Enterprise is set to throw viewers a curve ball when Captain Archer wakes up in the future in "Twilight".

StarTrek.com today released the below plot synopsis for the episode, currently scheduled to air on November 5:

A spatial distortion leaves Archer unable to form any new long-term memories. Years in the future, he wakes up one morning and is stunned to learn the outcome of the human-Xindi conflict.

"Twilight" was directed by former Voyager actor Robert Duncan McNeill, his third Enterprise episode after "The Breach" and "Cold Front". Co-producer Mike Sussman ("Regeneration") penned the episode.

The following guest actors will appear in the episode:

Gary Graham returns for his sixth appearance as Vulcan Ambassador Soval, a role he has played since the premiere episode, "Broken Bow". He was most recently seen in last season's finale, "The Expanse".

Brett Rickaby's credits include guest appearances in Judging Amy, Angel, JAG and HBO's new series, Carnivale. Richard Anthony Crenna played the recurring role of Agent Baxter in Roswell's first season, and has also appeared in The Guardian and Chicago Hope.

Principal photography on "Twilight" wrapped on Friday, September 19, after a seven-day shoot that was interrupted by the death of first assistant director Jerry Fleck. Filming was adjourned on Monday, September 15, after the cast and crew learned of their comrade's passing.

The shoot involved plenty of chopping and changing, as sets and cast members were redressed and made over to depict Enterprise and its crew in several different time periods. Not even the captain's faithful beagle was exempt from all the changes, with one scene requiring an "old Porthos". Several action scenes were filmed for the episode, including one in which Enterprise is boarded by a host of Xindi-Reptilians.
