters. Trip certainly experienced one when he left the ship on a simple mission to help some aliens fix their engines, but came back with a baby. Or at least a wristnipple. In this episode of Warp Five we bring you a replay of a past Ready Room discussion with Enterprise associate producer Dave Rossi in which we discuss “Unexpected,” how it gives us a rare glimpse of a truly alien environment, introduces holodeck and replicator technology, the first hostile encounter between human and Klingon ships, and more.
