The first images from the upcoming Enterprise episode, 'Strange New World', were posted online today.
As seen in the photo to the right (courtesy of StarTrek.com), the crew take a shuttlepod to a seemingly uninhabited Earth-like planet. Tucker convinces Archer to let the research team camp overnight on the planet, but the crew soon become infected with hallucinogenic flower pollen.
Although the Enterprise crew use a shuttlepod to reach the planet, the episode is also said to feature the use of the transporter. Apparently, a crewman will be beamed off the planet with rocks and leaves fused into his body (story).
The episode was written by Mike Sussman and Phyllis Strong from a story by Rick Berman and Brannon Braga. Directed by David Livingston, 'Strange New World' airs on October 10.
