The crew of the NX-01 will embark on a rescue mission an upcoming Enterprise episode, entitled 'The Breach'.

StarTrek.com yesterday released the below synopsis of the episode, currently scheduled to air on April 23:

Enterprise is asked to evacuate a group of Denobulan geologists from a world that has been taken over by a militant faction, and since they are located deep underground, the effort requires some treacherous spelunking by the rescue team. Meanwhile Phlox faces a dilemma when another evacuee, an Antaran afflicted with a fatal dose of radiation, refuses to be treated by a Denobulan because of very old bad blood between the two races.

The episode's story was by Trek newcomer Daniel McCarthy, writer and director of the film 'Irish Eyes,' with the teleplay penned by Enterprise co-executive producers Chris Black ('Cease Fire') and John Shiban ('Minefield'). Former Voyager cast member Robert Duncan McNeill (Tom Paris) directed the episode, his second Enterprise outing after last season's 'Cold Front'.

'The Breach' will feature the following guest actors:

Henry Stram's credits include roles in the films 'Jeffrey,' 'Sleepers' and 'Requiem for a Dream,' while Mark Chaet has featured in episodes of Malcolm in the Middle, The X-Files and ER.

A writer, director and editor as well as an actor, D.C. Douglas has appeared in Boston Common, ER and the film 'Under Siege 2.' Laura Putney's credits include episodes of JAG and First Monday, while Jamison Yang has guest starred in NYPD Blue and Charmed.

Production on 'The Breach' ran from Thursday, Feburary 5 to Friday, Februrary 14. As their characters have to rappel down a rock face to rescue the Denobulan geologists, Anthony Montgomery (Travis Mayweather), Connor Trinneer ('Trip' Tucker) and Dominic Keating (Malcolm Reed) were given special rock climbing training by Enterprise stunt co-ordinator Vince Deadrick, Jr.

While the trio did their training at Stoney Point near Los Angeles, the scenes were actually filmed on a cavern set constructed on the Paramount lot, with stunt doubles Shawn Crowder, Marty Murry and Korty Manns taking over for the more difficult shots.
