    Have been binge watching the original Star Trek and Star Trek Enterprise recently. Enjoyed them the first time around and enjoying them now

    BUT, the question is, how is that all the alien species they contact all speak English?

    They obviously have satellite TV and their kids watch Sesame Street.

    We'll all be speaking Romulan in 50 years unless this planet gets its act together.

    There's something about the original Star Trek that's just fun to watch.

    Same reason all the Germans in Hogan’s Heroes speak English.

    You watched Enterprise, and still have this question? It is covered in the first season. The crew has a language specialist onboard to help figure out/teach the Universal Translator unknown languages.

    Never watched Enterprise when it first-aired. But we binged everything ST a few years ago. Enterprise was the only one I missed when it was over.

    I absolutely loved that series. The network, however, didn't support it. IMO, best of the bunch...yes, even better
    than the original. :scared003:

    What a cast they had in the original series! They really worked quite well together. I was very disappointed when the series was cancelled, but it’s been in reruns and on Netflix for years. I watch it often, but my wife thinks I’m nuts. Fun stuff to watch.
