The 602 Club in the 2140s

Inside the 602 Club

The 602 Club was a bar in Mill Valley on Earth in the 22nd century. Many of the pilots and engineers involved in the NX Project based at the Warp Five Complex frequented this establishment, including Jonathan Archer, A.G. Robinson, Charles Tucker III, and Malcolm Reed. The walls of the 602 Club were decorated with many astronautical illustrations, including a portrait of Zefram Cochrane's warp drive prototype Phoenix, a DY-100 class sleeper ship, and USS Enterprise (XCV 330). (ENT: "Shuttlepod One", "First Flight")

One of the waitresses at the 602 Club, Ruby, was known to have been romantically involved with two crewmen from Enterprise NX-01, Charles Tucker III and Malcolm Reed. Tucker went so far as to call her "the one." (ENT: "Shuttlepod One")

Charles Tucker promised to buy the NX-01 engineering staff, as well as Captain Archer and T'Pol, a round at the 602 Club for their excellent work during the Delphic Expanse mission. (ENT: "Countdown")

Background information

It is likely that the 602 Club was named for a bar [1](X) near the University of Wisconsin–Madison, Rick Berman's alma mater. Berman, along with Brannon Braga, wrote the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "Shuttlepod One", which marks the first mention of the 602 Club. Both are credited with creating the series as well. The digits "602" are also the area code for Phoenix, Arizona, a possible reference to Zefram Cochrane's warp ship.

In the final draft script of "First Flight", the 602 Club was defined as "the modest Mill Valley watering hole Trip and Reed discussed in 'Shuttlepod One'." The club's interior was described as "A friendly neighborhood bar – the exposed brick walls reveal the place's more rustic roots, but the modern fixtures remind us this is the 22nd Century."

A display case seen in the 602 Club contained mission patches from various space shuttle orbiter missions and Apollo 8. These patches came from Michael Okuda's private collection. [2]

Two Pilsner glasses, seen inside the club, were sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. [3]

In Star Trek Online, a new version of the 602 Club designed to be a social zone can be visited as part of the Starfleet Academy area on Earth.
