After a surprise attack on Earth leaves over seven million people dead, Captain Jonathan archer (Scott Bakula) and the crew of the Enterprise swear to find those responsible – the Xindi. Taking off into the uncharted region known as the Delphic Expanse, the crew of the Enterprise must hunt down the Xindi and stop them from enacting their ultimate plan: the total destruction of humanity. Along the way, they travel to the year 2004 to prevent a bioweapon attack, fend off the mysterious Sphere-Builders, and even meet their own descendants due to a wormhole mishap – all leading up to a desperate race back to Earth to prevent its destruction.
Season 3 of Enterprise introduced the much-disputed Xindi storyline. Some loved it. Some hated it. Personally, I enjoyed it at first, but thought it dragged on way too long. The Xindi themselves were a fascinating set of races to learn about – so many diverse aliens that came from one planet – who became unique villains.
Standout episodes were: “North Star” when the Enterprise discover a Human settlement in the Delphic Expanse that seems to be stuck in the Old West. “Similitude” – when Trip is injured and falls into a coma, a clone is created as a last ditch effort to save him. “Carpenter Street” – when the crew travels back to 2004 to stop a Xindi attack. But the vast majority of the season is spent on the Xindi and their superweapon. I actually missed several of these episodes when it was originally on air. So it was nice to go back and catch up. Though, it still felt like the Xindi storyline went on too long. I prefer the standalone episodes of the earlier series. But I still enjoy and appreciate this cast and their chemistry. The good outweighed the negative aspects of the show. So, I gladly watch it again and again. This blu ray edition offers a variety of special features detailed below. I’m a sucker for outtakes and deleted scenes. And I enjoyed the Archival Mission Logs for Connor Trinneer and the Xindi Saga begins. A couple of the featurettes are in HD as well.
