There are many episodes of Star Trek that have a sense of familiarity. With well over 700 episodes an films, its understandable when a writer comes up with a story that is similar to one we have seen before. However, when a writer tells a story that is meant to be an homage to a previous tale, will fans consider it to be a case of too much fan service?

In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Brandi Jackola, Patrick Devlin, and Brandon-Shea Mutala are joined by Zach Moore of Standard Orbit to compare and contrast the Enterprise episode "Judgement" with the film Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. We also discuss the pronunciations of "Combs," Martok, Duras, and leisurely escapes.
