UPN has premiered the trailer for Star Trek: Enterprise's "Borderland", which airs next Friday night.

During this episode, written by Ken LaZebnik and directed by David Livingston, a group of genetically engineered humans escape from exile and try to trigger a war between humans and Klingons. Charged with stopping the Augments, Archer brings aboard their creator, Dr. Arik Soong, and takes him into the region of space between the Klingon Empire and the Orion Syndicate known as the Borderland, where the two must work together to rescue abducted crewmembers.

The 20-second promo is available for download online courtesy of StarTrek.com and The Daily Trekker. For those with slower connections, here's a transcript:
