Let me know if they explain why the Xindi had to take up an entire season.

I know the ratings went down in season 2. I guess the writers wanted to go in a different approach for season 3. I thought season 4 was the best season for Enterprise.



I wonder if Enterprise is to the ST series what SGU was to the SG series. Maybe not as dark but a different feel overall.

That's enough to see the difference, the first 2 had a kind of tongue in cheek sense of humor, but SGU was all dark and serious, I liked it a lot but it did look very different than the rest of series. I wonder if that's what it was with Enterprise, it didn't have that same light vibrant confidence all the other ST series had.

Interesting but I would say no to that because Enterprise had the feel of what Star Trek was all about. I guess you could make the argument DS9 or Voyager as the ST series what SGU was to the SG series. DS9 for the reason it takes place on a Space station and not on a starship like the rest of the series. Voyager for both shows about people being stuck on a space ship far from home.

idk, I think it's the prime directive talk that links all the others together, where Enterprise didn't have that to lean on when decision had to be made, everything was left at Archer discretion, and I mean everything, which gave it a different feel. Plus, it was more military than research. The whole NX class ships were.

I think that's why DS9 was given the 'Defiant' to advance Sisko to Capt. and to give them the mobility of ship travel. But I agree, DS9 was different since it seem to explore some deeper issues, not only race but things in decision making. I like he was a tinkerer by nature.

Dude's head would explode at today's Comic-Con convention. lol

But he makes some interesting points which I think got addressed in later series. And yeah ST is still military-ish, people want to see explosions.

Been watching Enterprise and it doesn't feel all that "military" then any of all the other shows. They are really just curious about space, going to other planets, and making relations with new races. Yes the show is setting up the whole prime directive and even Archer is following the Vulcans guide lines on encountering new cultures.

I think for some fans there was a mild disconnect. There was this discord between humans and vulcans, it wasn't as "magical" because of the technology limits of it's supposed time period, the uniforms, wasn't exactly peace on earth and good will for all men yet, I know that's corny but I always wonder about that no need for money thing in the ST universe. I'm wondering, if it ever comes out, this next series will bridge the gap in the difference.

For the uniforms and the design of Enterprise I remember they wanted the feel of being on a submarine. Yeah every show after the next generation there were fans showing their disconnection of the new shows like DS9 and Voyager. Yeah never understood how the no need for money worked out.

No, I can't seem to get a ticket. It's rigged I tell ya'.


Honestly I don't see how people do it, you really don't know if you can get a ticket for the most part with it's lottery style. Gotta know the right people I guess. Reminds me I better check my email, there's a system I haven't put much of an effort into, every year I say I'm going to do and never do.

I've gone to several other things surrounding it, hanging out near the bay is sooooooo relaxing even with all the people mosying around, and some things are just fun.

R.I.P Kellie Waymire 1967-2003 sad

Appeared in three episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise (2001) as Elizabeth Cutler. This character was intended to be further developed and possibly even achieve "regular" status, but this plan was cut short by Waymire's fatal illness. Never knew she passed away, so young.

I guess it's better than camping out on the street for days and still not getting in. You know in an hour or 2 if you make it or not, over the phone.

For me the biggest problem I had is there are way to many episodes in which the crew gets caputured and it becomes a rescue mission. I mean you have one episode the crew gets caputured and rescued then 2 episodes later the crew gets caputured and rescued. Honestly lazy writing.

Season 2 has way to many episodes in which the crew gets caputured and it becomes a rescue mission, Episode 8 "The Communicator" Archer and Reed are captured Episode 11 "Precious Cargo" Tucker gets captured Episode 15 "Cease Fire" Archer and T'Pol get captured Episode 17 "Canamar" Archer and Tucker get captured Episode 19 "Judgement" Archer is caputured by the Klingons Episode 25 "Bounty" once again Archer is caputured.

Season 1 Episode 6 "Tera Nova" Reed gets caputured - Episode 7 "The Andorian Incident" Archer, T'pol and Tucker get captured - Episode 15 "Shadows of P'Jem" Archer and T'pol get captured - Episode 19 "Acqusistion" the whole crew is captured by the Ferengi - Episode 21 "Detained" Archer and Mayweather are caputured - Episode 24 "Desert Crossing" Archer and Tucker get caputured
