Trek Geeks #236: The Augments Arc


Season 4 of Star Trek: Enterprise had several small, multi-episode arcs which helped extend the story telling and the characters. This week, we look at the first of those arcs which saw the return of a legendary Trek actor!

In 2004, Brent Spiner returned to Star Trek on television to portray one of the ancestors of Data’s creator, Arik Soong, who was pretty big on genetic engineering and it looks like his “kids”–the augments he’d raised from embryos–are on the verge of starting a war between Earth and the Klingons.

It’s The Augments Arc this week on the Flagship of the Trek Geeks Podcast Network!
