It's a shame it got cancelled.  It was a more down to earth (lol come on thats funny) feel and more of a beginning feel. 


Love Enterprise......fool'in if you don't.

For me, the most interesting part of ENT is the fact, that they didn't know everything then. They were curious, made mistakes, learned from them and were eager to meet just everyone they could find. It's raw and the technology was not as sophisticated as in VOY or TNG. This gave more room to the characters and the solutions they had to find. And they had one of the best shows of the ST franchise - at least in my opinion: Carbon Creek.

Enterprise is the most expensive looking Star Trek show although DS9 is my favorite.

Enterprise had a strong cast and very likable characters. Also some of its stories were great, especially some of the first and second season one-episode stories, like the one where they find that automated repair station. I should also mention that certain parts of longer stories such as the "Xindhi Arc" were spectacular. Enterprise was as good as anything that's ever been on television.


Did I mention Subcommander T'pol?

Loved Enterprise.Fantastic series. I feel however that the show has been unfairly panned by critics.

I really love Enterprise. I'm so sad they don't show it on TV anymore. I really don't like watching stuff on the Internet. It's the first Star Trek series I got into. I guess I'll just have to get the DVDs.

While I have enjoyed all the Star Trek series I have encountered in one way or another, I find that Enterprise is turning out to be my favorite! I like the exploration aspect, they are figuring things out, and everything is new and exciting. All the new species they come across and ethical dilemmas they face are a challenge and they must work through them while learning a new language or custom. It shows humans as passionate and empathetic, problem solvers and quick on their feet. All of this takes place pre Prime Directive and that gives a lot of responsibility to Archer, forcing him to set boundaries but not loose site of what he considers human values.   I really like the dynamics with Dr. Phlox and T'Pol, the crew is always learning from them but perusing the very human trait of being nosey.  I found myself being drawn in to the characters and actually laughing out loud; like when Trip get nipples on his wrist and finds out he is pregnant or when Captain Archer refuses listen to T’Pol’s protocol or recommendation yet again. So I give a two thumbs up to Star Trek Enterprise and the Crew who is truly “Boldly going where no man has gone before!”

My wife and I are two episodes away from finishing the entire series, courtesy of Netflix. I remember occasional episodes, but never watched all four season in order until now. I am really impressed, and I am already anticipating some sadness when its over. I find the characters engaging and charming. I loved the introduction of some classic Trek elements (like some cultural info on the Tellarites and Andorians).



Overall, I would say its a nice bridge between our world and the Star Trek that we've loved for so long.


People should give it a chance.

I've been a long-time Trek fan, but until discovering this site's video database I have only had limited access to any series other than TOS. I'm just beginning watching the 4th season and have really enjoyed this series...perhaps even more than what little bit of TNG I got to watch way back in the pre-internet days.


While the special effects, set design, makeup and soforth..the "chrome", as it were, has been on par with what I would expect of a Trek motion picture, what sets this series apart for me is the real down-to-earth real-people vibe that is projected when we get a glimpse of crewmen doing routine ship duties, Phlox treating people for relatively minor aliments and injuries, the ship's chef serving up pecan pie or pizza, or the Captain trying to keep his beagle from getting too much cheese. None of those things really do much to advance the story, but when they occur with consistancy, it makes the whole experience feel more personal. It's kind of like the difference between being a pampered houseguest in a beautiful home and being kept unaware of whatever might be troubling your host; and being in the home of a close friend where you know where the drinking glasses are kept, how to jiggle the toilet handle when it won't stop running, and which cat likes to be petted.


As for the theme music, it kind of took me by surprise at first. It's nothing like any other series, but it has grown on me...well, the FIRST theme music has grown on me, that is. I read somewhere that the song was orignially to be sung by Rod Stewart, which I can totally imagine being brilliant. The lyrics fit the series quite well, and the imagery is appropriately inspiring. The second iteration with the upbeat guitar track feels a bit too "busy" and detracts too much from the lyrics and main melody. (Yeah..I'm a music nerd too LOL)


The only thing I find troubling about ENT is the number of opportunities the writers have seized (if not entirely manufactured) to get T'pol nearly naked. She has a nice figure and all, and I can see how this would be a selling point for MANY viewers, but it just seems a bit overdone. The romance between T'pol and Trip has been fun to watch as it evolves, and I've got no problem at all with nakedness, so long as it's just not done gratuitously for the ratings. Point of fact I am glad to see that, unlike TOS, sexuality of other species is dealt with openly and even-handedly in this series. I just finished watching Se4ep4 "Borderland" in which Archer gets his first look at the quintessential green Orion slave girl, and I wondered "What would Kirk do?".

I personally think every new series of ST has had it share of bashing. The big difference now is the world wide web, we're not restricted to the views of our local surrounding. Add to that the actual cultural trend of feeling self important by having to state a pro or contra vote on about anything. Like some kind of self centered Roman kaiser who is to cast a thumbs up or down after every gladiator game.


I like enterprise, living here in Europe I had to actually buy the DVD set since it hasn't even played on the networks I have on my tv.


Did I like everything? No, and guess what - I think that is totally acceptable. Better yet, after having watched the dvd extras and behind the scene stuff it all made a lot more sense. Sometimes somebody else's vision is different to our own, yet that doesn't mean his or her vision is bad or wrong.


 


The biggest problem however is not the narrow mindedness of today's viewers but the unforgiving rating systems of the networks. Let's face it, sci-fi in general although popular has always been something of a niche thing. So putting it up against the majority vote of the rating system will almost always end up in a cancellation.


How many good sci-fi shows did already get the boot despite excellent episodes?


It is inherent of the genre to have a margin of understanding before being able to actually grasp it. 


Let's face it, sci-fi lovers have always been a minority.


Make it so.

I am completely with you, my favorite used to be TNG. Have not been able to really get into DS9 or TOS, I am currently watching DS9, but have not really set down and watched TOS. (Liked Voyager, it was pretty good). I have Netflix, so I can pretty well watch them all. But am on my 2nd time through Enterprise. I like how the time is set 90 years after first contact, and how it shows humanity starting out. Also how it shows the formation of The United Federation of Planets, I could sit and type at this computer all day about Enterprise, even though I just recently discovered it on Netflix. I had just finished TNG, (witch I have watched since I can remember) and notice Enterprise and started it. I will admit, that for me the first couple episodes started out kinda slow, just wasn't what I was used to I guess. But Now I am wating it throw a 2nd time and will a 3rd..... If I can get past my wife lol Star Trek of any kind drives her nuts, all the more added to my plessure of watching it. As I said I am "one of the few" Enterprise fans, but since I had seen it, I have been hooked.
