Nudity, Sex scenes, Violence, Slave girls

Great series but not suitable for children. You can find out all the episodes which feature nudity and skip those episodes I suppose. It won't change the storyline too much.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (10 ):

This spin-off series is a very conscious attempt to recreate the feeling of Star Trek: The Original Series, but there's no getting around the fact that the show lacks the same punch as its predecessors. Liberating it from the heavy canon of the franchise gives the series the ability to react to new situations in ways that can be thought-provoking to the viewer -- without requiring the cast to wonder, "What would Kirk or Picard do?" And though Star Trek: Enterprise doesn't have to adhere to all the elements of the Star Trek canon, it's still part of that rather stuffy universe, which can make it difficult for the show to go beyond simple storytelling. It's entertaining and spins a good yarn, but it sometimes lacks depth.
