Star Trek: Enterprise - Season 1 (2001)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

First Trek

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

I'm still not sure what to make of this fifth "StarTrek" series, which premiered in 2001 and has come to the end of its runin 2005. Many fans complain that it ignores the logic of the "StarTrek" universe, so carefully established by the other shows and movies. Itblatantly reinvents Jeri Ryan's successful "Seven of Nine" characterfrom "Star Trek: Voyager" as a sexy, unapproachable Vulcan, T'Pol,played by Jolene Blalock. John Billingsley's wry Dr. Phlox character echoes theemergency hologram doctor from the same show, and Scott Bakula's Captain Archeris even more hot-headed than Kirk, Riker and Janeway put together -- with lesspersonality. Moreover, its wailing, embarrassingly earnest pop-metal theme song(by Russell Watson and Diane Warren) has to be one of the worst ever recordedfor a major television show. Yet, the show still has its moments. The dialogueis mostly authentic and the visual effects are absolutely superb, as evidencedby the outstanding quality Paramount has wrung from its new box set.

DVD Details: The 7-disc set collects all 26 hour-long episodes from Season One, including the two-hour pilot, "Broken Bow." It also contains seven behind-the-scenes featurettes (about 10 or 12 minutes each) and a blooper reel.
