Did You Know?

Vaughn Armstrong, a longtime Trek actor, appears here as a human for the first time, bringing his total Trek appearances to eleven - as 9 different characters, and 7 different species (human, Cardassian, Klingon, Romulan, Borg, Vidiian, Hirogen).See more »
Continuity: 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 Foolish Mission, 18 October 2007
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In 2151, in Broken Bow, Oklahoma, a farmer shoots the Klingon Klaang with his plasma rifle after the explosion of a methane store in his farm and the Klingon is sent to the Starfleet Hospital. The Vulcan ambassador Soval proposes to unplug the life support system and bring the corpse of Klaang to his warrior empire in planet Kronos with honor. However, Captain Jonathan Archer proposes to go with the Enterprise in her first voyage and bring back Klaang alive to his home planet. Jonathan invites Ensign Hoshi Sato and Dr. Phlox, who is treating Klaang, to complete his crew, and the Vulcan Sub-Commander T'Pol is assigned to participate in the dangerous first mission of Enterprise. When the equipment of the starship is shut-down, Klaang is kidnapped by Sulibans after a shooting in the hospital. After the autopsy of the Suliban killed in the shooting, Captain Archer is informed by Dr. Phlox that the alien was actually a mutant, altered in a sophisticated genetic engineering process. T'Pol modifies the sensors of the Enterprise to track the Suliban spacecraft until she reaches planet Riger X. They investigate and disclose that Klaang was a courier, bringing an important message about the Temporal Cold War from the Suliban Sarin to the leaders of the Klingons in Kronos.

In spite of being a huge fan of Star Trek, I have not followed the episodes of "Enterprise" on cable television. I have decided to buy the DVD box of the First Season and this first episode surprised me. The adventure of the first Enterprise, Captain Jonathan Archer, the gorgeous T'Pol, Reed, Mayweather, Dr. Phlox, Hoshi and Trip is excellent, at least in this pilot. I have noted in IMDb that this episode is actually divides in two parts, but on DVD they are just one, therefore my review is valid for both. I did not like the music score theme, which I found very annoying, but this was an exception in this great show. My vote is nine.
