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

In his speech, Zefram Cochrane (James Cromwell) says, "...to go boldly where no man has gone before," thereby robbing tiresome individuals everywhere of the chance to pointlessly pontificate about split infinitives. (However, the series finale reinstated the "...to boldly go..." clause.) See more »

Goofs

In ST:DS9, it's made clear that entering warp within a star system can lead to disastrous consequences, and it therefore takes 3 hours to travel between the station and Bajor by shuttlecraft. In the DS9 episode "By Inferno's Light" and in "ST: The Motion Picture," warp was engaged within a star system (Bajor's and Earth's, respectively) at great risk. Yet in this episode they go to warp without any concern, starting at warp 4 and up to 4.5 as soon as they "clear Jupiter." See more »

The final frontier has a new beginning.
27 September 2001 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

The two hour series premiere of the latest Star Trek series has finally arrived and it rocks. The setting is the 22nd century, long before the adventures of The Original Series and after the first warp flight. The story beats out all previous Star Trek pilots and is one of the best Trek episodes in years. The premiere has Captain Archer leading the crew of the NX-01 Enterprise on a mission to return a Klingon to his people. On the way, the crew runs into a new race of aliens, that aren't exactly friendly. Saying anymore would spoil the fun.

The premiere is loaded with appealing characters, action, special effects and terrific acting, particularly from Scott Bakula. The pilot was a great start to new series. Looks like the franchise is getting back on track.
