Footage of Scott Bakula (Archer) and Jolene Blalock (T'Pol) at the Spacey Awards, where Star Trek: Enterprise was named favourite series while T'Pol was cited as favourite female television character, is now available online.

"This is fantastic. We've had a lot of recognition in our four years, but not necessarily a lot of awards per se," Bakula said, holding the show's award on the bridge of the NX-01, seen in video and images at VRRRM. On behalf of the studio, cast and crew, he thanked Canada's Space network for the honour and paid tribute to the show's fans: "Without you there wouldn't be an award for us, because we wouldn't even be here."

"It's been a pleasure playing T'Pol," declared Blalock. Appearing with her trophy and her puppy, she then presented the award for favourite male television character, saying that she was rooting for Bakula and laughing when the trophy went instead to Richard Dean Anderson of Stargate: SG-1. Blalock's portrayal of T'Pol was chosen over Lost's Kate Ryan, Battlestar Galactica's Number Six, Alias' Sydney Bristow and Smallville's Lana Lang.

Space, which has a complete listing of all the awards, has announced that the awards show will be aired again this Saturday and Sunday. Previous coverage may be found elsewhere at the Trek Nation.
