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 first name of Captain Archer was initially to have been Jeffrey. While the (American) producers of the show didn't see any problems with this name, UK fans pointed out the link to disgraced author, actor, and politician Jeffrey Archer after learning of the name over the Internet. The name was changed to Jackson, but there was exactly one person in the country named Jackson Archer. To avoid lawsuits, Jonathan was chosen for a name, because there were twenty Jonathan Archers.
I'm gonna have to put you up on report.
Lt. Reed: I saved your life.
Commander Tucker: You disobeyed a direct order.
Lt. Reed: If you put that in my file, it will be years before I am up for a pro...
Lt. Reed: You're pulling my leg.
Commander Tucker: Malcolm, you're just so easy.
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 opening credits for the two-part episode "In A Mirror, Darkly" depict what the opening credits might have been had the show aired in the "Mirror Universe" in which the episode was set.
Two versions of the third season episode, "Harbinger" were broadcast. As originally filmed, a love scene between T'Pol and Trip included a brief view of the top of T'Pol's buttocks. When UPN aired the episode in February 2004, however, the shot was censored. Canadian broadcasts of the episode, however, were uncensored. The DVD version of this scene is uncut.
