Star Trek : Enterprise

Just started watching this series for the first time. The initial episode was pretty good and was fun to see a little cameo by James Cromwell as Zefram Cochran as part of a little speech where we discover the origins of the line “Space, the final frontier”. 

Not really a fan of the theme song at the beginning. It seems a bit too Western, but perhaps that’s what it is going for. 

This series is set a little bit before the time of Captain Kirk and crew. The presentation of more retro technology of physical switches etc was actually quite refreshing in someways. Also the initial episodes actually concentrate on ‘first encounters’ of klingons and even the development of the universal translator. 

Up to episode 4. Not quite sure about how this is going. There is something about some of the characters that don’t seem quite relatable. The historical trek technology is interesting with a reference to the holodeck. The doctor is quite good though, a charming gregarious fellow of non-human origin.
