* The episode "The Forge" from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''. Captain Archer and Ambassador Soval, who've never seen eye to eye at any point in the series, stand over the coffin of [[spoiler: Admiral Forrest]], who gave his life to save Soval. Soval, with his newfound respect for [[spoiler: Forrest]], comforts Archer on the loss of his friend. This marks a turning point in the relationship between Humans and Vulcans.

* Call its theme music cheesy and/or contrary to ''Star Trek'' tradition if you want, but the show's opening sequence showing humanity's progress from sea travel to flight to space exploration had a ''very'' Heartwarming hope-for-the-future impact on Season One viewers, particularly in contrast to the 9/11 gloom that dominated the media at the time. The more so, in that all but the last three innovations shown (a space orbiter, the ''Phoenix'', and the NX-01) already existed in RealLife.

* In "Horizon," Travis learns that his family's cargo ship, ''Horizon'', will be passing near them and decides to visit. Unfortunately, he learns that his father has died several weeks ago. Travis tells Archer how his father had been very disappointed when he joined Starfleet, as he had been groomed to take command of ''Horizon''. Archer, however, comforts him by recalling the recommendation letter from Mr. Mayweather when he was looking at candidates for helmsman. All it said was this: "I've never met a more natural stick-and-rudder man, and you'll be a fool to not pick my son." For a character who was essentially an AdvertisedExtra, it's an extremely effective moment for Travis.

* The end of "Storm Front, Part II." After a year of fighting their way through the Expanse to stop the Xindi from destroying Earth, after the "WTF?" ending of "Zero Hour," and after two episodes of fighting alien Nazis (again, "WTF?"), it's nice to see our battered and exhausted heroes ''finally'' return home.

** Until a line from Hoshi suggests that he ''did'' tell.
---> '''T'Pol:''' I'm surprised you're not exhausted from all the beds you've jumped into recently.\\
'''Hoshi:''' Commander Tucker told me you could use a few pointers in that area.

* While it's only briefly mentioned, and rather offhandedly. It's pretty awesome that the Klingon Empire will become a member of the United Federation of planets by the 26th century. It also confirms the [[StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Orgainians]] theory that humans and Klingons would become true friends. Nice to see the whole thing come full circle.

* This page wouldn't be complete without mentioning Archer's "Lets explore it together" speech from "Terra Prime." Pitch perfect example of this trope as well as Rousing Speech and capped by Soval leading a Slow Clap.

** Especially heartwarming considering that when the show started, they ''hated'' each other. Now they're FireForgedFriends.

-->"I'm going to ask all of you to think back to the day when this ship was first launched. We were explorers then. When all this is over, when Earth is safe, I want you to get back to that job. There are four hundred billion stars in our galaxy we've only explored a tiny fraction. You have a lot of work to do. Of all the captains who will sit in this chair, I can't imagine any of them being more proud than I am right now.

-->"Up until about a hundred years ago, there was one question that burned in every Human, that made us study the stars and dream of traveling to them. Are we alone? Our generation is privileged to know the answer to that question. We are all explorers driven to know what's over the horizon, what's beyond our own shores. And yet the more I've experienced, the more I've learned that no matter how far we travel, or how fast we get there, the most profound discoveries are not necessarily beyond that next star. They're within us, woven into the threads that bind us, all of us, to each other. A final frontier begins in this hall. Let's explore it together."
** There's also Phlox's admission to Archer, as baby Elizabeth's condition worsens.
--->"When you invited me to join this crew, I thought it would be an interesting... diversion, for a few months; some time away from the complications of family, which on Denobula can be extremely complicated. I didn't expect to gain another family. [[TearJerker/StarTrekEnterprise It hurts as if she were my child]]."



** In a way it also helps in that, in a way, it eliminates the fears and worries of the Klingon scientists and lawyers about the warrior class taking over the Empire.

* In "Minefield," while trying to defuse the mine, Archer and Reed begin discussing the former's [[AFatherToHisMen style of command]].
-->'''Reed:''' Frankly, sir from my point of view, that kind of socializing has no place on a starship.\\
'''Archer:''' I had a C.O. once, felt the same way. "They're your crew, not your friends." I thought about that a lot... when I took this command, but then I realized this is not a typical mission. We could be out here for years. All we have to depend on... is each other.
