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

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 »

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.
