UPN yesterday released the trailer for next week's Enterprise episode, entitled 'Civilization'.

In the episode, Archer and members of his crew go undercover on a less-advanced Earth-like planet, only to discover that a disease is affecting the population. While on the away mission, Archer finds himself attracted to Riann, an alien scientist.

Courtesy of and Outpost6, a digitised version of the promo is available for download. For those of you with slower connections, here's a transcript:


[The viewscreen shows a ship crossing an ocean.]
[Archer on the bridge.]
Archer: "It's almost like travelling back in time."
[Tucker on the bridge, staring at the viewscreen. Archer and Reed are also present.]
Tucker: "I cannot wait to get down there."
[The viewscreen zooms in on a street in a small town.]
[T'Pol talking on the bridge.]
T'Pol: "You'd be recognised as outsiders."
[Archer and Tucker in a shuttlepod, in medieval-style clothes.]
Archer: (off-screen) "Not if we look like them."
[Shot of T'Pol also dressed like the planet's inhabitants.]
[The shuttlepod heads towards the planet's surface.]
[Native inhabitants gathered together at night.]
[Archer talking with Riann, a female alien.]
Riann: "People are dying and I can't determine why."
[T'Pol and Sato walking around in cloaks at night.]
[Archer and Tucker also wearing cloaks.]
[Archer and Riann in her laboratory.]
Archer: "If you tell us what you know, we might be able to help."
[Close-up of Riann looking up from her work.]
[T'Pol confronts Archer.]
T'Pol: "The longer you remain, the more you risk cultural contamination."
[Archer impulsively leans over and kisses Riann.]
[A fight in the bushes at night.]
[Archer talks back to T'Pol.]
Archer: "These people are suffering from something a lot worse than cultural contamination."
[Close-up of a hand peeling a layer of skin off a face.]
[Archer approaches Riann.]
Archer: "There are lots of inhabited planets to see..."
[Riann turns around to face Archer.]
[Archer and Riann move closer together.]
Archer: "...but I doubt many will be this memorable."
[Archer and Riann share a kiss.]
