All 24 episodes from the third series of the American television sci-fi drama, set 100 years before the events of the original 1960s series. In this series, the crew of the Enterprise are on a continuing mission to learn all they can about the evil Xindi race that is threatening Earth. Their quest to discover more about the Xindi's bio-weapon leads the crew to the far corners of the galaxy, back to 21st century Earth, and throughout a universe plagued by increasingly unstable temporal fluctuations. When the Enterprise is badly damaged in an attack, Captain Archer (Scott Bakula) leads his crew into a final showdown with the Xindi Council, before learning of the sinister Sphere Builders who have been manipulating both races for their own mysterious ends. Episodes are: 'The Xindi'; 'Anomaly'; 'Extinction'; 'Rajiin'; 'Impulse'; 'Exile'; 'The Shipment'; 'Twilight'; 'North Star'; 'Similitude'; 'Carpenter Street'; 'Chosen Realm'; 'Proving Ground'; 'Stratagem'; 'Harbinger'; 'Doctor's Orders'; 'Hatchery'; 'Azati Prime'; 'Damage'; 'The Forgotten'; 'E2'; 'The Council'; 'Countdown' and 'Zero Hour'.
Described by series cocreator Brannon Braga as "a single episode that lasts 24 hours," the third season of Star Trek: Enterprise is arguably the best in the show's four-season run. With the epic "Xindi saga" as the season's primary story arc, the series found its tonal focus in the unpredictable space of the Delphic Expanse, where alien encounters and matter-warping spatial anomalies forced Capt. Archer (Scott Bakula) to make extreme decisions that tested his ethical boundaries. Realizing the need for a fresh viewpoint, Braga and cocreator Rick Berman hired Manny Coto, a TV veteran who conceived or wrote several of the season's finest episodes (not forgetting Mike Sussman and other members of the series' first-rate writing staff). Coto's involvement was instrumental in shaping the Xindi saga, which began (with season 2's cliffhanger) when Earth was attacked by a Xindi probe--a massive weapon which Archer must now destroy. This vital mission dominates season 3, deriving its potent drama from an impressive variety of characters and subplots focused on the five-species Xindi council, which finds its voice of reason in Primate member Degra (season regular Randy Oglesby) and rancor in the Reptilian Commander (Scott MacDonald), pivotal characters whose fates will be tragically intertwined.
Despite lower ratings and budgetary cutbacks (as evident in several ship-bound episodes with minimal casting), season 3 was equally strong as a showcase for the Enterprise regulars, with plenty of fan speculation rising from the sexy and soothing Vulcan "neuro-pressure" sessions between the insomniac Tucker (Connor Trinneer, better than ever) and T'Pol, whose hidden addiction to a toxic compound allows Jolene Blalock to mine the volatile depths of her character (who now sports a more appealing hairstyle and wardrobe). Meanwhile, security chief Reed (Dominick Keating) engages in heated competition with Major Hayes (reliable guest Steven Culp, from the first season of Desperate Housewives), the leader of NX-01's Military Assault Command Operation (or MACO), which Reed views with territorial suspicion. And while Enterprise still fumbled to develop the characters of Hoshi (Linda Park) and Travis (Anthony Montgomery), John Billingsley continued to bring clutch-player excellence to his role as Dr. Phlox in several highlight episodes including "Doctor's Orders" and "Similitude," the latter featuring equally strong work by Trinneer in an ethically complex (and fan-favorite) examination of the cloning--a typical example of Star Trek at its best.
The alternate timeline of "Twilight" also honours the classic Trek tradition, while "Harbinger" reveals the existence of the trans-dimensional Sphere Builders, whose moon-sized creations affect Enterprise throughout its season-long mission. Finally, the crucial appearances of blue-skinned Andorian Shran (Jeffrey Combs) bring both suspense and comic relief to the season's grim proceedings, adding depth and tentative alliance to Enterprise's pre-Federation politics--a crucial element that assumes greater importance with the jaw-dropping cliffhanger of "Zero Hour" and the surprises in store for season 4, which will bring Enterprise ever closer to the original Star Trek timeline. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

plot arc (the only other was babylon 5 and its shadow war season,aka lord of the rings in space) the mood setting of enterprise season 3 changed
from ooh ah explorers to really upset vengefull soldiers hell bent
on finding the xindi .. the character whose changed the most is archer
who went from go luck happy explorer to a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders, one of my favourite characters pops up namely the roguish commander shran . i really enjoyed the punch up between the miffed reed and cocky hayes
the episode with the vulcan ship turned in top a zombie episode which might please some viewers
in simbiont where tripp is cloned some viewers might remember a similar
voyager episode where tuvok and neelix are joined as one unique being in both cases janeway and archer have to say a agonising goodby to them both
as with all blue ray star trek episodes there is a lot of extras not included
in the dvd version , colour, picture and sound excellent
Quality of this bluray is awesome. Buy it!
An excellent Season, full of surprises and great acting, as the crew travel deep into the Expanse in search of the Xindi and the new weapon the Xindi are making.
There are some particularly strong episodes, that really makes the viewer think, such as "Similitude", where Phlox has to make a cloned version of Trip in order to save the real Trip. A good mixture of action and "thinking" type episodes are throughout this very strong season.
The actual DVD set, like the previous two, is fantastic. The episodes are crystal clear on screen, the packaging matches the previous two sets and looks fabulous, and the interactive menu screens are of the usual easy-to-navigate type.
The extras are excellent also. It's always nice to watch the small featurettes on behind-the-scenes, and get more input about the characters from the actors themselves and the writing crew. The outtakes are ALWAYS welcome too.
An enjoyable Season, and a great DVD set! 5 Stars!
Revisiting on Blu-ray has been a slight disappointment, perhaps tarnished by the generally poor picture quality by today's standards. TNG on Blu-Ray has a far better image quality throughout.
With so much at stake, I was hoping this season would raise the series above the disappointing second season. There were some very good episodes, but too many of them were still sub par. In fact, many I had figured out completely by the second commercial break. I was so bored it took my friends watching it with me to keep me going until the final episodes kicked the story into high gear and got me hooked again.
Die-hard Trekkies will want this set to complete their collection. Casual fans can just pass right on by and wait for the far superior final season.
