'Enterprise' season three - courtesy Mr. Vidiot, copyright Paramount PicturesUPN last night debuted a new Enterprise promo showing the first scenes from the show's third season.

Entitled "Captain's Log", the 30-second trailer is framed as a log entry by Captain Jonathan Archer in Enterprise's new briefing room, which has the luxury of chairs compared to the old mustering area on the bridge.

As Archer relates the events that led up to the NX-01's mission into the Delphic Expanse, various images of the Xindi, the new military officers (MACOs) and the Expanse itself appear on screen. At the end, the promo refers to the series as Star Trek Enterprise.

The video clip is available to download in MPEG format courtesy of Mr Vidiot. For those of you with slower connections, here's a transcript:
