[show]Because the show is 100 years before Kirk, some old technology has reappeared: - flip-open communicators - manual sliders on the transporter - the science station viewfinder - Most of the sound effects for the Enterprise come from original 1960s Star Trek: The Original Series series - including all the bridge sounds, doors, communicator chirps, and most of the panel sounds. - Instead of shields, the Enterprise has polarized hull plating and instead of hand-held phasers, the crew are introduced to phase pistols. - There are no photon torpedoes, simply torpedoes. (Until the start of season 3) - The transporter has only recently been approved for transporting bio-matter (people)...and no one on the crew trusts it. It has 4 docking doors for shuttlepods. The design of 22nd century Enterprise NX-01 bears a striking resemblance to the 24th century Akira Class starship, first introduced in Star Trek: First Contact. Enterprise carries a designation of NX-01 which, according to established canon, indicates a prototype starship. It also indicates the first Starfleet starship to use this naming convention. Enterprise is the first Starfleet vessel to use the new warp 5 engine developed by Zefram Cochrane and Jonathan Archer's father, Henry.
- Although produced in widescreen since 2001 in anticipation of HDTV, actual broadcast of the series in HDTV by UPN did not begin until the fall of 2003, midway through season 3.
