Thanks for the podcast and as ever a great listen.

Glad to hear that Enterprise might be getting some love in forthcoming LDS. I re-watched the show a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. I’ve always been puzzled as to why it barely gets a mention in Star Trek circles even websites that I love visiting such as this one. For example when I think of all the podcasts (mainly from the shuttle pod crew) in which there has been season by season analysis of TNG, Voyager, the feature films etc., I can’t think of a single dedicated podcast which discusses Enterprise. Perhaps someone someday will explain it to me or is it just not considered to be very good?

Thanks, Scott! I don’t know about anyone else, but honestly, I do struggle with Enterprise sometimes. It was a big step back for women, I felt, and it really dragged sometimes, especially (for me) when they got into the Xindi thing. They did a great job with some things (Andorians) but it’s not a show I rewatch much. My favorite episodes are about Trip or Phlox. (Trip getting pregnant is my #1.)

I’ve been thinking about giving it a re-watch. I haven’t seen it in years. I did love S4. S1-S3 didnt work for me except for a few gems. With the passing of the great Manny Coto, I’m going to revisit it once I finish my re-watch of DS9 to see if my opinion has changed. I was a fan of Manny’s work on that show.

Mike has talked about wanting to being T’Pol into LD before. She was the best part about Enterprise (och which was overall quite well) so I’m not averse to it. However, I would prefer her to star in SNW. I imagine her and Spock bonding over working with humans.

Thanks for the shout out, guys!
Great podcast, great article!
