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 »

The prequel to Star Trek
27 September 2001 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

Just saw Enterprise: Broken Bow, and I would have to say that it is different. It's like one hundred years before Kirk and it's interesting to see how Starfleet gets to where we know it. The uniforms are different than the standard color coordination that Star Trek has used before. It's more of a more military look. The starship shots are all computer generated, on The Next Generation they used models, boy I miss that. Great way to start off a new show, especially when they used the transporter on a human for the first time. The show looks to be promising from this pilot.
