An Earth research team uncovers wreckage and drones from the Borg sphere that attempted to stop Zephram Cochrane's warp flight nearly 100 years ago. The Borg regenerate, assimilate the team, modify their transport and flee Earth. Enterprise answers a distress call too late, rescues "survivors," and Phlox is injected with assimilation nanoprobes. Enterprise catches the transport and Archer must determine whether or not to try to salvage the personnel or stop the Borg efforts before they are out of control. Written by Meribor

This is the first time quadrants are mentioned on Enterprise (aka, Delta Quadrant). See more »


The Borg always introduce themselves as the Borg before telling you you will be assimilated, resistance is futile. These Borg did not. This is obviously the only way these writers could handle the fact that no one heard of the Borg in that quadrant until Q pushed the enterprise into the delta quadrant in the next generation series. Thought the first contact movie lead to this series chronologically, they seemed to want to avoid any timeline issues with the Borg being known as the Borg but still wanted to play with the idea of survivors.

Captain Jonathan Archer: There was something familiar about all this; but I couldn't put my finger on it until I found this speech Zefram Cochrane made eighty-nine years ago. When I was a kid, I read everything I could about him. It took me a while, but I finally found it in the database. He was giving a commencement address at Princeton, when he started to talk about what really happened during First Contact. He mentioned a group of cybernetic creatures from the future, who tried to stop his first warp flight when he ...

Yet another reason to loathe Enterprise
11 November 2010 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This show was an abomination, another in a long series of coffin nails by Rick Berman. Berman, who can almost single-handedly be blamed for destroying the Star Trek franchise has no business being in charge of anything. He needs to pursue a more suitable career, perhaps as a garbage man or Walmart greeter, something more akin to his (non)abilities.

This episode is a grand example of Berman's pitiful skills. He has no respect for canon. And when the series is failing miserably, he resorts to his ace in the hole, desperation slight of hand - the Borg. It didn't work on Voyager and sure as heck did not work on Enterprise! It requires a complete shelving of any logic to think that Janeway and Voyager could hold the Borg at bay, especially considering the thorough beating one Borg cube did to a large part of Starfleet at Wolf 359. And Archer and his Tonka Toy star ship and pathetic weaponry are going to fare well against the Borg? Puh-leaze! Gimme a break! Let's see...sometimes the Borg adapted themselves to the Starfleet weapons and were able to repel them and then in the next scene, other Borg were getting killed? Who wrote this krap??? And amazingly, Phlox was able to cure himself of Borgification?? And oh, by the way...did Archer's logs get lost at some point so that Picard and Enterprise D were completely clueless about the Borg??
