Vulcans have been a part of Star Trek since the first episode of the original series. Viewers spent decades with this race, feeling that they understood what Vulcans represent, and how they behave. Then Star Trek: Enterprise came along and showed us a different side of the Vulcans - a side which is also represented in Star Trek: Discovery.

In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandon-Shea Mutala, Patrick Devlin, and Brandi Jackola are joined by special guest Nicolas Anastassiou. They discuss the similarities of the Vulcans in Enterprise and Discovery, ponder first impressions and perceptions versus fact, ruminate on whether Vulcans are without emotion, and determine if a future episode of the podcast will be The Search for Patrick.
