After some confusion over the premiere date, Australia's Nine network today confirmed Enterprise will definitely debut this month.
The network will air the series premiere 'Broken Bow' at 10:30 p.m. on February 20, just over two weeks away.
Initially the series had been scheduled to debut at 8:30 p.m. this Saturday evening, but was delayed possibly to avoid clashing with the opening of the Winter Olympics.
The late-night timeslot will be familiar to Australian fans, as the network routinely screens The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager as well as series such as Farscape and Roswell at 11:00 p.m. or later.
Australian critics have already begun to chime in with their thoughts on the series. "If you persevere beyond the dreadful song, you're in for a Trekker treat," wrote the Courier Mail's Nick Bray. "Enterprise maintains the [Star Trek] standard and also continues to deliver those wholesome messages with a slightly irritating, distinctly American accent."
Thanks to Aaron Thorpe for some of this!
