'Enterprise' Recurring Characters Revealed By Christian
June 16, 2001 - 6:44 PM

Even after filming on the Enterprise pilot started in May, producers were still tweaking the finer details of Captain Jonathan Archer's crew. Sources suggest we will be seeing at least four recurring crew members over the course of the season.

As previously reported, Enterprise will feature seven main characters, the names of which were locked down when shooting on the pilot began. However, at that time the rest of the Enterprise's duty roster was still in flux, as producers were still developing and casting the main recurring crew members that will be featured in the first season.

One character who did not survive this creative process was an Irishman named Lieutenant Regan, for which initial casting had already begun. However, he was replaced by one of the female characters listed below, presumably to improve the series' gender balance. As of mid-May, the following four actors had reportedly been cast as recurring characters in the show:

It is not known whether any of these characters will be appearing in the Enterprise pilot, 'Broken Bow,' or what the extent of their roles will be. Though they may well be featured in future storylines, these characters may also just be in the background to provide a sense of continuity for the viewer. In addition, while these four characters are currently planned to be recurring characters, if their initial performance is disappointing producers may also still decide not to bring back these characters for future episodes.

Thanks go out to Carl Stefanski and AntonyF for part of this report. As usual, please be aware that Paramount has made no announcements yet about Enterprise's recurring characters, and until then any news from unofficial sources should be treated as you would any rumour.
