Am I the only person that hated the Xindi story line?   I thought it might have been a great two parter, but an entire season?   I couldn't wait for that season to end.

That whole "Threat to Earth" never before mentioned was hard to accept.


Then the 7 species of Xindi can all be found at the pet store in the mall.


The Reptillians were right out of Galaxy Quest.


The Insectoids were a neat idea but they were only background players.


I really wished they had fleshed out the forming of the Federation.


The Andorian aspect of Enterprise was dead on we meet them there is no trust and slowly it formed.


This could have been done with each founding member species leading in to the Earth Romulan war.

@Trekwolf164:

You're right on all your points.  I'm glad I'm not the only one that felt that way.

I was cool with that, though I was not crazy about Commander Shran punching Archer like that, arms tied behind his back. I prefer the Klingon way, I kick your @$$ and you tell me ALL I want to know - truthfully.


I always party at Starbase 63!

I loved Shran   "The Andorion Miners Guild runs from no one."


Combs was such a great talent on DS 9 to have him in Enterprise to me was its best part.

I personally liked the Xindi season. It's not my favorite season of Enterprise like most fans though.


I personally like Season 2 the best. But Season 3 was really good I thought.


And really the Xindi didn't have to be mentioned again neccessarily. But if we ever get another Star Trek series, maybe it will be on the Enterprise J and we can see those Xindi crewmembers Daniels told Archer about.

Doesn't anyone agree the story line was too stretched out?  Not to beat a dead gorn, but it would have been a great two or three part show.  But over the season it became tiresome, and the story lines were slow.


I also liked Shran.  They could have spent more time developing that storyline. 


More Orion Slave Girls would have been nice too!  Something about a green babe.

I liked the xindi arc when it first aired but I don't like to watch the episodes now.  Far too dark.  And they seem like wasted time once you see what they did with season 4.

Yeah, I mean I like the Xindi, but it would've been nice if that season was mixed up more with other things. Sort of like how DS9 did with the Dominion War. How the Jem' Hadar came into the picture in Season 2, but we got a little bit at a time up to season 7 rather than all of that story in one season.


But I guess in places it can get slow. But I liked it overall. I just thought it was cool I guess.

@ wissa:  I agree.   Season 4 was my favoite.  More tie in with TOS, I think they intended to try and link it as much as possible since it was to be the last season.

Manny Cotto was a show runner in the 4th season it was his TOS knowledge that made it's way in to Enterprise.


I loved his episodes but it was to little to late for Enterprise.


How could Earth have been faced with total destruction and it is never mentioned in 40 years of Star Trek.


We heard about the Eugenics war we heard about the Romulan war.


Not one sentance about Floriada getting a Canyon in it from some talking pet shop in a section of Space we have never heard of before or again.


If they really wanted to just do a Science fiction series then they should have left Star Trek out of it all together

I enjoyed the Xindi concept as an alien grouping. I didn't like the expanse concept, especially because I was sick of time travel stories. Although I appreciate the season more now, I still think it was capitalizing on 911 and the war on terror and think the "earth is threatened" story line would have been better with romulans as the antagonists. Had the story been about romulans, it being a season long theme wouldn't have bothered me.

Had Romulan's been the threat  it would have fit in to canon perfectly

I enjoyed season 3 of Enterprise. Covering the Xindi was uniquely done.
