According to new reports, Enterprise will firmly establish its retro setting from the onset; with the first episode featuring a homage to Star Trek's history.
A SFX magazine reporter (via the Great Link) in LA claimed the show will feature "a shot of green skinned Orion slave girls. They have been given a modern twist however, as they will be seen to snatch beautiful CGI’d butterflies from the air with their tongues."
The Orion slave girls first appeared in the Original Series Pilot 'The cage. The above picture of Susan Oliver as Vina has since gone on to become one of the most famous images from the Original Series. In the series, the Commodore described the aliens as: "They're like animals. Vicious. Seductive. They say no human male can resist them." It is presently not known whether the creatures will be featured more often in Enterprise.
The SFX reporter also revealed that shooting is taking place near Redondo Beach in Los Angeles. A historic town on the Southern California coast, the town boasts a pleasure pier, historical museum and a memorial dedicated to surfer George Freeth. The harbour and beach are popular filming locations, and can be seen in shows such as Baywatch, L.A Heat, and Pacific Blue.You can find more information on the resort here.
