review by
Mike Haberfelner



About a century before the events of the original Star Trek: A Klingon, Klaang (Tommy 'Tiny' Lister), is found in a field, badly wounded. Now the earthlings have never seen a Klingon before, but the Vulcans, Earth's only interstellar connection with an emassy on the planet, have, and they want to send Klaang's corpse back to the homeworld. But Captain Archer (Scott Bakula) is deadset against it, since Klaang is still alive and can quite possibly be brought back to good health. So he suggests to bring Klaang back to the Klingon home planet and in the process also test the starship Enterprise, the first of its series that can reach Warp 5. Grudgingly the Vulcans agree, but only on the condition that Archer accepts one of theirs, T'Pol (Jolene Blalock), as his second-in-command. So Archer quickly assembles a crew - and it's off to the Klingon homeworld ... but before you know it, the Klingon is stolen from right under our heroes' noses by someone or something unknown. The Enterprise follow the track of the ship they believe to have the Klingon to a space station where they soon get into a fight with an alien race, the Suliban, but they also meet Sarin (Melinda Clarke), a Suliban spy who had passed on vital information to Klaang for him to deliver to his home planet. Soon our heroes have to leave the space station in a hurry and under fire, but they find a trail to the Suliban vessel that has abducted Klaang to Rigel 10, a gas giant where the Suliban have a base beneath its gas surface. They manage to free Klaang, but somehow Archer is left behind, and is ultimately only saved because T'Pol takes it upon her to test the teleporter the first time on a human being just to save him ...

 

The by then 6th series of the Star Trek franchise was to serve as a prequel series to all others to come, and that's a blessing and a curse simultaneously, a blessing because it can see outer space untainted by epic story arcs and doesn't have to align with other series' continuities, but a curse because too much has to be left unbroken, has to reference to later series.

As for the opening two-parter, it's a solid piece of science fiction, with Scott Bakula making a good captain, but at the same time the rest of the crew, with the exception of T'Pol, remains colourless, and the story as such lacks some urgency and is further bogged down by its references to series set later in the timeline. Now it's not at all bad in the traditional sense of the word, it moves steadily and features enough action to keep things interesting, it just lacks any real greatness.
