Registry: Enterprise – NX-01
First Seen On: Enterprise (TV series: 2001-2005)
A strange beast, this one — the first starship to bear the name. This Enterprise was warping around the galaxy a full 100 years before Kirk’s — before the United Federation of Planets was even formed. And yet it looks far more modern than most of the ships that came after it. It has all the key elements that we’ve come to expect on any Enterprise: warp nacelles (the technical name for the engines) at the end of V-shaped stems, a deflector dish, and a saucer section. Commanded by Captain Jonathan Archer (played by Quantum Leap’s Scott Bakula), this small, fragile-looking proto-ship was never a huge hit with fans.
