The elephant in the room is finally discussed, as Kris Hill and Kyle West tackle “Faith of the Heart,” and the rest of the music that was used across the four seasons of Star Trek: Enterprise.

In this episode, Kris Hill and Kyle West discuss Trip’s actions in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode Cogenitor. Was he right to interfere, or was he showing complete ignorance throughout the whole episode? Perhaps more importantly, did the writing of the episode have its own issues, with how it discussed the Cogenitor’s gender? Following that, they discuss the much wider issues of gender and equality in today’s world, and whether the future depicted by Star Trek is even attainable.
In this episode, Kris Hill and Kyle West are joined by hugely popular podcaster, and Star Trek: The Next Generation super fan, Amy Nelson. Join them in the 22nd century (or is that the 24th century?!), as they break apart the last-ever episode of Star Trek: Enterprise. 15 years after it first aired, These Are The Voyages is still a hugely controversial episode. Our podcast crew discuss the reasons why that might be the case, and whether it is justified, as they engage in an in-depth discussion about what would be the last Star Trek television episode to air for 12 years, following its release.
