Storyline

In the mid-22nd century, the Earth ship Enterprise is launched under the command of Captain Jonathan Archer. When the crew rescues an alien from a crashed spaceship, Earth gets its first look at the alien's race - the Klingons. Archer and his crew must walk a fine line as they attempt to communicate with the Klingon pilot, whose language is completely unknown, and whose homeworld wants him back. Is this the beginning of friendship...or interstellar war? Written by Brian Barjenbruch

Trivia

According to Jolene Blalock, a decision was made to change T'Pol's make-up - particularly her hairstyle - after three days of shooting. All Blalock's scenes for the first few days had to be reshot. See more »

Goofs

When Captain Archer travels to Brazil, Hoshi Sato is teaching a class in another language. The closed captions state it is Klingon, however, since Earth hasn't had any contact with Quon'os before, it is highly unlikely they would know how to speak it, Hoshi tried to use the universal translator when Klaang is in sickbay. Since she wasn't familiar with any Klingon dialects, with the small sample the Vulcans donated, the language she was teaching was another species, possibly insectoid. See more »

The prequel to Star Trek
27 September 2001 | by spock065See all my reviews

Just saw Enterprise: Broken Bow, and I would have to say that it is different. It's like one hundred years before Kirk and it's interesting to see how Starfleet gets to where we know it. The uniforms are different than the standard color coordination that Star Trek has used before. It's more of a more military look. The starship shots are all computer generated, on The Next Generation they used models, boy I miss that. Great way to start off a new show, especially when they used the transporter on a human for the first time. The show looks to be promising from this pilot.
