Star Trek: Enterprise

Regeneration - S2-E23

Other mistake: Two Borg are discovered North of the Arctic Circle. One is covered in ice, the other encased in ice. Carbon dating shows the wreckage to be over 100 years old (to tie it in with Star Trek:First Contact). The Borg are inactive and unable to repair themselves until they are "defrosted". The temperature above the Arctic Circle doesn't usually drop below -100°F. The Borg have been shown to work very well in the vacuum of space which is 3-4K (roughly -454°F). If they can survive that, even being frozen in a solid block of ice would not slow them down. The nanites have to be in their "blood" and operate at the cellular level. That cannot be damaged by re-entry and the crash. [This is one of those entries that keeps being corrected and recorrected - I'll leave it up to people to make up their own minds.]

Captain Archer: We should be entering the nebula.
Subcommander T'Pol: The readings could be misleading.
Captain Archer: As Dr. Phlox would say - optimism.
Subcommander T'Pol: Optimism doesn't alter the laws of physics.

Regeneration - S2-E23

Trivia: A film reference to Star Trek: First Contact: Archer says something about a group of cybernetic creatures (The Borg), that tried to stop Cochrane from launching his mission into space that was stopped by a group of humanoids, that were also from the future (USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E).

Broken Bow (1) - S1-E1

Question: It's approximately 100 ly to Qunos. Captain Archer says it'll take four days. How long will it really take at warp 4.5?

Answer: Warp factor has always been inconsistent and hard to pinpoint, or there's too many episodes that contradict the conversion rates. Changes were made in converting warp factor into actual speed between TOS and TNG. It seems ENT reverted back to using TOS method, which is "warp factor cubed" equals how many times the speed of light they traveled. So warp 4.5 means 91.125 times the speed of light (c). Although in "Broken Bow", with the travels from Earth to Neptune and back in about six minutes means warp 4.5 is about 86*c. However, in "The Expanse" episode, warp 5 was 200*c (instead of 125). 1 ly at 91.125*c is about 4 days, but 100 ly would be 400 days.
