Debriefing Jeffrey. We treat co-host Jeffrey Harlan to a Chef’s buffet of topics before sending him off to school in a shuttlepod of his own.
Future Tense Commentary. How can a ship be bigger on the inside than on the outside? Also, why are the Suliban and Tholians so interested in it? Find out as we take you through this second-season time-travel story.
Warp Five Writer‘s Room 2. What if Star Trek: Enterprise hadn‘t ended after four seasons? We present an alternate finale to season four that could have changed the course of the series and set up a very interesting beginning to season five.
Enterprise Season Two, Part One. Often overshadowed, the NX-01's sophomore outing delivers excellent episodes that address continuity and topics that stretch across all of the Star Trek series. We give season two the credit it deserves.
Reconciling Enterprise Inconsistencies. Does the NX-01's tech level bother you? Is a cloaked Romulan ship in the 22nd century sacrilege? Tommy Kraft joins us to explore in-universe explanations that make Enterprise more palatable.
