Here's how the story began....

In the nine decades following Zefram Cochrane's visionary warp flight in space and the First Contact that followed, the human race has been slowly guided by the Vulcans toward developing the Warp Five engine. Mankind is at last able to explore the virgin depths of space with a revolutionary new starship, the Enterprise NX-01, under the command of Captain Jonathan Archer. Plans to launch Enterprise are moved up when a Klingon courier is shot down by unknown assailants and crash-lands in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. Feeling that the Vulcans have been condescending toward mankind for years, Archer insists it's the humans' responsibility to return the injured Klingon to his homeworld alive. Archer is fully backed by Starfleet Command, and the Vulcans' objections fall upon deaf ears.
With the ship high above Earth in spacedock, Archer has three days to assemble his crew, consisting of the charming southern chief engineer, Commander Charles "Trip" Tucker III; the strong and wary tactical officer, Lieutenant Malcolm Reed; the eager helmsman who grew up in space, Ensign Travis Mayweather; the linguistically talented communications officer, Ensign Hoshi Sato; and for his chief medical officer, Archer recruits the unconventional alien Dr. Phlox. For the ship's first mission, the Vulcans request that an advisor from their ranks be present, and they assign the highly intelligent but stubborn Sub-commander T'Pol. Anticipation and nerves run high as the ship is fitted with the latest Starfleet technology, such as the recently approved transporter, which no one is very eager to test on themselves. Quickly the historic launch arrives, and the Starship Enterprise does indeed, in the words of Dr. Cochrane, "go boldly where no man has gone before," warping towards planet Kronos.
As Enterprise speeds along her way, the crew all learn more about each other and strong bonds begin to form. Under Dr. Phlox's care, the injured Klingon, Klaang, regains consciousness and Hoshi tries to communicate with him. Suddenly the ship experiences a power failure and unknown chameleon-like aliens invade and kidnap Klaang from Sickbay. Dr. Phlox examines a captured alien and discovers he's a Suliban who has been genetically altered. With the Klingon gone, T'Pol advises Archer to return the ship to Earth, but he adamantly refuses. He then learns from the tight-lipped Vulcan that Klaang's last stop before crashing on Earth was a planet called Rigel X, so Archer orders Mayweather to set a course for the Rigel system. Meanwhile, a Suliban named Silik interrogates Klaang, trying to find out why he was on Rigel X meeting with a Suliban female named Sarin. At Rigel X, the Enterprise away team discovers an amazing multitude of alien life at a trading complex there...
