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

Van Epperson has appeared in three Star Trek spin-off series. His first Star Trek appearance, as a morgue attendant in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Time's Arrow: Part II (1992) was deleted from the final version but he is still credited in the ending crawl. His second Star Trek appearance was a Bajoran clerk in charge of the station's assay office in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Q-Less (1993). In his third Star Trek appearance, he played a "burlesque show alien" (credited as Alien Man) in Enterprise "Broken Bow". See more »

Goofs

Captain Archer mentions that a "7 foot" Klingon would be hard to miss on Rigel 10. In Star Trek, the metric system is used, therefore his height would be referenced in meters and not feet. Also, Klaang is only 6"5. See more »

Strong start overall
27 September 2001 | by anjiaoshiSee all my reviews

A strong pilot, this two-hour episode does an excellent job of setting up the characters and background for "Enterprise," the "prequel" to the original "Star Trek" series. It stumbles a few times into "Trek" convention and cliché--candy-colored space strippers never seem to go out of style, and I can already foresee snickering references to T'pol as "Seven of Vulcan"--but the ensemble looks strong, the characters are well-drawn, and one can already see hints that this particular crew will have to be more resourceful, in different ways, than those of earlier (later?) series. Scott Bakula hits the right note as a captain with Kirk's brashness and daring but without his smugness and swagger, and I look forward to the ways in which the series will feature the engineer, weapons master and communications officer (not just a glorified phone operator anymore!) as supporting players. The writers seem to have picked up on the one big mistake made in "Star Trek: The Next Generation," "Deep Space 9" and "Voyager": Instead of starting with a big ensemble cast and giving characters short shrift, it's starting with a smaller core of characters to which a little more variety can be added later--which I hope happens, because after about a half-dozen episodes, more variety will be needed.
