In most stories, mothers are generally represented in a positive light, but what about fathers? In many stories, fathers are presented as stern, authority figures that generally lack displays of emotion. Many characters have strained relations ships with their fathers, and there are frequently cases of estrangement betweent fathers and their children. Standing out from the crowd, Star Trek: Enterprise is rich with examples of positive father representations, from Hoshi Sato's imagined father in Vanishing Point, to the legacy of Henry Archer weaving throughout his son's life, and through the four seasons of the series. These fathers show, each in their own way, that their families are very important to them, even if all we see is their progeny. We also see how their influence has left a positive impact on the characters we love.

In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin, Brandi Jackola, and Brandon-Shea Mutala discuss the fathers of Star Trek: Enterprise and how they were represented on screen. We also discuss Peppa Pig, advice, raising kids, emotions, and choices. We also take a moment to reflect on our own fathers, and how they have impacted our lives.
