Captain Jonathan Archer (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 experience the wonder and mystery of the final frontier as they seek out new life and new civilizations.
The Blu-ray edition of Season Two will feature all 26 episodes, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, Deleted Scenes, Outtakes and several newly produced special features, including:
In Conversation: The First Crew offers fans an intimate, candid reunion between the main cast along with recurring guest stars, as they share their most memorable moments from filming and behind-the-scenes.

Paramount Home Entertainment is set to issue an expanded press release in the near future, complete with a breakdown of the exact contents of each disc, and we'll share further details as they arrive.
Kinda makes me wonder why Paramount is just churning out seasons of Enterprise before they even finish remastering TNG or even get to DS9 and Voyager. Maybe since Enterprise isn't has highly regarded by fans, they figure they may as well just get it over with?
More likely, being a newer series, the elements of Enterprise don't require as much of an effort on their part. Not to say they couldn't use some work - I haven't seen them - but that they already meet what Paramount deems passable, or better, as is. I'm not familiar with DS9 or Voyager, but I know TNG has a huge following that probably warrants investing more time in the series.
Despite its age Enterprise season one looked soft, but I still enjoy the series and will purchase these blu-ray releases. I look forward to season four especially since I bailed on the series then when it first aired.
Enterprise was mastered in HD with the except of a few CGI elements. CGI elements are also rendered in HD but only 720P but sadly there are a few CGI rendered in 480P like the basic ship fly by. I don't know of these were corrected to 720P by Season 2 or later seasons ... The 720P CGI looks OK, the 480P isn't ...
I did a blind buy with Season 1 and really enjoyed it. I'll be picking this one up too. Although it would have been nice if they put more care into the video as it doesn't look as good as TNG, but they did go all out with supplements, which was cool.
I made the mistake of buying season 1 on blu ray and even though I have tried 4 separate times to get through the first episode I just have not been able to stomach sitting through this garbage. It is beyond terrible.
