The cancellation of Star Trek: Enterprise left a void in the franchise for the first time in nearly two decades. With the future uncertain, Dave Rossi, Doug Mirabello and Jose Munoz joined forces to develop an animated series entitled Star Trek: Final Frontier. Unfortunately, the series became a victim of the split between Paramount and CBS.

In this episode of Stage Nine, John and Mike are joined by Final Frontier co-creator and Enterprise producer Dave Rossi to take a closer look at the planned series. We discuss Dave's time working on Star Trek, the development of the pitch, and break down what the series would have been. In News, John and Mike discuss Rihanna's new song, Sledgehammer, off of the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack.
