Storyline

In the mid-22nd century, the Earth ship Enterprise is launched under the command of Captain Jonathan Archer. When the crew rescues an alien from a crashed spaceship, Earth gets its first look at the alien's race - the Klingons. Archer and his crew must walk a fine line as they attempt to communicate with the Klingon pilot, whose language is completely unknown, and whose homeworld wants him back. Is this the beginning of friendship...or interstellar war? Written by Brian Barjenbruch

Trivia

Trip and Archer's first conversation describes Warp 4.5 as "Neptune and back in six minutes." This would make Warp 4.5 roughly 82 times the speed of light and allow travel at approximately one light-year every four days. See more »

Goofs

Captain Archer mentions about a "7 foot" Klingon would be hard to miss on Rigel 10. In Star Trek, the metric system is used, therefore his height would be referenced in meters and not feet. See more »

Commercial disaster
27 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

The basic premise of this story was exciting for fans of the Star Trek genre, the first tentative mission into intergalactic space by Star Fleet. Sadly, UPN chopped this up so badly with commercials it was difficult to follow the story line. In the last hour of this two-hour movie it seemed like I was watching a repeating pattern of 5 minutes programming followed by five minutes of commercials. I understand commercials pay the bills but this was just too much. If the weekly episode follow this pattern, I'll be tuning out.
