Tread Perilously concludes its celebration of Star Trek‘s 50th Anniversary with the last episode of any Star Trek series until 2017: the Star Trek: Enterprise finale, “These are the Voyages.”
Ten years after Enterprise NX-01 set out to seek new life forms and new civilizations, the ship is heading home to be decommissioned. But Captain Archer’s old Andorian pal Shran needs his help one last time before the formation of a coalition that will become the United Federation of Planets. Of course, that’s all ancient history to Commander William Riker of the late 24th Century’s U.S.S. Enterprise, who is watching a holodeck representation of Enterprise‘s final journey before making a fateful decision of his own.
Justin and Erik discuss the Star Trek‘s producer Rick Berman‘s need for Pioneer Chicken and his complete fatigue in running the franchise. They also get distracted by Remans, Ensign Hoshi, vampire Vulcans, and the unlikely heartthrob status of Connor Trinneer. They also suggest that the new series needs Andorians, Orion Liberated Women and some of the creatures from Star Trek: The Animated Series.
A Betazoid romance novel may also be discussed.
