Today humans have formed the Terran Empire, assimilating many other species, but there's a devastating war with rebels going on. First officer Jonathan Archer disagrees with a decision Captain Forrest is making. He decides to take matters into his own hands and starts a mutiny. In command of the Enterprise, Archer sets course for Tholian space. Reports have shown that the Tholians have captured an Earth ship that might have come from another universe.

The Starfleet chest emblems used for the dead Defiant crew is wrong. The dead crew and later some members of Archer's crew are wearing TOS style uniforms but the emblems are not consistent with that had been worn in, "The Tholian Web."

In "The Tholian Web", the Defiant crew are wearing the traditional "delta" chest insignia. This is visible in several shots as Kirk and the team investigate the ship. Also, Gene Roddenberry and Bob Justman had a standing order and reinforced in a 1967 memo that all actors/Starship personnel "wear the Starship emblem that we have established for our Enterprise Crew Members to wear". This memo was posted on a Star Trek BBS. See more »
