Storyline

Archer, Trip, T'Pol and Hoshi have been captured, but it turns out this group of Sulibans is lead by Sarin, the person Klaang last spoke to before crash landing on earth. She tells Klaang was carrying an important message to Kronos that must prevent a breakout of civil war in the Klingon Empire. But another group of Suliban attack and before dying she urges Archer to find Klaang. The four humans escape from the planet, but Archer gets wounded in the leg. He loses consciousness and T'Pol announces she is taking command of Enterprise. To everybody's surprise she modifies the sensors so that Enterprise can track the ship that captured Klaang.

Trivia

Joseph Ruskin (Suliban Doctor) appeared in every Star Trek television series except Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) (although he did appear in Star Trek: Insurrection (1998) movie starring the TNG crew). With the exception of Majel Barrett, who has appeared in every Star Trek series, he was the only actor to appear in all four of the series in question. Furthermore, given that Barrett only provided the computer voice in Star Trek: Voyager (1995) and Star Trek: Enterprise (2001), Ruskin was the only actor to appear on screen in all four series mentioned above. Along with Majel Barrett, Clint Howard, Jack Donner, and Vince Deadrick, he was one of only five actors to appear in both Star Trek (1966): The Original Series and St ar Trek: Enterprise. He, Barrett and Howard also appeared in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993). Jonathan Frakes also appears in four series (all but the Star Trek: The Original Series). Ruskin also worked on two Star Trek video games, lending his voice to Master Si'tann in Star Trek: Hidden Evil (1999) and to Admiral Nolotai and Vulcan Master N'Kal in Star Trek: Away Team (2001).

In the opening shot of Kronos, the CG figure walking by the base of the bridge with a sword-like object in their hand can be seen to "ascend" one step before it actually reaches the area with the steps leading up to the bridge. See more »

Quotes

Captain Jonathan Archer: Ever since I can remember, I've seen... Vulcans as an obstacle. Always keeping us from standing on our own two feet.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: I understand.
Captain Jonathan Archer: No, I don't think you do. If I'm gonna pull this off, there're a few things I need to leave behind. Things like... preconceptions, holding grudges. This mission would've failed without your help.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: I won't dispute that.
Captain Jonathan Archer: I was thinking. A Vulcan science officer could come in handy. But if I asked you to stay, it might look like I wasn't ready to do this on my own.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: ...

Loyalty is an Emotion
18 October 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Captain Jonathan Archer, T'Pol and Trip meet Sarin and she explains that Klaang is a courier, bringing an important message from her to the leaders of the Klingons in Kronos about rebels Suliban that intend to promote the Temporal Cold War among the Klingons. Archer feels the need of rescuing Klaang and travels to the Suliban mother-ship with Trip to bring the Klingon back to Enterprise. T'Pol seems to understand that loyalty is an emotion that cannot be avoided by humans.

In spite of being a huge fan of Star Trek, I have not followed the episodes of "Enterprise" on cable television. I have decided to buy the DVD box of the First Season and this first episode surprised me. The adventure of the first Enterprise, Captain Jonathan Archer, the gorgeous T'Pol, Reed, Mayweather, Dr. Phlox, Hoshi and Trip is excellent, at least in this pilot. I have noted in IMDb that this episode is actually divides in two parts, but on DVD they are just one, therefore my review is valid for both. I did not like the music score theme, which I found very annoying, but this was an exception in this great show. My vote is nine.
