My Favorite Episodes of Star Trek Enterprise

  • Feb 24, 2012
Star Trek Enterprise isn't really liked that much by Star Trek fans. Im not to sure why but that's part of the reasons I made this list. So people could check out a few of these episodes before they drew their conclusions. So Enjoy. Just like my Star Trek Voyager list but with Enterprise episodes.

(A Lunch Featured List)

Check out my other list
My favorite Episodes of Star Trek Voyager
Shuttlepod 1

Shuttlepod 1 was a really funny episode, that's why I liked it. Trip and Malcolm are in the Shuttlepod on a mission, when they return to the asteroid field where they are  to rendezvous with Enterprise they find hull fragments strewn across a large asteroid. They Presume the ship crashed and has been long with all hands. They spend the next few days in the small craft tempers flare and opposite personalities clash. And dont even get me started on the Bourbon.


Carbon Creek

 I liked Carbon Creek, it was a pretty chill episode. Tpol was telling a story about her Great Great Grandmother. Apperantly First Contact between Human and Vulcans didnt happen in 2063 it actually happened in 1957, when a Vulcan Survey ship crash landed in the Small Town of Carbon Creek Pennsylvania.


This episode was a really cool one, the Enterprise and her crew come across uncharted planetary system. While making plans for exploration the NX-01 is rocked by massive explosions; the ship been has hit by an orbital mine. To make matters worst A Ship De-cloaks, and hails the Enterprise (audio only). The Mysterious aliens introduce themselves as The Romulan Star Empire, and force enterprise to leave the system. 

Theres only one problem one of the mines is still attached to the hull and it could blow at any moment.

Dead Stop
Taking Place directly after Minefield, Dead Stop chronicles Enterprises journey after the events of the last episode. Because of the Massive Damage Done to the ship because of the Romulan mine Enterprise is Stuck at a top Speed of Warp 2.1 trapping them a decade away from jupiter station; Captain Archer sends out a distress signal.

A few hours later the signal is answered by a Tellerite frieghter, pointing them to a repair Station. The Station as it turns out is Fully automated, on top of that it agrees to fix the Ship in under two days for a very low price. Captain Archer has a bad feeling about this repair Station, and rightfully so as inside it houses a terrible secret.
Singularity was another one of those really funny episodes. Under the strange radiation of a Black hole the Enterprise crew start to obsess over trivial matters, eventually everyone passes out and Tpol is the only one unaffected. This Episode is filled with Funny lines and some hilarious dialouge. This is also the episode to introduce the "Tactical Alert", what would later become known as the "Red Alert" condition.

A Part form the really funny Side story involving Trip being hit on by one of Doctor Phlox's Wives, this was actually a good episode for another reason. T'pol is Diagnosed with Pa'nar syndrome; in Vulcan society anyone caught with this disease is Stigmatized, T'pol cant go to Vulcan for help or risk losing her career.

This episode was a contribution to Viacom's HIV Awareness campaign in 2003, so it draws alot of parallels to the issues people who have that disease face today. The message in this episode was just to bring to light the prejudice.

The Most Hated Episode of Star Trek Enterprise, is actually one of my Favorites. Trekkie's or Trekkers please don't hunt me down and chop off my head, just hear me out. Regeneration is like an unofficial sequel to Star Trek First Contact here's how it goes, in first Contact The Enterprise -E destroys a Borg Sphere, Because the Enterprise went back in time to 2063 debris from the sphere landed in Antarctica and was found in the year 2152 by a team of scientists.

Because they are not Familiar with the Borg the scientists accidentally reactivate the frozen Drones. Once awake the Drones do what all drones do, they assimilate the science team. Enterprise is called in to investigate after a Tirolean ship is attacked. Earth Starfleets first (unofficial) Contact with the Borg.

First Flight
Captain Archer and Crew are thrilled to find that they have Discovered a Dark Matter Nebula; however Archer's excitement comes to an end when he finds out that his Close friend A.G Robinson has Passed Away.

This episode was not only a favorite of mine but an important episode in Star Trek because as Archer was reminiscing about the early days of He and Robinson we got a look at the NX-program and earths first steps into Warp technology and Space exploration. This is the reason I liked Enterprise so much. It tried to answer alot of Questions about the Star Trek universe. That's why i get upset when i hear someone bad mouthing this show. IT WASN'T THAT BAD!!!!!
I find it ironic that "Impulse" is the name of this episode. A few weeks into the Xindi mission the Enterprise receives a distress call from a Vulcan ship. Once they reach they find the crew degenerated to an animalistic and paranoid state. They viciously attack the Enterprise Crew members on board. Soon T'pol succumbs to the same thing the Vulcan Crew has been affected with  and eventually has to be strapped down for both her and the Enterprise crews safety.
They soon realize that the Astroid field the Ship is trapped in is lind with Trellium-D, a type of ore that has an odd pyshic effect on Vulcans.


The Enterprise is damaged by A Delphic Expanse Anomaly, while trying to save T'pol Captain Archer becomes infected by interspatial parasites and is unable to form new memories. 12 years later he's retired and T'pol is in command of the Enterprise, unfortunately after an Attack by Xindi Forces Enterprise is limited to Warp 1.7 and is unable to stop the Xindi Superweapon from Destroying earth.

Now Enterprise is Apart of a fleet protecting a Human Settlement on Ceti Alpha V. (Battlestar galactica Anyone) Doctor Phlox discovers a cure for Archers Aliment that when applied will erase the Paracites from oth the Present and the past, trouble arises when the Xindi find Humanities new home and the Enterprise come under attack.

Proving Ground
The crew of the Enterprise is tracking the Xindi Superweapon prototype when they come across some dangerous Spatial Anomalies. At the last minute they are saved by Cmdr Shran of the Andorian Warship The Kumari. Shran offers to help the humans in their search for the prototype.

Earths first joint venture with another race other than the Vulcan's. Although he is grateful for the help Archer is a little suspicious at the gesture. Notheless he allows the mission to continue. Unbeknowest to the crew the Andorians are not just there out of the goodness of thier hearts.

This episode is a favorite for me mainly because it was really good looking. The visual efdects were crazy.

Enterprise is still in severe shape after the Attack by the Xindi. The Ship is riddled with holes and hull fractures, 14 crew members are dead and the Warp core is damaged beyond repair. Only the aft torpedo launcher and three Phase cannons are functioning. Despite the Damage (no pun intended) Enterprise comes to the aid of a small ship in distress. Archer tries to convince the captain to give The Enterprise their Warp Core but he Illyrian wont have it. 

Hoshi soon decodes a message from Degra (found in Archers escape pod) that contains coordinates and a Stardate of where they are supposed to meet. Without warp drive though they will never make the rendezvous. Out of desparation Archer decides to rob the Illyrian ship of thier Warp core. A decision that will haunt the crew for the rest of thier lives.

On the Way to meet Degra the Enterprise Crew encounters an alternate version of its self. Lorian (the offspring of Trip and T'pol)is the captain of the vessel. He explains that Enterprise went back in time accidentally because her impulse manifolds reacted with a subspace corridor causing a rift in time. Enterprise emerged in the 2037; not wanting to contaminate earths history Archer decided not to return. Enterprise becomes a generational Ship.

Believing that they stand a better chance working together the two begin to share resourses. Eventually problems arise when Lorian And Archer are not able to see eye to eye.
I'm not gonna lie, the only reason I like this episode was because A massive Space battle happened in the middle of it. The Battle to Stop the Xindi Superweapon. The Xindi Reptilians have stolen the Superweapon and are on a course for Earth, not only have they stolen the weapon but have kidnapped Hoshi Sato. Archer convinces the Xindi-Aquatics to help them save Earth in exchange for Enterprise to find a way to disable the Delphic Expanse Spheres.

Once they catch up a Massive fleet Consisting of Enterprise, Xindi-Aquatic, Arboreal and Primate vessels attack the Superweapon. The Battle for Earth is on.
The inventor of the transporter on Earth (Emory Erickson) comes board the Enterprise to test a new type of Transporter. According to Emory this new transporter should (in theory) allow someone to transport from earth to Vulcan (over 16 light years). Based on his private conversations with his daughter its clear he is doing more than just testing out a new transporter.

This episode I like JUST BECAUSE it gives a little more back ground into Early Starfleets history. Over than that, there is nothing else really special about this one.
In a Mirror Darkly Parts 1 and 2
In a mirror Darkly Part 1
These two episodes took place entirely in the Mirror universe. The Terran Empire is in a tough spot, they are losing ships. The rebels are fiercely fighting back and its only a matter of time before The Empire is overrun. Commander Archer leads a mutiny against Admiral Forrest and takes command of the enterprise. He is on a mission to Tholian Space where he believes an Advanced Starship form the future awaits. On the way to Tholian Space Forrest's retakes command of his vessel, and throws Archer in the Agony Booth. before his capture Archer set the ships computer on a preset course so not even he could break it. Once they reach the system they find the ship. Its the USS Defiant (NCC-1764) from the 23rd Century. A team is sent over to investigate, unfortunately Enterprise is destroyed then it get caught in a Tholian web.

In a Mirror Darkly Part 2
With Enterprise gone the away team and the crew from the recovered escape pods come together to get the Defiant operational again. Weapons are Activated and so are shields, they destroy the dry docks tractor beams and leave the system at impulse. Trip is eventually able to get the Warp drive operational just in time to assist another Terran Ship (The Avenger NX-09) under attack by rebels. The Defiant cuts through them in no time. Archer grows overconfident in his new power and decides to become emperor of earth. He transfers all non-human personnel to the Avenger. Tpol and Soval convince Phlox (all these guys are the mirror counterparts) to sabotage the Defiant so that Archer cannot become emperor. Once he does Avenger opens fire. With he ship now vulnerable Archer orders Trip to fix the problem, he finds Phlox in a hall pulling out parts that cut out main power. After knocking out Phlox and restoring Power, Archer has the Avenger destroyed. Later on that night he is poisoned by his mistress (Hoshi) who then take command and Declares herself empress of earth.

Enterprise wasn't so bad. I actually enjoyed some episodes on it. Plus--female Vulcan....Brrrr...LOL! You know if add a real profile pic you'll get more of your lists featured in the Lunch homepage. If you prefer not to, I understand.
February 25, 2012
Your like the third person to say that to me. There is nothing wrong with my profile pic. This pic I use I use for all my profiles across all the sites im apart of.
February 25, 2012
oh, sorry no pressure. I did not know that folks have told you that before. The site (I know it sucks since really good write ups can be ignored) require a real profile pic for reviewer's stuff to be featured (I guess it is more of a face behind the reviews/lists).  I really like your list and I think I should feature it on the homepage regardless of a real photo or not.... Your profile pic is fine for me, you just have some great lists that I feel that you should be featured more...
February 25, 2012
I think its a stupid rule too. I mean Im real im here. Regardless of Profile pic. This picture is one I use to define myself. Thats Why I use it. Im Canadian and im a gamer.

I've seen some of Enterprise, enough to get a good taste of what the show was like anyway and I'd say that you hit some good points. This show actually started to be about something when they pulled the plug on it. Brannon and Berman really screwed the pooch on Trek in the long run sadly. Thankfully JJ Abrhams helped bring it back.

As much as I did (dare I say) enjoy Abrams 2009 Trek, I dont give two ****s about his universe. Vulcan being destroyed dont care Why? Cause its in an Alternate Reality. The Prime Star Trek universe still has so much Story to tell. Make a new movie about that, progress the story. Starfleet in the 25th century thats what i wanna see. Not some Alternate timeline 23rd century story.

Anyways thanks for the comment Dude. Yes I really Liked Enterprise Alot. I dont get why most Trek fans hate it so much.
February 25, 2012
I actually did not care about Abrams' universe either. I feel that he dumbed it down--and the scene with Spock as a kid being bullied goes against the Vulcans' established code of logic. It was a little sad that the concept needed to be watered down so that it could make a killing in the box-office.
February 25, 2012
It is sad. Not to mention I noticed alot of areas where the dialouge didnt make sence. I would have much prefered to see the movie they scrapped in favor of this one.
