Re: Story Arcs vs. Episodic Stories in ENT
I once read that Braga wanted to do the first season much like they way the episode "First Flight" turned out, but the network said no -- too bad, I think that might have been an intriguing way to show the genesis and application of the warp-five program.
Yeah, Star Trek's version of "The Right Stuff" would've been an interesting change of pace.
