A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
Enterprise is hit with a rather intense anomaly. Refusing to leave an injured T'Pol behind, Archer is struck by the anomaly, leaving his brain infected with parasites, preventing him from making any ...
The Borg travel back in time intent on preventing Earth's first contact with an alien species. Captain Picard and his crew pursue them to ensure that Zefram Cochran makes his maiden flight reaching warp speed.
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
On the eve of retirement, Kirk and McCoy are charged with assassinating the Klingon High Chancellor and imprisoned. The Enterprise crew must help them escape to thwart a conspiracy aimed at sabotaging the last best hope for peace.
The year is 2151. Earth has spent the last 88 years since learning how to travel faster than the speed of light studying under the wisdom of their alien ally called the 'Vulcans'. Now, the first crew of human explorers sets out into deep space on a ship called the 'Enterprise' to see what is beyond our solar system.
The first name of Captain Archer was initially to have been Jeffrey. While the (American) producers of the show didn't see any problems with this name, UK fans pointed out the link to disgraced author, actor, and politician Jeffrey Archer after learning of the name over the Internet. The name was changed to Jackson, but there was exactly one person in the country named Jackson Archer. To avoid lawsuits, Jonathan was chosen for a name, because there were twenty Jonathan Archers.

During the first season, Malcolm, (the weapons expert), is giving phase pistol lessons to Hoshi. During the lesson, all Bridge officers are called back to their stations. Hoshi makes a comment, so much for practice, and she hands the phase pistol back to Malcolm, her finger still on the trigger, and the muzzle of the phase pistol aimed directly into Malcolm's chest. No matter the century, or the weapon, this action ranks as the #1 safety violation of handling weapons. It is unlikely that Malcolm, the armory expert, would ignore this safety violation and not immediately reprimand Hoshi. See more »
Before the opening credits of the episode "Stigma" (original airdate 5 February 2003) a tribute to the crew of the space shuttle Columbia (deceased 1 February 2003) states "To the crew of the space shuttle Columbia, you continue to be our inspiration." See more »
The Season 1 DVD release in May 2005 included several minutes of deleted scenes for several episodes. Most of these were obvious trims for time or pacing, but a couple of more substantial cuts are also included, such as a scene from "Two Days Two Nights" showing how Archer arranged for his crew to take shore leave on Risa (including a line of dialogue from T'Pol that foreshadows the following season's episode "The Seventh").

Its Official, after 4 years of Enterprise, UPN has announced Enterprise will end after this season. Look on www.startrek.com.
PS i think the 3rd season killed Enterprise and a fan base unwilling to stretch their imaginations and get some new material in. The 3rd Season with a great area called the Delphic Expanse has never been mentioned in previous Star Trek canon and I think it would have been considering Earth was nearly destroyed.
Typically it gets cancelled as Season 4 was improving its outlook, the 3-story arcs were great and we were starting to get the Vulcans back into the Vulcans we recognised (I think the new types of Vulcans were a turn off for fans as well.) I was loving all the Tellarites/Andorians/Vulcans/Humans starting to work together, we had the beginnings of the Federation.
Its a shame but I personally do blame a lack of imagination in Berman/Braga.
