Enterprise's second-season finale, "The Expanse", will reportedly feature the return of the Klingons — and a disastrous attack on Earth.
According to sources, as the episode opens the Klingon Chancellor is smarting because Archer not only outwitted Duras and escaped confinement in Rura Penthe in "Judgment", but the captain also managed to escape from the bounty hunter who captured him when the Klingons put a price on his head in "Bounty". The Chancellor offers the disgraced Duras a change to regain his command (and his honour), by recapturing Archer.
But the Enterprise has more pressing matters to attend to — there's been an attack on Earth. Before the crew can reach Earth, Duras leads an attack on the NX-01, disabling the Starfleet ship's phaser cannons. The Klingons are just about to lead a boarding party when three Starfleet vessels (but only of the warp two variety) fly in, weapons blazing. Faced with such superior firepower, the Klingons are forced to withdraw.
When the crew finally reach Earth, the extent of the massive devastation is revealed — a large scar of destruction through Florida and Cuba...
The episode will also reportedly feature a romance for Jonathan Archer, in the form of Rebecca, who the NX-01 captain renews his relationship with while he is back on Earth.
Please note that this information is based on excerpts from an early draft of the script, and details will likely change before the episode enters production.
