ET previews season 2 - courtesy MediaTrek.com, copyright Paramount Pictures Syndicated entertainment show Entertainment Tonight Thursday night showed the first footage of Enterprise's sophomore season.

Set to the Enterprise theme song, 'Faith of the Heart,' the segment included a brief scene with Hoshi, T'Pol and Trip in sickbay, as well as a glimpse of actors Scott Bakula (Jonathan Archer) and Dominic Keating (Malcolm Reed) diffusing a mine on the blue-screen set. This was presumably a scene from 'Minefield', the new season's third episode.

Reporter Mark Steines donned part of the bronze EVA suit with the assistance of star Scott Bakula, who then proceeded to show Steines how to act in weightless conditions.

The 23-second segment is available for download from MediaTrek.com. For those of you with slower net connections, here's a transcript:

[Text: 'Scott Bakula: Enterprise']
Bakula: "The biggest thing is that I want to talk slowly when I'm weightless."
[Steines pauses for a moment, then raises his finger.]
Steines: "Ah..."
[They then start to talk really slowly together, as they run in a slow, exaggerated manner.]
Bakula: "You... know... because... you're... moving... slowly."
