Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Filming of the pilot episode featured a scene in which Jolene Blalock, as T'Pol, bared her navel. This required removal of Blalock's navel piercing ring. According to interviews given by Blalock, the ring proved very difficult to remove, and forced Blalock (in full Vulcan make-up) to visit a nearby tattoo-body piercing shop to have it removed.

In Capt. Archer's cabin, there is a photo on the wall of a Pan American World Airways Boeing 314 Clipper. Gene Roddenberry was, at one time a pilot for Pan Am. Also displayed next to the Clipperphoto is a small statuette of Zefram Cochrane with his arm reaching out, presumably a smaller-scaled model of the 20-meter-tall statue of Cochrane that Geordi described to Cochrane himself in Star Trek: First Contact (1996).

Joseph Ruskin (Suliban Doctor) appeared in every Star Trek television series except Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) (although he did appear in Star Trek: Insurrection (1998) movie starring the TNG crew). With the exception of Majel Barrett, who has appeared in every Star Trek series, he was the only actor to appear in all four of the series in question. Furthermore, given that Barrett only provided the computer voice in Star Trek: Voyager (1995) and Star Trek: Enterprise (2001), Ruskin was the only actor to appear on screen in all four series mentioned above. Along with Majel Barrett, Clint Howard, Jack Donner, and Vince Deadrick, he was one of only five actors to appear in both Star Trek (1966): The Original Series and St ar Trek: Enterprise. He, Barrett and Howard also appeared in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993). Jonathan Frakes also appears in four series (all but the Star Trek: The Original Series). Ruskin also worked on two Star Trek video games, lending his voice to Master Si'tann in Star Trek: Hidden Evil (1999) and to Admiral Nolotai and Vulcan Master N'Kal in Star Trek: Away Team (2001).
