Captain Kirk goes mad in “The Enterprise Incident,” premiering this weekend
Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) seemingly goes insane in the remastered version of “The Enterprise Incident,” premiering this weekend in nationwide syndication. Kirk orders the Enterprise across the Neutral Zone, where it is captured by Romulan forces. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) goes aboard a Romulan ship in a desperate bid to save his ship and his captain’s life, but the Vulcan officer finds himself strangely drawn to the beautiful commander of the Romulan fleet (Joanne Linville).
Episode highlights include one of Star Trek’s featured appearances of the feared Klingon Battle Cruiser, and the only time that it is seen commanded by Romulan forces. In the remastered version of the episode, the iconic Klingon ship now sports the signature Romulan bird-of-prey markings, first seen in “The Balance of Terror.” The remastered episode also reintroduces the original Romulan ship design, now flying alongside with its larger Klingon-styled brethren.
The remastered version of “The Enterprise Incident” features all-new visual effects by CBS Digital and premieres during the weekend of April 5, 2008. The original episode was first aired in September, 1968, and was written by D.C. Fontana and directed by John Meredyth Lucas. Star Trek was created by Gene Roddenberry and is distributed in nationwide syndication by CBS Paramount Television.
