A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
Enterprise is hit with a rather intense anomaly. Refusing to leave an injured T'Pol behind, Archer is struck by the anomaly, leaving his brain infected with parasites, preventing him from making any ...
The Borg travel back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochrane makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
The year is 2151. Earth has spent the last 88 years since learning how to travel faster than the speed of light studying under the wisdom of their alien ally called the 'Vulcans'. Now, the first crew of human explorers sets out into deep space on a ship called the 'Enterprise' to see what is beyond our solar system.
Because the show is one hundred years before Kirk, some old technology has reappeared: - flip-open communicators - manual sliders on the transporter - the science station viewfinder - Most of the sound effects for the Enterprise come from the original Star Trek (1966) - including all the bridge sounds, doors, communicator chirps, and most of the panel sounds. Instead of shields, the Enterprise has polarized hull plating, and instead of hand-held phasers, the crew are introduced to phase pistols. There are no photon torpedoes, simply torpedoes (until the start of season three). The transporter has only recently been approved for transporting bio-matter (people), and no one on the crew trusts it. It has four docking doors for shuttlepods. The design of 22nd century Enterprise NX-01 bears a striking resemblance to the 24th century Akira Class starship, first introduced in Star Trek: First Contact (1996). Enterprise carries a designation of NX-01 which, according to established canon, indicates a prototype starship. It also indicates the first Starfleet starship to use this naming convention. Enterprise is the first Starfleet vessel to use the new warp 5 engine developed by Zefram Cochran and Jonathan Archer's father, Henry. See more »
Whenever the video signal is being lost, instead of pixelating, as a digital signal would, the picture shows analog "snow," which would be unheard of by that era. See more »
How long have you been romantically involved with my daughter?
[off, Trip surprised face]
How long have you been attracted to her?
Since our first argument, I felt the chemistry between us. But, I had a feeling T'Pol wasn't going to mention it.
She didn't. I'm her mother.

Before the opening credits of the episode "Stigma" (original airdate 5 February 2003) a tribute to the crew of the space shuttle Columbia (deceased 1 February 2003) states "To the crew of the space shuttle Columbia, you continue to be our inspiration." See more »
The music tracks from the following scenes were scored differently from internet clips released a few days before the premiere and the final version:
I have mixed feelings about this show. It probably has contained some of the best and definitely a lot of the worst Trek episodes ever. It was meant to re-invent Trek but all it did was re-use old plot devices. The best thing they ever did was replace Berman, because he had been working on the franchise too long. Trek needs new blood, and for the 4th season they finally got it. But of course it came too late and now the show has been cancelled after it just started to find its footing.
Contrary to some other comments I've seen, Enterprise did NOT use its cast to its fullest potential. Mayweather has been virtually ignored since the first and second seasons (he wasn't even in most of the 3rd season episodes) and when he has been around lately it has only been to lift heavy things or hit something. Reed was just starting to get some good stuff this season. Enterprise had a wonderful opportunity to connect every Trek series together and revitalize the franchise but all it did (and most people believe this) was bury it. Despite Enterprise's accomplishments, its failures reign supreme. As much as I love Trek, it needs a rest. Maybe after a few years it will be brought back by people who have new ideas to bring to it. Then, hopefully, we will truly go where no one has gone before.
