Maybe I'm in a minority but I Like Star Trek: Enterprise

"I Like Star Trek: Enterprise" at least the first 2 seasons

And I liked that on this Veteran's day the episode I just watched happened to be one about averting a war. "Cease Fire"

1. Now that's a show that never came close to it's potential.

I watched it faithfully - hoping it would get better. And if finally did in it's last season - too late.

2. all of them took time

Hi,

All the Star Trek tv series took a bit of time to gel. Jonathon Frakes said in an interview that The Next Generation did not really come together until the 3rd season, when everything just started working as he put it.

It is usually this way with all tv series, the best years are the last few years of the series. Star Trek Enterprise was the same way, that last season was Great.

3. I always liked it as well.

It did take 3 seasons to get rolling. Season 4 was brilliant. My absolute favorite was the "dark universe" two part episode. I also loved the fact that we got to see a bunch of old school species like Andorrians, Gorn, Tellarites, and Orions.

I think Enterprise was robbed.

5. They were originally going to use a different one...

... and I actually saw a Paramount/UPN clip using it. Here is a reproduction of it by a fan.

13. That theme was in Star Trek: Generations.

I always thought it was a wonderful theme, and deserved to live on in a series. Perhaps this is silly, but I honestly think that Enterprise would have been more kindly received with that as a theme.

Loved the theme song also
But to each their own

Still gives me goosebumps...I was going to sing at my mother's funeral 5 years ago.

7. Ooh...so do I..Jolene Blalock is brilliant as T'Pol...

The second best Vulcan in the whole franchise. Roxanne Dawson
earned her chops in writing, producing and directing there on Enterprise.

Plus what's not to like about Scott Bakula?

14. She had me feeling that T'Pol was an older woman

who had a body that was young looking.

There was a mature, bemused and amused, quality to her interactions with the younger humans.

She never phoned it in and I shared her anger when the powers that be decided to erase Enterprise from Trek Canon. "Oh, it was just a virtual experience" my ass.

16. Actually, she is what I didn't like.

I watched some episode in which she was basically vengeful, war hungry and violent, in total contrast to the Vulcan philosophy. Since I'm not into pre-quels that don't even take the time to understand the series they are pre-queling, I got disenchanted. This was not the first thing that seemed to rewrite Star Trek history -- there was also the episode in which they came across the Ferengi, which was an "unknown" species when TNG encountered them. Just sloppy, sloppy writing overall I thought.

17. My favorite of all time is Hoshi…she made me realize how vulnerable we are going to be early on...

and she was anything but violent, even though she was both mentally and physically very strong.

18. How vulnerable who was going to?

Humans in space?

I liked how she had to do the same job as computers did in later Star Treks. that kind of kicks ass. Though in some episodes she seemed kind of ignored.

19. Well, you and I will probably not be around at early contact, but hopefully someone will and I hope

that concepts from shows like this Stark Trek will push technology and higher education along in terms of
what could happen in a first contact and early contact.

I bet a real live Hoshi would appreciate the down time.

8. I loved that series too.

I think it had a great build-up and conclusion and good character development throughout the whole series. I've seen it twice and was more impressed with it the second time through. I'll join you in that minority.

10. Time for a new Star Trek tv series

I doubt theres a single episode from any Startrek series that i havent seen, I thought Startrek Enterprise was great and was very disappointing when the show was cancelled. I'm having Startrek withdrawal syndrome,we need more Startrek.
Guess i'll have to settle for a movie every couple of years, the upcoming one looking great.

12. Oh, same here.

I thought that Enterprise did a GREAT job with that 2 parter. I thought the best thing about it was that they didn't try to have the two Archers meet - they just took an old Star Trek episode and used it to influence the alternate Enterprise universe. I thought it was awesome.

21. It was starting to get interesting in the 4th season

When they started focusing the series on the rise of the Federation and delving a bit more in to the backstory behind the original series is when I got interested Enterprise. I watched it off and on during the first two seasons but the third season seemed with that Xindi arc seemed like a colossal waste of time. Other than North Star and a couple other episodes I didn't really watch the 3rd season.
