Fans curious about the NX-01 mission change promised by Rick Berman will only have to wait until "The Expanse", the Trek head honcho revealed in a new interview about the season finale.

"I think our final episode of the season is going to be quite startling because we're going to do a cliffhanger that will put a new twist on the series as it enters its third year," Berman told the British Star Trek Monthly (via StarTrekUK.com. "I don't really want to get specific about it, but we're not talking about a tiny change. We're talking about a change that is going to, to some degree, alter our mission and, to some degree, change the tone of the series. We're very excited by it. This idea will be introduced partially in the final episode of this season and then more dramatically dealt with in the opener next season."

But before "The Expanse," fans will still be able to look forward to eight other new episodes. Berman talked about four of them:

As for the producers' plans for Enterprise's third season, Berman shrouded himself in secrecy, commenting only that it "would be very possible" more NX-Class vessels would appear on the show, and that while also possible, "nothing is planned" regarding an appearance by the Remans. "We've discussed everything from a young Sarek to Q to Kirk. There are a lot of things in the mill. I'd love to work with John [De Lancie] again. I adore him. All sorts of ideas are in discussion now."

More comments from Berman, including his thoughts on how online script leaks affected the performance of Star Trek: Nemesis, can be found in issue 103 of Star Trek Monthly, now available in the UK. In addition, further experts can be read at StarTrek UK.
