UPN has premiered the trailer for Star Trek: Enterprise's "Countdown", which airs next Wednesday night.

During this episode, directed by Voyager's Tom Paris, Robert Duncan McNeill, from a script by Andre Bormanis & Chris Black, the Reptilians torture Sato in the hope that she can decipher the weapon's firing codes as Archer and other Xindi try to stop the weapon from reaching Earth.

The 20-second promo is available for download online courtesy of StarTrek.com and The Daily Trekker. For those with slower connections, here's a transcript:
