    In the 22nd century, before Kirk and Spock, and before the founding of the United Federation of Planets (or the establishment of a "Prime Directive"), humans are just beginning to explore the universe in mankind's first warp 5 vessel, NX-01 Enterprise. It's captain, Jonathan Archer, has the heart of an explorer, but soon learns the hard way that not all new species are friendly, and eventually finds himself more of a military commander than anything else. He makes some mistakes along the way, and at times is forced to make questionable decisions from an ethical standpoint, but his actions nonetheless help pave the way to the founding of The Federation and the concept of a "Prime Directive." His crew consists of a female Vulcan science officer (t'Pol), who helps him overcome many of his resentments towards the Vulcans as the series progresses. His second in command, Charles Tucker, is a brilliant engineer (and quite a Southern-charmer), although he sometimes lacks good judgement in his dealings with alien species. Lt. Malcolm Reed, the British-accented chief weapons officer, is disciplined and reliable; Ensign Travis Mayweather is the brilliant, young space-boomer pilot; Ensign Hoshi Sato is the gifted Asian female linguistics expert and communications officer. Dr. Phlox is the always cheerful, exotic and brilliant alien chief medical officer. As far as Star Trek series go, this one is at the top of the list. Most episodes are above-average, several are truly superior sci-fi adventures, some are simply average, and a very small handful are a little corny, to be sure. But all in all, it's a truly great series, and some of the episodes generate as much thought-provoking adventure and excitement as could ever be expected from television. There are also some genuinely frightening moments, and at times, a level of tension that will have you biting your nails. All the characters are likable and believable, and Scott Bakula turns in an especially magnificent performance as Captain Archer. The special effects, set designs and make-up are exceptional. Even some recurring secondary characters are developed quite effectively and add brilliance to the show. One of the best sci-fi series ever created.
