‘Enterprise’ set to take off

New 'Trek' boldly goes to the past

Paramount TV group preemed the latest installment of the “Star Trek” series, “Enterprise”, Thursday with an unspooling at the Parmount Studios Theater. Kerry McCluggage, chairman of the Paramount TV Group, hosted the event, which was attended by star Scott Bakula, and writer-creator-executive producers Rick Berman and Brannon Braga.

The premise of the series is the beginning of the now-decades old “Trek” mythology, with Bakula starring as Jonathan Archer, the first captain of the first Enterprise spaceship. The series is set only a mere 150 years in the future and countless alien species are along for the ride. Stirring up drama in the preem is a new evil alien race known as the Suliban, whose power structure is rumored to be loosely based on Afghanistan’s ruling power, the Taliban.

In the wake of dismal ratings for the last “Trek” series and a slowing down of the franchise, Berman and Braga aim for “Enterprise” to infuse new life in the series by incorporating more adult themes and offering viewers a new taste of the wonders of “Star Trek”. In the wake of cult hits like “Farscape”, which air on cable and are less hinged by censorship standards and budget constraints, Berman and Braga have a lot riding on this series, which they consider to be more true to the concept of the original series and it’s follow-up, “The Next Generation”, than their past two efforts, “Deep Space Nine” and “Voyager”.

“Enterprise” begins exploring strange new worlds and civilizations with a two-hour bow on stardate September 26, at 8pm.
