Star Trek: Enterprise - Set Phasers To Stunning
, 3 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Star Trek - Enterprise: The Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Please, please forgive the opening gag...
Regardless, you should trust what I've got to say, as the subject of this review is worthy of your attention. If you're reading this, chances are you're considering purchasing the STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE - THE COMPLETE COLLECTION, right? Let me help you in your decision: you really, really should buy it! For not only is this damn brilliant television, it's also the best and most underrated incarnation of STAR TREK and the box set is glorious.
The packaging is the epitome of quality. The silver cube will dominate your collection, and inside are all four seasons of STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE in seperate individual plastic cases. Each season comes with an episode guide and historical background booklet, a disc of special features including documentaries, behind-the-scenes secrets, interviews, outtakes (which are hillarious, and there are lots of them) and timelines of STAR TREK history. All 98 episodes are presented in full widescreen and come four to a disc, starting with the amazing feature-length "Broken Bow" and concluding with the emotional "These Are The Voyages..." It's worth it for Season Three alone: a season-long story arc with some of the best cliffhangers in television history.
STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE itself deals with a pre-Kirk, pre-Federation galaxy, circa 2151. Captain Jonathan Archer (Scott Bakula) leads his fresh, inexperienced crew out into the stars aboard Earth's first Warp Five starship, the Enterprise NX-01 on a mission of peaceful exploration. It isn't long, however, before they are targetted by the sinister Suliban, the warrior Klingons and the misguided Xindi... all the while being told they're not ready for space travel by angry, short-tempered Vulcans.
It's absolutely addictive, well-written, gorgeous-looking, brilliantly-performed high quality television. Thinking of clicking "Add to Basket", are you? Well, since I started on a cheap gag, I'll end on one, too: beam up STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE - THE COMPLETE COLLECTION today!
Okay, I'll show myself out...
