This Star Trek saga takes place in the mid-22nd century. The Enterprise NX-01, the Starfleet’s first warp five starship, is under the guidance of Captain Jonathan Archer (played by Scott Bakula). Archer and his crew are charged with the exploration of space before the formation of the United Federation of Planets.
