Main Characters in this Episode
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Actually, I'd prefer a leg.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Never too late to learn.
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: Frankly, sir, from my point of view, that kind of socializing has no place on a starship.
Captain Jonathan Archer: I had a C.O. once - felt the same way. "They're your crew, not your friends." I thought about that a lot when I took this command. But then I realized, this is not your typical mission. We could be out here for years. All we have to depend on is each other.
- "V070-39-89761-1034, MN-HULL" is visible on the Enterprise hull plating. The Rockwell drawings for the Space Shuttle all start with V070, and it's likely the drawing number for a shuttle tile.
- Rumulans and Vulcans are directly related to each other. The Vulcan High Command would certainly know this and T'Pol was not privy to that information, which suggests that the Vulcans are even keeping information from their own people.
- First Star Trek: Enterprise episode written by John Shiban, who previously had a long career on the The X-Files. "Minefield", and tackled a sensitive subject in the world of Trek continuity, the Romulans. Despite fears, the episode was raved by critics and fans accepted the complicated continuity as a result.
