An Earth research team uncovers wreckage and drones from the Borg sphere that attempted to stop Zefram Cochrane's warp flight nearly 100 years ago. The Borg regenerate, assimilate the team, modify their transport and flee Earth. Enterprise answers a distress call too late, rescues "survivors," and Phlox is injected with assimilation nanoprobes. Enterprise catches the transport and Archer must determine whether or not to try to salvage the personnel or stop the Borg efforts before they are out of control. Written by Meribor

Captain Jonathan Archer: There was something familiar about all this; but I couldn't put my finger on it until I found this speech Zefram Cochrane made eighty-nine years ago. When I was a kid, I read everything I could about him. It took me a while, but I finally found it in the database. He was giving a commencement address at Princeton, when he started to talk about what really happened during First Contact. He mentioned a group of cybernetic creatures from the future, who tried to stop his first warp flight when he ...

A Great Episode that Divides the Real Star Trek Fans from the Fake
20 July 2017 | by squareglass702See all my reviews

This is an excellent and well written episode. There are no continuity errors as some fans, who clearly don't pay attention to the shows, would like to say.

The writing staff took a great amount of effort to ensure there were no continuity errors, if the errors exist, they aren't from Star Trek: Enterprise, instead they would arise from Star Trek: First Contact.

Let me explain. In First Contact, they leave a vessel with borg in it on a past earth crashed in the Arctic. They just leave it there! No cares to whether the borg in the ship could later on cause problems!

In Star Trek: Enterprise, this vessel is found. At the end of Regeneration they find out the Borg sent a subspace transmission to the Delta Quadrant and it'd take 200 years to get there, placing that transmission roughly around the TNG period. It literally effects nothing about the timeline of the borg invasion.

That means Star Trek: Enterprise takes place after First Contact, which makes perfect sense, since the TNG crew went back to the time of Zephram Cochrane and fought the borg, Cochrane being pre- Enterprise.

In TNG the borg never say "We are the borg", yet in ENT they do, meaning that in TNG, they did not know they were making their first contact with the borg till much later.

Anyway, phenomenal acting, and definitely not when this series jumped the shark. Its no slap in the face to fans, especially not to fans who can't even pay attention to the continuity.
