Attacked while exploring a new sector of space, Captain James T. Kirk and his crew find themselves thrust in the middle of a war. The USS Eagle, lost eight years before, is now in the clutches of a woman who bends starships and their captains to her will and has been reverse engineered into a fleet that is bent on domination and genocide. The Enterprise may be the only ship able to stop the Peshan homeworld from falling to Alersa and her enemy starfleet.
Guest starring BarBara Luna and Paul R. Sieber, Enemy: Starfleet was written by prolific Trek novelist Dave Galanter and award-winning fanfiction author Patty Wright. Principal photography took place in June 2008, with location filming in autumn 2009. Directed by Ben Tolpin and Vic Mignogna, the episode introduces Brandon Stacy as "Spock" and Jonathan Zungre as "Chekov".
Visual effects were provided by the D.A.V.E. School at Universal Studios in Florida, Juve Vique and Tobias Richter of Cologne, Germany. The episode has been edited by Brian Q. Kelley in Los Angeles, CA.
Veteran actress and Star Trek alumni Barbara Luna ("Marlena Moreau" of "Mirror, Mirror") joined the cast of "Enemy: Starfleet" as as a space terrorist that steals a starship and retro-engineers it to create a marauding fleet. "Luna" had this to say about her experience: "...my discovery was that your special love and devotion for Star Trek with a loyalty that lives in your hearts, which gives you a very deep connection to each other, allowing everyone in your presence to feel that joy. ...it is an experience worth treasuring forever..."
The production of the episode, written by prolific Trek novelist Dave Galanter and award winning fanfic writer Patty Wright, was hampered by acts of nature, but Senior Executive Producer James Cawley is thrilled with what was accomplished. "What I'm seeing is flawless: the best we've ever done," he said. "This is Star Trek."
