Although the capabilities of this vessel vastly limit its travel radius, it has been suggested that this vessel ''may be'' the ''[[Horizon (ship)|Horizon]]'' that discovered the planet [[Sigma Iotia II]] in [[2168]]. This is believed, in part, due to the fact that the dialog from "[[A Piece of the Action]]" ([[TOS]]) never clarified the origins of that ''Horizon'', outside of being an Earth starship. Interestingly, this connection to [[TOS]] was not lost on the set decorators of ''[[ENT|Enterprise]]'' - in "[[Horizon]]," a hard bound copy of a book beginning with the title ''Chicago Gangs'' can be briefly glimpsed on a bookshelf in Travis' quarters aboard his old ship.

For the Daedalus-class starship, please see USS Horizon.

The ECS Horizon was a J-class freighter commissioned in 2102, of the Earth Cargo Service under the command of Paul Mayweather.

History Edit

In 2126, Travis Mayweather was born aboard the Horizon halfway between Draylax and Vega colony. (ENT: "Broken Bow", "Fortunate Son", "Dead Stop")

ECS Horizon bridge

The ECS Horizon's bridge

In 2141, the Horizon encountered a Deltan ship. Travis Mayweather, who was fifteen at the time, described the group of Deltans as "very attractive" and "very open". (ENT: "Bound") The Horizon once came under attack by Nausicaan pirates; it barely escaped in one piece. (ENT: "Fortunate Son")

In January 2153, the Horizon was attacked by the same pirates that attacked the ECS Constellation many weeks prior. Mayweather managed to upgrade the ship's plasma cannons by connecting them directly to the ship's impulse engines. This, combined with his expert piloting skills, allowed the Horizon to withstand the attack. (ENT: "Horizon")

Among the planets visited by the ECS Horizon were:

Appendices Edit

Background information Edit

The Horizon made only a single appearance, in "Horizon". In the final draft script of that episode, the craft was described as "space-worn," as of 2153. The ship was rendered as a CGI model, designed by John Eaves and built by Brandon MacDougall at Eden FX. [1](X)

The assignment patch for the Horizon was created by Anthony Fredrickson, a design task provided to him by Michael Okuda. "Because this was the Horizon, I did a star dropping behind the horizon and an old-time sailing ship with a star glowing at the top of its mast," Fredrickson recalled. (Star Trek: Communicator issue 144, p. 36)

According to the final draft script of "Fight or Flight" (dated 1 May 2001), the Horizon made a two light year journey from Andoria to a planet called Bylaran Prime. In a revised final draft of the episode's script (dated 27 June 2001), Horizon's starting point in this trip was renamed to a newly invented planet called Lavinius. The scene in which the ship was referred to as having undertaken its voyage between Lavinius and Bylaran Prime was filmed but then deleted. The deleted scene can be found on ENT Season 1 DVD.

Apocrypha Edit

According to the Pocket ENT novel Kobayashi Maru, the ECS Horizon was the starship Horizon that visited Sigma Iotia II, as mentioned in "A Piece of the Action". The fate of the Horizon was unclear; by the end of the book, it was deemed missing and presumed destroyed by Romulan action. This connection to the Original Series episode was also suggested by the set decoration of the ship in "Horizon", as a hard-bound copy of a book beginning with the title Chicago Gangs can be briefly glimpsed on a bookshelf in Travis' quarters aboard the ship.
