- Trek semi-regulars Foundation Imaging (a company which had been working in special effects since its involvement in the first season of sci-fi series Babylon 5), was dropped on the debut of Star Trek: Enterprise's second season. Instead Eden FX took over all the effects work to become the new leading effects house for the TV series.
- During Star Trek: Enterprise's first run it was the most special effects-laden television show on the networks, with a reported 2,700 effects shots in the first season alone. Roughly 300 in the two hour pilot and an average of 100 per episode. Season Two surpassed this number with a reported 2,900 visual effect. The average budget for each episode of Enterprise in its first season was $3,500,000. Due to both the success of the show and more creative technology required for further seasons, the budget was increased to $5,000,000 starting with "Shockwave Part II".
