It seems that reboots and revivals are still on the rise, even in connection with shows that were airing in the early 2000s. Charmed, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and Roswell, New Mexico are examples of such shows that have been remade with completely new actors cast in the roles, even though it seems not that long ago that the original versions of these shows were airing. And of course, we here at Warp Five began thinking about what it might look like if we recast Enterprise with current day actors.

In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin and Brandi Jackola share their top picks for the seven main characters' recast. We discuss gender swaps, Starfleet hair regulations, the correct pronunciation of katana, getting Doctor Doom right, chameleons, Cody Rhodes, and how it's not necessary to have Trek knowledge in order to be a good Trek actor.
