Log Entries:


  • "Enterprise starlog, Captain Jonathan Archer, April 16, 2151. We've been tracking the Suliban ship for ten hours, thanks to our science officer, who came up with a way to tweak the sensors. I have no reason to believe that Klaang is still alive, but if what the Suliban woman told me is true, it's crucial that we try to find him. I still haven't decided whether to ask Sub-Commander T'Pol about this 'Temporal Cold War.' My instincts tell me not to trust her."


Trivia--There is a scene in this episode where Jolene Blalock, as T'Pol, bared her navel. This required removal of Blalock's navel piercing ring. According to interviews given by Blalock, the ring proved very difficult to remove, and forced Blalock (in full Vulcan make-up) to visit a nearby tattoo-body piercing shop to have it removed.


Earth's first experimental prototype warp 5 starship, the Enterprise NX-01, has finally been completed and the human race is set to take it's place among the stars. Captain Jonathan Archer and his intrepid crew are about to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and boldly go where no man has gone before.
