  • TV Guide Description: "The ship is attacked by an unidentified vessel. In other events, Archer wants to give Reed a personalized birthday present."

  • Rumoured to feature an unknown ship trailing the Enterprise, not responding to any attempts to communicate. Completely outclassed, Archer orders the Enterprise to return to Jupiter to install the cannons that Starfleet was unable to install because of the ship's swift departure to Qo'noS. But even as the ship rushed back to Jupiter, Tucker and Reed work overtime to try and install the weapons themselves and get some kind of defense against the alien ship, which is continuing its stealth attacks. (November 04, 2001 - TrekToday)

  • Dominic Keating: "We've got one episode coming up, 'Silent Enemy,' where we kick some serious butt." (November 12, 2001 - TrekToday)
