Braga On Enterprise: The Good And The Bad

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

Brannon Braga spoke about his time working on Star Trek: Enterprise, including favorite and least favorite stories and the early demise of the series.

Star Trek was at its best when exploring current day issues in the futurist setting and Star Trek: Enterprise was no exception. “…the AIDS-metaphor episode with T’Pol was very strong,” said Braga. “It had to do with Vulcan mind melds, at that point in Vulcan history, being something that was considered taboo. To me, that’s an interesting exploration of Star Trek and also tells us something about people who are ostracized.”

Braga: Favorite Episodes And Seven Of Nine

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Brannon Braga worked on Star Trek beginning with Star Trek: The Next Generation as an intern, and the veteran writer and creator shared his memories, both good and bad, of his Star Trek work.

Star Trek: The Next Generation ended with All Good Things…, an episode of which Braga is proud and one which fans enjoyed as well. “I’m proud of that for a lot of reasons,” he said. “Top of the list, it was just a really great two-hour episode of TNG that fully explored the characters and the sentimentality of where they started, where they are and where they’re going. It had a great science-fiction premise. And it kind of achieved the impossible. I have no recollection of how Ron Moore and I did it, but it was a great ending to a great series. It didn’t disappoint.”

Braga On Lack Of Trek Gay Characters

Monday, January 24th, 2011

According to Brannon Braga, if a televised Star Trek show was being produced today, there would probably be a gay character in the show.

Braga, involved with three of the televised series and two Star Trek movies, explained why even though there were discussions on the matter, no gay character was included in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Voyager or Enterprise. “It was a shame for a lot of us that … I’m talking about the Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and there was a constant back and forth about well how do we portray the spectrum of sexuality. There were people who felt very strongly that we should be showing casually, you know, just two guys together in the background in Ten Forward.”

Braga: Darker Enterprise And Different Voyager Finale

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

Brannon Braga and Rick Berman had a different Star Trek: Enterprise in mind than what actually ended up airing, plus Braga says that if he could redo the Star Trek: Voyager finale, he would make a surprising change.

Had Berman and Braga had their way, fans would have seen some Earth-bound shows for Enterprise, especially in the beginning. “Rick Berman and I had a little bit more of a raw conception of Enterprise than maybe the studio was comfortable with,” explained Braga. “It was actually set on Earth for a while – the building of the first starship, kind of like J.J.’s. We wanted to do the launch of the first starship and take it maybe a little bit more retro, and we initially didn’t have the futuristic temporal cold war aspect of it.”
