Overview

Telling the thrilling tale of what the Star Trek universe was like 100 years before the time of Captain Kirk, the first season of the fifth Star Trek television series -- Star Trek: Enterprise -- comes to DVD in this excellent box set. The focus of the set are the season's 24 episodes, which are spread out over seven discs and presented in a gorgeous 1.78:1 letterboxed widescreen format. While the set's Dolby Digital 2.0 surround sound audio mix is impressive, it just isn't quite as jaw-dropping and speaker-rocking as were the mixes on some of Paramount's previous Star Trek sets. The season itself, while still suffering from the same awkward problems all recent Trek series' first seasons have faced, contains some highlight episodes. The exceptional "The Andorian Incident" not only reintroduces the fan-favorite, original-series Andorian aliens, but brings in scene-stealing actor Jeffrey Combs as the main alien, Shran. The series' feature-quality two-hour pilot episode, "Broken Bow, features a candid audio commentary track with series creators Brannon Braga and Rick Berman. Braga and Berman openly discuss the problems they ran into with Star Trek's extremely dedicated fans over their use of Trek history and explore their feelings on how Enterprise turned out in the end. Now notorious for being the only recent Star Trek series to be canceled, this first season introduced many plot threads that, sadly, never went anywhere during the show's four-year run. Despite any flaws, this first season of Enterprise does an outstanding job introducing Captain Archer (Scott Bakula) and his crew of shipmates. The set's bonus-feature-packed seventh disc offers a memorable collection of featurettes that will likely send fans into warp 11. Things kick off with a healthy dose of 16 deleted scenes from episodes across the season. A nine-minute light-hearted outtakes reel follows and leads into a series of behind-the-scenes documentaries. From the creation of the series to a touching profile of Scott Bakula and a guided tour of the show's Shuttlepod One, these are featurettes made with the fan in mind. Hidden DVD Easter eggs reveal more talks with actors, including a look at the actress behind the stern Vulcan T'Pol, Jolene Blalock. While more audio commentaries by the series' cast and slightly more in-depth featurettes would have been nice, this DVD set remains a solid release for an introduction to a vastly under-appreciated series.
