Warp Five 62: A Guide for "Baby" Boomers! / by Norman Lao

A Season One Guide for "Baby" Boomers.

Thanks to the ever increasing popularity of Star Trek on Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, CBS.com and more - being able to have online access to almost every Star Trek series has become increasingly easier and more convenient over the last decade. In reading many of our fan's comments on The Babel Conference, our dedicated Trek.Fm listener's page on Facebook, more and more fans are now discovering Enterprise for the very first time, or even more importantly - returning to Enterprise after what many believe was the overall demise of Star Trek - •series fatigue.•

In order to help these new fans, or "Baby" Boomers, navigate through the peaks and valleys of Enterprise Season One, Norman C. Lao and his guests in the Decon Chamber have each chosen two different episodes that they feel best represent the very pioneering and exploratory spirit of this series, how this season is relevant to the overall canon of Star Trek and how there is still a remarkable amount of potential that this series has to offer a newcomer OR even perhaps a new Star Trek fan. Let's begin our viewing voyage for 2015!
