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 Cochrane 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.
Several episodes feature clips from classic movies as the crew enjoys occasional "Movie Night" diversions. Most of the films that have been featured, such as For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943) and The Court Jester (1955) are, naturally, Paramount films (and Enterprise is produced by Paramount). However, one episode prominently featured footage from Frankenstein (1931), a Universal Studios production. By using films from its own libraries, Paramount thus avoided having to pay royalties.

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 Canadian cable network Space Channel uses a different version of the closing credits. While the regular closing consists of white text on a black background, the Space broadcasts fills the top half of the screen with a picture of Earth with the Enterprise logo superimposed over it, with the credits condensed onto the lower half of the screen.

While flawed in some ways, Ent has some qualities that make it one of the better series of Star Trek. The actor's, on the whole, are better actors, The story lines are a bit less fantastic than some of the unbelievable ones in the some of the other shows. Enterprise is often outgunned, and often the underdog. It has a grittier feel to it, somewhat more believable.
The steady evolution of T'Pols character is good too, it gives a view of Vulcan culture that adds some depth to the show. The long drawn out romance between T'Pol and Trip is more subtle than some of the others. Shame it only got to 4 seasons...it and TNG are my favorites.
