Starfleet had better start fitting the Enterprise NX-01 with seatbelts, because its intrepid crew are heading for a 'Shockwave.'
That's reportedly the title of the Enterprise first season finale, currently set to air on May 22. 'Shockwave' will begin shooting this Wednesday, April 27, under the supervision of veteran director Allan Kroeker.
Kroeker has helmed numerous installments of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, including the final episodes, 'What You Leave Behind' and 'Endgame.' In addition to directing 'Fight or Flight' and 'Rogue Planet' earlier this season, Kroeker has called the shots on series such as Roswell and Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda.
The Enterprise cast and crew were recently out on location filming the third-to-last episode of the season, entitled 'Desert Crossings.' As previously reported, this episode will feature guest appearances by 'Highlander' actor Clancy Brown as a charismatic alien leader, and real-life U.S.S. Enterprise crew members Timothy Whittington, Sara Elizabeth Pizzo, and Robert Pickering.
'Desert Crossings' was written by science advisor Andre Bormanis, based on a story he devised with co-creators Rick Berman and Brannon Braga. Bormanis penned 'Silent Enemy' earlier this season, in addition to Voyager episodes such as 'Human Error' and 'Imperfection.' The episode is currently scheduled to air May 8.
Please note that this information has not yet been officially confirmed by Paramount Pictures, and until then should be treated as you would any other rumour.
