Star Trek: Enterprise - Season 02

The second season of the American science fiction television series Star Trek: Enterprise[n 1] commenced airing on UPN in the United States on September 18, 2002 and concluded on May 21, 2003 after 26 episodes. Set in the 22nd century, the series follows the adventures of the first Starfleet starship Enterprise, registration NX-01. The second season saw the series continue a concentration on stand-alone episodes as seen in the debut season, but the decision was made to start an ongoing story-arc to run into the third season with the second season finale episode "The Expanse". The second season also saw the return of executive producer Rick Berman to writing duties after he had been working on the film Star Trek: Nemesis.

Star Trek: Enterprise - Season 02


Brannon Braga said that the production team sought to increase the tempo of season two compared to the first season. He said at a press junket held by the Television Critics Association in July 2002 that "We're just starting. We want to capitalise more on the fact that [Enterprise] is a sequel. We want to have a season that maybe has more action in it than it had last season."[34] He predicted that possible storylines would include Jonathan Archer fulfilling more of his potential as Captain of the Enterprise, as well as further instalments in the Temporal Cold War story-arc and further interactions between the crew and both the Andorians and the Vulcans.[34]

Perhaps the biggest announcement made prior to the start of the season was the return of the Romulans to Star Trek. They had not previously been seen on Enterprise, and Braga was well aware that they would have to carefully consider the continuity as the crew of James T. Kirk's Enterprise were the first to see a Romulan in the episode "Balance of Terror". He said "The continuity is airtight. Believe me. We know. We know...".[34] The species were due to make their first appearance in the Star Trek timeline in the episode "Minefield", which was written by former The X-Files writer John Shiban.[34] At the same time that the Romulans were due to appear in Enterprise, work was underway on the Romulan-centric film, Star Trek: Nemesis.[38] The second season also saw an appearance by the Borg in the episode "Regeneration", which was intended to follow up on the events in Star Trek: First Contact.[39]

Star Trek: Enterprise is an American science fiction television series that originally aired on the UPN network from September 26, 2001 to May 13, 2005.[1] Until the episode "Extinction" towards the start of the third season, the series was called simply Enterprise without the Star Trek prefix.[2] The series aired for 97 (DVD and original broadcast) or 98 (syndicated) episodes across four seasons, centering on the adventures of the 22nd century starship Enterprise. They are the first deep space explorers in Starfleet,[3] using the first Warp 5 equipped vessel.[4] It was set within the universe of the Star Trek franchise, with the series placed earlier in the chronology than Star Trek: The Original Series.[5]

At least for me, Enterprise felt like a much different show than TNG and Voyager. There were a few episodes where they were shaking off some of TNG a little (esp. during season 1) but this season 2 started charting a new course (of course by season 4, Enterprise seemed more influenced by the original series finally).

However, by the start of season 3, it was clear Enterprise's break with tradition had not paid off in the way it was meant to. The show's ratings, which had been solid in the beginning, had been declining steadily, and rumors of cancellation had been circulating. Faced with these facts, the creative team was forced to make some changes. One was introducing more serialized storytelling into Enterprise's third season, which did end up earning the show a ratings bump. Most importantly, Paramount Studios ordered the show to add the franchise name back into its title, stating they hoped it would reconnect Enterprise to Star Trek's core fanbase. The change was implemented in season 3, episode 3, "Extinction", and from then on Enterprise became known as Star Trek: Enterprise.

The firstseason of Star Trek: Enterprise, that bastard-child of the Trek franchise, ishitting Blu-ray, presented in a six-disc set consisting of all 25 episodes,including the 2-hour pilot "Broken Bow". Although the show divided the Trek-faithfullike no other, its fans will be tempted to upgrade their 2005 Enterprise DVDset to get their hands on the substantial amount of new material included inthe special features. Unfortunately, with the gold standard in Trek Blu-rayconversions already set by the ongoing deployment of Star Trek: The NextGeneration, Enterprise doesn't measure up.

Season one started the series and gave us tension with the Vulcans unlike any other series prior. There was the exploration of the Klingons, space, and of course, the first season introduced Phlox and the newly created Denobulans to the franchise.

That all changed in season three when the Xindi were introduced, a collective of aliens who feared the advancing of humanity. Instead of working together, the Xindi started an all out-conflict with Earth, firing a weapon that carved hundreds of miles along the Atlantic coast of both North and South America. 041b061a72
