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

Goofs

Shortly after departure, Captain Archer states they will arrive at Kronos is ~80 hours. He later states they are traveling at 30 million km/s. That is 100x the speed of light, which means they would be traveling at just above warp 4.6, though he was likely stating an approximation, and they were actually traveling slightly slower. However, even at 30 million km/s, they would only travel ~0.91 light-years in 80 hours, which wouldn't even get them to our nearest star, Alpha Centauri (4.367 light-years away). It would take 16 days just to get there at that speed. See more »

Gene Roddenberry Would Be Proud
12 June 2004 | by (Palm Springs, California) – See all my reviews

"Broken Bow" takes us back to where it all began. Set 150 years in our future and 100 years before Kirk, Spock and McCoy. This installment of the "Star Trek" franchise, is in my opinion the first series since "TOS" to recapture the feelings of wonder, danger and excitement of "Going Where No Man Has Gone Before". Scott Bakula is perfectly cast as Jonathan Archer, the first Captain of the first "Star Ship Enterprise". He and the entire cast truly show a true reverence for the Star Trek legacy. John Billingsley is Brilliant as the alien Dr. Phlox, and Jolene Blalock is totally luscious as the tempting but logical Vulcan science officer T'Pol. Broken Bow is in my opinion the best premier episode of any of the Treks, and I believe Gene Roddenberry would surely be proud.
