  • In the mid-22nd century, the Earth ship Enterprise is launched under the command of Captain Jonathan Archer. When the crew rescues an alien from a crashed spaceship, Earth gets its first look at the alien's race - the Klingons. Archer and his crew must walk a fine line as they attempt to communicate with the Klingon pilot, whose language is completely unknown, and whose homeworld wants him back. Is this the beginning of friendship...or interstellar war?

  • 2151. Starfleet has constructed its first vessel that is capable of exploring the universe and the launch of Enterprise is imminent. Then two alien races land in a cornfield near Broken Bow, Oklahoma. A Klingon is being chased by two yellow-skinned creatures. The Klingon gets rid of the two, but not of a farmer, who shoots him with a plasma rifle. Back at Starfleet headquarters the Vulcans, who have been advising and restraining the human race since Dr. Zefram Cochrane invented the plasma engine almost 100 years ago, announce that they will take the Klingon, Klaang, back to his home world Kronos. They urge the humans to postpone the launch of Enterprise. But for the first time Starfleet will not listen to the Vulcans and the decision is made to let Enterprise bring back Klaang. Barely underway Enterprise' systems fail and the ship is entered by the yellow-skinned aliens.

  • Archer, Trip, T'Pol and Hoshi have been captured, but it turns out this group of Sulibans is lead by Sarin, the person Klaang last spoke to before crash landing on earth. She tells Klaang was carrying an important message to Kronos that must prevent a breakout of civil war in the Klingon Empire. But another group of Suliban attack and before dying she urges Archer to find Klaang. The four humans escape from the planet, but Archer gets wounded in the leg. He loses consciousness and T'Pol announces she is taking command of Enterprise. To everybody's surprise she modifies the sensors so that Enterprise can track the ship that captured Klaang.

  • In 2151, in Broken Bow, Oklahoma, a farmer shoots the Klingon Klaang with his plasma rifle after the explosion of a methane store in his farm and the Klingon is sent to the Starfleet Hospital. The Vulcan ambassador Soval proposes to unplug the life support system and bring the corpse of Klaang to his warrior empire in planet Kronos with honor. However, Captain Jonathan Archer proposes to go with the Enterprise in her first voyage and bring back Klaang alive to his home planet. Jonathan invites Ensign Hoshi Sato and Dr. Phlox, who is treating Klaang, to complete his crew, and the Vulcan Sub-Commander T'Pol is assigned to participate in the dangerous first mission of Enterprise. When the equipment of the starship is shut-down, Klaang is kidnapped by Sulibans after a shooting in the hospital. After the autopsy of the Suliban killed in the shooting, Captain Archer is informed by Dr. Phlox that the alien was actually a mutant, altered in a sophisticated genetic engineering process. T'Pol modifies the sensors of the Enterprise to track the Suliban spacecraft until she reaches planet Riger X.
