Did You Know?
The first appearance of photon torpedoes in the series. Up until then, Enterprise fired spatial or conventional torpedoes, which are essentially missiles that are launched at sub-lightspeed, whereas photon torpedoes have an antimatter warhead and can be fired at lightspeed. See more
When the Enterprise first comes into Earth orbit we can see the swath as a black line starting in Florida (a little west of Lake Okeechobee south to Everglades National Park and across the Keys). Cuba is covered by a cloud in the shot, but we saw it hit at the start. Following a straight path, the black swath clearly ends by going through Panama (east of Panama City), not Venezuela as stated. And, no, that's not the canal, it's west of Panama City. See more
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III
I can't wait to get in there, Captain - find the people who did this. And tell me we won't be tiptoeing around. None of that non-interference crap T'Pol's always shoving down our throats. Maybe it's a good thing she's leaving.
Capt. Jonathan Archer
We'll do what we have to, Trip... Whatever it takes.
