Product Description

Set in the 22nd century, a hundred years before James T. Kirk helmed the famous starship of the same name, ENTERPRISE takes place in an era when interstellar travel is still in its infancy. Captain Jonathan Archer (Scott Bakula) has assembled a crew of brave explorers to chart the galaxy on a revolutionary spacecraft: Enterprise NX-01. As the first human beings to venture into deep space, these pioneers will experience the wonder and mystery of the final frontier as they seek out new life and new civilizations.

Amazon.com

Described by series cocreator Brannon Braga as "a single episode that lasts 24 hours," the third season of Star Trek: Enterprise is arguably the best in the show's four-season run. With the epic "Xindi saga" as the season's primary story arc, the series found its tonal focus in the unpredictable space of the Delphic Expanse, where alien encounters and matter-warping spatial anomalies forced Capt. Archer (Scott Bakula) to make extreme decisions that tested his ethical boundaries. Realizing the need for a fresh viewpoint, Braga and cocreator Rick Berman hired Manny Coto, a TV veteran who conceived or wrote several of the season's finest episodes (not forgetting Mike Sussman and other members of the series' first-rate writing staff). Coto's involvement was instrumental in shaping the Xindi saga, which began (with season 2's cliffhanger) when Earth was attacked by a Xindi probe--a massive weapon which Archer must now destroy. This vital mission dominates season 3, deriving its potent drama from an impressive variety of characters and subplots focused on the five-species Xindi council, which finds its voice of reason in Primate member Degra (season regular Randy Oglesby) and rancor in the Reptilian Commander (Scott MacDonald), pivotal characters whose fates will be tragically intertwined.

Despite lower ratings and budgetary cutbacks (as evident in several ship-bound episodes with minimal casting), season 3 was equally strong as a showcase for the Enterprise regulars, with plenty of fan speculation rising from the sexy and soothing Vulcan "neuro-pressure" sessions between the insomniac Tucker (Connor Trinneer, better than ever) and T'Pol, whose hidden addiction to a toxic compound allows Jolene Blalock to mine the volatile depths of her character (who now sports a more appealing hairstyle and wardrobe). Meanwhile, security chief Reed (Dominick Keating) engages in heated competition with Major Hayes (reliable guest Steven Culp, from the first season of Desperate Housewives), the leader of NX-01's Military Assault Command Operation (or MACO), which Reed views with territorial suspicion. And while Enterprise still fumbled to develop the characters of Hoshi (Linda Park) and Travis (Anthony Montgomery), John Billingsley continued to bring clutch-player excellence to his role as Dr. Phlox in several highlight episodes including "Doctor's Orders" and "Similitude," the latter featuring equally strong work by Trinneer in an ethically complex (and fan-favorite) examination of the cloning--a typical example of Star Trek at its best.

The alternate timeline of "Twilight" also honors the classic Trek tradition, while "Harbinger" reveals the existence of the trans-dimensional Sphere Builders, whose moon-sized creations affect Enterprise throughout its season-long mission. Finally, the crucial appearances of blue-skinned Andorian Shran (Jeffrey Combs) bring both suspense and comic relief to the season's grim proceedings, adding depth and tentative alliance to Enterprise's pre-Federation politics--a crucial element that assumes greater importance with the jaw-dropping cliffhanger of "Zero Hour" and the surprises in store for season 4, which will bring Enterprise ever closer to the original Star Trek timeline.

DVD features
Gathered on disc 7, the season 3 bonus features for Enterprise are consistent with features on seasons 1 and 2: Identical in presentation but different in content. The "Xindi Saga" featurette summarizes the creative and practical decisions that resulted in the season-long story arc; "Enterprise Profile" acknowledges the popularity of "Trip" Tucker and Connor Trinneer's successful effort to transcend the character's "hayseed" image; and "A Day in the Life of a Director" finds Roxann Dawson (aka B'Elanna Torres from Voyager) well in control as she helms the episode "Exile." As with previous DVD sets, three more "NX-01" files are hidden as "Easter eggs" on the Special Features menus, and they include further appreciations of the Enterprise writers, the work of costume designer Robert Blackman, and John Billingsley's hilarious anecdote about Phlox's prodigious sexual endowment(s). The outtakes are amusing but all too brief, perhaps owing to the higher stakes (and lower ratings) of a dramatically serious season. --Jeff Shannon

After two season of eroding ratings,the wrath of fans, and the ST franchise at an all time low, The Third season of the newly re-christened Star Trek Enterprise had taken the series into a new direction and produced some of the best episodes since the end of Deep Space Nine.
Taking it's cue from the second season finale The Expanse,the entire season deals with Captain Jonathan Archer's mission to stop the Xindi from destroying Earth with a superweapon after a devastating attack.Albiet,there were some weak semi stand alone episodes (Extinction,North Star,Carpenter St.,and E2),among classic episodes which ranks with some of the franchises best(Impulse,Twilight,Azati Prime/Damage,The Counsel/Countdown/Zero Time).Staff member Manny Coto was responsible for new direction which made for the most exciting season of the entire four year run.
Unfortunatly the exciting new direction couldn't produce ratings and was barely renewed after a fan based letter writing campaign,echoing the classic series fan fueled renewal.As a result,Coto became the official show runner which he produced one last season to correct the many continuety errors that has littered the series from the beginning.

Just finished Season 3 of Star Trek Enterprise and wow!!!!! This Star Trek series is not like the other Star Trek epics (from Captain Kirk onwards), and does not keep up with the series tradition of soft-core Sci-fi. This series has lots of people dying and lots of blood splattered around!!!! Casualties are high at an unprecedented level for any Star Trek show. And with a deviation from the previous Star trek tradition, lots of sexual suggestions; some indecent episodes, and tacky sexploitation of T'Pol (Jolene Blalock). Definitely not for children! For example, T'Pol taking showers; removing her clothes for bio-scans; massage sessions with Commander Tucker (Connor Trinneer) and her intense sexual urges. I think the producers are searching for a new audience. Even the good guys die! And the Vulcan T'Pol has weaknesses, unlike Spot.

Furthermore, each episode follows on the previous episode, sort of like Kiefer Sutherland's 24. This is unique in this series of Star Treks. Usually, each episode of the previous Star Trek sagas was independent of each other. One used to be able to watch any of the previous Star Trek episodes without being lost as to what is going on. With Season 3 of Enterprise, however, you'd have to pretty much start with episode one to really understand what is going on and enjoy the series (again, like 24 or Lost).

The whole season revolves around one story: how to stop the Xindi from destroying planet Earth! The Xindi, a race made up of 5 surviving species (Primates, Arboreals, Reptilians, Aquatics and Insectoids), aided by a species from a trans-dimensional space, have attacked Earth and killed seven million people. The attack came from the Delphic Expanse, an unstable region of space where our laws of physics are non-existent.

Enterprise Season Three has been touted as one long episode, and I have to agree, but I liked it just the same. Yes there weren't 20 something episodes about different planets, exploring space, meeting and greeting resident and hostile alien species. This was one season, full of one basic storyline, saving earth from the xindi weapon. Crossing into the expanse was as if the crew was crossing into "junior" year of space school, no more fun and games its time to get serious and think about the future. We get to see the crew of the enterprise grow both internally and closer to eachother, especially Tripp and T'pol. The Resident science officer , to me, had the most story lines revolved around her next to the captain of course. T'pol was exploring her own emotions, relationships, job and love life throughout , talk about character growth! My favorite episodes, although all of them were amazing, were:

Impulse-I love me some zombies, and I loved me some Vulcan zombies even more! Trillium infected vulcans are downright frightening, and even worse was T'pol getting infected by it, although I loved seeing her flip out.

Exile- This was the most "Buffy-like" episode of star trek I have ever seen for some reason. Maybe it was the demon like telepath who got a hankering for Hoshi to become his consort till death, or maybe it was the whole crystal thing he used to magnify his powers, I still liked it though.

Twilight- Captain archer gets a spacial parasite thingee in his brain and his short term memory doesn't work, so we see the future where earth is gone and the xindi are hunting down leftover humans, and more importantly we see how loyal and loving T'pol really is towards Archer. I cried my eyes out in this one.

Season Three saw 'Enterprise' depart from the single-story format the show had used for its first two seasons. Up until that point only 'Deep Space Nine' had been able to pull off - and quite successfully, I think, proving they could have done it long before - multi-episode arcs. Even 'DS9's' arcs had never encompassed an entire season, so the crew of 'ENT' really took a chance. It's easy as a fan to sit back and look at the decisions that were made and say "oh the series may have last longer if they had done this or that, or maybe if they had started doing story arcs in the first or second season..." No one can really say for sure. I enjoyed most of the first two seasons, with the exception of a few notable episodes.

The Xindi storyline was bold. Having five distinct species on the same planet all develop intelligence simultaneously provided the writers with a lot of different material to work with. A year-long mission to save Earth and humanity from extinction, forcing the characters into pressure-cooker situations ... really gave the show the raw edge I think it was supposed to have from the very beginning. We were able to experience the darker facets of the characters' emotions as they pretty much unraveled. Many folks did not like the inclusion of the Temporal Cold War (at all) into the Xindi Arc. Personally I loved the Temporal Cold War story, and it made perfect sense in this season. Considering the NX-01 hadn't traveled very far it had to be explained how and why this crew could counter enter the Delphic Expanse, yet have the expanse not exist in the 24th century. It explained the existence of the Suliban, the Sphere Builders, why the Expanse no longer existed in the time of TNG, DS9, and VOY.
