STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE goes where no one has gone before yet again when it premieres this Friday. The show has switched to high definition digital video, and Paramount invited us to a special screening co-hosted by the camera's manufacturer, Sony, to see the final result Monday night. ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT weekend anchor Kevin Frazier emceed the festivities.
The showing of "Storm Front, Part I" in the Paramount Theater attracted a large crowd and much of the cast and crew. Among the cast attendees were Scott Bakula, Connor Trinneer, Dominic Keating, Linda Park, John Billingsley, and Anthony Montgomery. Producers Brannon Braga, Peter Lauritson, and Manny Coto took part in a panel discussion afterward, along with director photography Marvin Rush, director Allan Kroeker and two representatives from Sony.
"We've been examining and considering and weighing the possibilities of switching to digital for some time," producer Rick Berman said as he prefaced the episode. "But it really wasn't until this year that we discovered that with these Sony digital, high-def cameras that you'll see tonight, that we could give our audience the quality of image that they've been used to getting for all these years."
