Star Trek: Enterprise takes place in the year 2151, approximately one
hundred years before the time of Captain James T. Kirk, Mr. Spock, and
Dr. McCoy.  Humans are still learning the ropes of space travel
and the Enterprise NX-01 becomes the first Starfleet starship equipped
with a Warp 5 engine.  With this engine, the Enterprise has the
capability to explore deep space.  Commanded by Captain Jonathan
Archer, the brave crew of the starship sets out on a revolutionary
voyage to uncover new life and new civilizations.  Highlights from
the fourth season include: “In a Mirror, Darkly” where in the mirror
universe, a Commander Archer mutinies against Captain Forrest in order
to capture a future Earth ship; “The Aenar” in which Archer visits the
icy Andorian homeworld to find an Andorian subspecies called the Aenar;
and “Storm Front” where the Enterprise crew is transported back in time
to Earth 1944, where they discover events of World War II as altered by
the Temporal Cold War. 

The entire twenty-two episodes from the 2004-2005 season plus the
special features are contained on six discs.  (Disc One: Storm
Front, Part I; Storm Front, Part II; Home; Borderland.  Disc Two:
Cold Station 12; The Augments; The Forge; Awakening.  Disc Three:
Kir’Shara; Daedalus; Observer Effect; Babel One.  Disc Four:
United; The Aenar; Affliction; Divergence.  Disc Five: Bound; In a
Mirror, Darkly, Part I; In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II; Demons. 
Disc Six: Terra Prime; These are the Voyages…; Special Features).

Season Four’s video quality is excellent.  Images are crisp with
sharp detail.  Colors are rich and dark with fully saturated
hues.  Black levels are consistently deep throughout. 
Picture defect mastering is nicely done with no major flaws or
defects.  The overall audio quality is very good.  The
soundtrack mix favors the forward soundstage.  Dialogue is natural
sounding and securely placed in the center channel.  The surround
channels are selectively utilized for both ambient effects and the
music score.  The LFE channel is tight and punchy.
