host of previously released special features such as deleted scenes and outtakes.
Star Trek: Enterprise recounts the adventures of the pioneers of space travel who ventured into the universe 100 years before James T. Kirk helmed the starship of the same name. Set in the 22nd century, 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 men and women will experience the wonder and mystery of the final frontier as they seek out new life and new civilizations.

While I understand some Trekkie gripes about how it's rather sloppy in regards to continuity, I enjoyed much of Enterprise and I find it kinda funny that it's the only show that's remains canon for both the original timeline AND the JJ Abrams alternate timeline.
I watched this in Marathon form in 2005-6 season 2 then 1 year later season 3. I fell in love, so many cool little details like the upgrade of torpedoes or "red alert". Glad to have more trek coming this way on blu.
gutted fans voted for that cover, I prefered and voted for the image of the ship in blue atmosphere personally. No Malcolm Reed ;-)
Well technically Servo there is that Borg episode which relates to First Contact.
Might buy this. not a great show, and not the best season, but I'm going to push Trek on Blu-ray sales. Never owned anything but Season 1 of the original in my DVD buying days because it took so long for prices to drop! At least my wait has paid off for HD!
@aimforsilence: according to startrek.com the vote wasn't as one sided as they had hoped so they went based on the comments and created a new cover based on the "characters because that's what the series was about."
As for me, i'm not that impressed with the cover but definately day 1 buy for me.
The do kind of look like CGI characters from an Enterprise PC game or something on that cover.
Nice to see it getting a release, I stopped watching Star Trek altogether during the first 2 seasons of ENT, after having been unimpressed with the episodes I saw (and kinda felt I'd grown out of/weary of the franchise by that point, after watching TNG/DS9/VOY throughout my childhood). Apparently seasons 3 and 4 are pretty good, but might just wait for a Complete Series set given that it's only 4 seasons which may all be out by the end of 2014.
Personally, I wish they'd have kept the cover as being just "Enterprise: Season One". That said, I probably would have put it under Star in my alphabetical collection anyway. I have the Terminator show under 'Sarah Connor'.
Nope! This is the least desirable of the ST's, especially season 1. Only 3 seasons total so this shoul have been released as complete set. No effort needed for restoration like TOS and TNG so the price should also reflect that fact. Starting with that dumb theme song Enterprise has been a comedy of errors from start to BD release. I still want it, but not until all 3 seasons are available at one reasonable price.
why in the world are the deleted scenes in SD? I love that there's multiple new commentaries per episode with the writer and/or director. Paramount needs to learn from the Battlestar Galactica bluray sets as far as what kind/quality of features they should shoot for.
I'd really like to see "director's" cuts of episodes like we saw on the TNG season 2 sets, in addition to the aired cut.
PS: Any Paramount people reading this, 7.1 is total overkill. 6.1 would be more than fine and use the extra bits to improve the picture and supplemental audio quality!
