Trivia

The Captain's chair used in the fourth season was originally from the Enterprise-E bridge set in a deleted scene from the ending of Star Trek: Nemesis (2002). See more »

Goofs

The montage shown during the introduction shows events in the history of flight and space exploration but not in chronological order. Also, the events seem to focus on American achievements and doesn't show Russias role in the space race including the first object in space (Sputnik), first animal in space (Laika the dog) & first man in space (Yuri Gagarin).

Quotes

Lt. Reed: All we have left is to reset the emitters.
Lieutenant Talas: What's the frequency?
Lt. Reed: I'll do it.
Lieutenant Talas: You don't trust me.
Lt. Reed: No offence, but when it comes to our weapons frequencies, I wouldn't trust my own mother.
Lieutenant Talas: Is your mother considered a security risk?
Lt. Reed: It's just an expression.
Lieutenant Talas: An odd one. My mother's security clearance is higher than mine.

An excellent Star Trek series that was a victim of bad timing
8 August 2007 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

ENTERPRISE came out at a lousy time. Coming in the wake of four other Trek series shows and all the movies, the public never seemed all that stuck on the show. Plus, while I was a huge fan, I must admit that the series started slowly---very, very slowly. As a result, the show was canceled prematurely--after the show had greatly improved but lost its audience. It's really a shame.

The series is supposedly a prequel to all the Star Trek shows and shows the earliest journeys of mankind to the stars. I really liked what the writers did with the Vulcans, as in previous Star Trek shows, this race was super-noble. Here, however, they were less angelic--doing their best to keep humans on Earth as well as showing a deviousness that you only slowly came to realize. But perhaps the most interesting race on the series were the Andorians (who were only briefly seen on the original STAR TREK). These arch-rivals of the Vulcans seemed hyper-aggressive and unreasonable through part of the series, but after a while you come to see that the Vulcans really were jerks and dishonest in this series. While the Andorians were not the nicest of people, despite initial appearances, they could be reasonable and even allies. This plot element that was woven throughout the series was particularly effective and I loved how these beings were far more complex than you first thought (much like the Narn were on BABYLON 5).

The major plot running through most episodes involved a doomsday weapon that obliterated Florida when first tested and was destined to be used to wipe out the entire planet and this was an excellent and interesting plot idea. The voyage across unknown space to stop this carnage was kept my interest. Additionally, most of the crew members were interesting and well-written, though since it was made in the 21sst century, they tended to be sex perverts compared to earlier and more chaste series (including one episode where a male crew member got pregnant after making it with another species)! Still, there was a lot to recommend here--too bad it came on the heels of all this other Trek, as it couldn't help but fail due to audience overload.

By the way, there are MANY inconsistencies on the show if you compare it to the original Star Trek, such as the Enterprise looking far more high tech in this series (though it was set in an earlier year). Unless you are a major geek with no life whatsoever, this shouldn't be a major problem. If it IS, then you need to join Star Trek Anonymous!
