About the Show

Star Trek: Enterprise (originally titled Enterprise for the first two seasons) is an American science fiction television series created by Rick Berman and Brannon Braga as a prequel to the original Star Trek set 100 years before which takes place in the 22nd century aboard Earth's first warp 5 capable starship Enterprise NX-01, designed for long-range exploration of the galaxy and captained by Jonathan Archer.

The series aired in the USA on UPN from 26 September, 2001 to 13 May, 2005. There are 98 hour-long episodes in four seasons.

Star Trek: Enterprise originally aired in South Africa on DStv's now-defunct The Sci-Fi Channel and actionX (which became M-Net Action in 2008), from 2 April, 2002 to 9 February, 2006. It later aired on TopTV's FOX FX channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 3 premiered on FOX FX on Monday 31 March 2014, at 16h00. New episodes broadcast daily, on weekdays. There are 24 episodes in the third season.


Star Trek: Enterprise focuses on the 22nd century adventures of Captain Jonathan Archer aboard the Enterprise NX-01 during the early days of interstellar travel.

In the nine decades following Zefram Cochrane's visionary warp flight in space and the first contact that followed, the human race has been slowly guided by the Vulcans toward developing the Warp Five engine.

Mankind is at last able to explore the virgin depths of space with a revolutionary new starship, the Enterprise NX-01, under the command of Captain Jonathan Archer.

The NX designation indicates that this Enterprise is an experimental prototype; Archer's ship is Earth's first vessel designed for long-range exploration of the galaxy.

Prior to the development of warp engines that could reach a velocity of warp 5, missions of this nature were impossible. At warp 2, only a handful of inhabited planets were within a year's travel from Earth. But at warp 5, that number increases to 10,000 planets!

It is Archer's job to visit as many of those worlds as he can.

At 190 metres long, the NX-01 is a bit smaller than Kirk's Enterprise, and carries a crew complement of just eighty-three men and women, all human, with the exception of the Vulcan science officer and the Denobulan doctor.

Unlike the starships of the four other Star Trek series, this Enterprise doesn't have deflector shields or phasers, but it does come equipped with a phase cannon and a rudimentary transporter that functions efficiently most of the time.


Note: The Sci-Fi Channel was discontinued in February 2004 and replaced by actionX in April 2004. actionX was rebranded as M-Net Action in 2008.
