A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
The Mars rover footage in the opening credits is actually a still image of a Mars rover sliding across a still image of Mars. On Blu-ray copies of the show, the wheels can be seen not moving as the vehicle moves, as a still image would not be animated.

During the first season, Malcolm, (the weapons expert), is giving phase pistol lessons to Hoshi. During the lesson, all Bridge officers are called back to their stations. Hoshi makes a comment, so much for practice, and she hands the phase pistol back to Malcolm, her finger still on the trigger, and the muzzle of the phase pistol aimed directly into Malcolm's chest. No matter the century, or the weapon, this action ranks as the #1 safety violation of handling weapons. It is unlikely that Malcolm, the armory expert, would ignore this safety violation and not immediately reprimand Hoshi.
The closing credits of the first episode, "Broken Bow," uses a unique guitar instrumental version of the show's opening theme song, which has not been used in any further episode of the series.
The Canadian cable network Space Channel uses a different version of the closing credits. While the regular closing consists of white text on a black background, the Space broadcasts fills the top half of the screen with a picture of Earth with the Enterprise logo superimposed over it, with the credits condensed onto the lower half of the screen.
