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

Up to this series, the pilot of each Star Trek series after the first included a cameo of a character from the previous one. However, because "Enterprise" takes place 100 years before Star Trek: The Original Series (1966), the cameo was not of a series character, but of Zefram Cochrane (James Cromwell), who appeared in Star Trek: First Contact (1996) and in Star Trek: The Original Series: Metamorphosis (1967) portrayed by Glenn Corbett.

Goofs

T'pol describes the planet Rigel as being "approximately 15 light years from [their] current position." After the Enterprise travels to the planet, Captain Archer describes Klaang as having been on Rigel "just a few days ago," but even at the then-maximum rated speed of the Enterprise engines, Warp 5 (214 x light speed), it would have taken the ship about 26 days to travel to the planet, making the Klingon's meeting a month or more in the past by the time they arrived.

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.
