The Edge : P4: The P Word

Enterprise Fan Response.   The announcement that the fourth Star Trek spinoff, Enterprise, would be a prequel to the voyages of Kirk and Spock was met with skepticism by many fans. Set in the 22nd century, a hundred years before The Original Series, the show invited viewers to experience the birth of the Federation, the development of the technology we had come to know and love, and how humans felt when they first started beaming themselves around. In this episode of Postcards from The Edge, host Amy Nelson is joined by Dan Gunther of Literary Treks to discuss the fan response to the premiere of Enterprise. Were there worries that the show might violate canon? Could it be considered an alternate timeline? Did the casting of Scott Bakula as Captain Jonathan Archer have Quantum Leap fans itching to watch? And what about that theme song? It has lyrics! Listen to find out what fans had to say about these topics and more. Chapters Intro (00:01:05)  Initial Thoughts (00:03:57)&nbsp
