Crewman Daniels returns to take Captain Archer through time to stop the Suliban in Enterprise's first-season finale.
Starfleet orders Enterprise to return home when the crew seemingly causes the destruction of an alien planet they were exploring. Archer is visited by former crew member Daniels, who traveled through time to warn him that the Suliban are trying to sabotage Enterprise's mission, and the two travel through time to try to thwart the Suliban's plans.
'Shockwave' was written by Enterprise executive producers Rick Berman and Brannon Braga, and directed by Trek veteran Allan Kroeker.
The official site also released details of the episode's guest cast:
- John Fleck as Silik
- Matt Winston as Daniels
- Vaughn Armstrong as Admiral Forrest
- James Horan as Humanoid Figure
- Stephanie Erb as Receptionist
- David Lewis Hays as Tactical Crewman
Four of the characters have appeared in previous Enterprise episodes. Fleck's Silik and Horan's Humanoid Figure featured in 'Broken Bow' and 'Cold Front,' while Winston also reprises his Daniels role from 'Cold Front.'
This is Armstrong's sixth episode as Admiral Forrest, having appeared in 'Broken Bow,' 'Fortunate Son,' 'Shadows of P'Jem,' 'Fusion,' and 'Fallen Hero.' He also played the Klingon Captain in 'Sleeping Dogs' and the Kreetassan Captain in 'Vox Sola.'
Erb also has previous Trek experience, having featured as Liva in TNG's 'Man of the People.' Hays is new to the franchise, but has had small roles in 'Rules of Engagement' and the series Grounded For Life.
Executive producer Brannon Braga recently revealed the Temporal Cold War storyline would continue into season two. "The final episode will deal a lot with that, as will the first episode of next year, and you'll learn a lot more about it," he said.
Actor James Horan also dropped some hints about the mysterious Humanoid Figure, more popularly known as 'Future Guy.' "Kinda sounds like a bad guy, especially from the latest script I got, the cliffhanger final episode of the first season."
