Polish your boots and ready your phase pistols - Enterprise is almost upon us! For those wanting more details to tide them over until the premiere, the official synopsis for 'Broken Bow' is now available.

StarTrek.com has now opened its Enterprise TV listings section, with a description, photos and guest cast list for 'Broken Bow.' Here's how the site describes the pilot episode:

After decades of being held back from deep space exploration by the Vulcans, the human race makes its first venture into interstellar travel with Captain Jonathan Archer at the helm of the Enterprise NX-01. The Enterprise crew's mission is to return an injured Klingon — the first the human race has ever encountered — to his people. But when a villainous race of aliens called the Suliban kidnap the Klingon, Archer and his crew must make an unexpected detour into another world to retrieve their precious cargo — and stave off a dangerous diplomatic interstellar crisis.

A full list of characters in the pilot has been released for the first time. Brief biographies of all the actors can be found below:

A clip from the episode, featuring Archer, Starfleet Admirals and Vulcan dignitaries, has also been posted. The footage is not new, as it was already included in the seven clips posted by Zap2it. A transcript can be found here.

The clip and more photos can be found on StarTrek.com's 'Broken Bow' page. Thanks to Mike for this!
