“Singularity” (ENT) with Manu Saadia


Manu Saadia, author of the forthcoming book Trekonomics, joins Scott to discuss Singularity (ENT S2E9). The economics of the Star Trek universe are discussed, as is why so many Enterprise episodes feature scenes in the bathroom, the merits of T’Pal, and whether or not Capt. Archer is a good captain (spoiler: he isn’t).

Apologies for some of the audio in this episode, it would seem Skype isn’t a fan of Enterprise.

Next on Random Trek: TOS’s Mirror, Mirror.
