I have heard many people scream about it, so I was wondering what you guys thought of it.


Personally, I liked it. People say it was a wasted season and it's bad that it was just one story, but wasn't the domminion war the same way? Anyway, I was just wondering.

I didn't like the setup for it, but I did like the arc, the temporal cold war and the test on the target were not good ideas, but I did like the rest of what they did that season.  Yes, DS9 had an even longer war story arc than Enterprise, but that is part of the double standard among the Enterprise bashers.

Yes the setup with the Xindi was poor. They needed to have some kind of link to them in the series or episodes before. A part from that it was not that bad overall, having both good and bad points during its run.


DS9 is the same story when it comes to the war but they used ideas to help break up the main story. For example when Bashier and Gurak are on the holodeck and the other officers become part of the programme.

Wonderful suspence filled season. One of Star Trek's best ever. Those that complain don't like Star Trek for what it has to offer.


Some of Star Trek best episodes ever! Similitude, Twilight, etc.


Incredibly well written, acted and produced.


I just found this great Star Trek MB!!  photo ac1685424929087bf1b7e7e0d734f861.jpg

Loved it. My second favorite season of Star Trek ever. I was never a huge fan of the Temporal Cold War, but then, I'm always a bit put off by time-travel story archs in Star Trek in general... however, the character archs it created, the depth it created in the existing characters, all very well done. 

I miss ENT so much because it took a lot more risks than the other series'. It was the first series to really innovate and grow Star Trek since TOS.

I found the season worked better watching the episodes closer together, than watching it in real time over the course of an entire season. I sort of felt this epic, underdog battle mirrored the fight the show was making to stay on the air. I consider it one of the best of all the 28 seasons of the franchise (along with TOS 1, TNG 3 & DS9 6).

I really liked it. Not only was the story gripping, but it paved the way for so much stuff in Season 4 - the Trip/T'Pol romance, the Terra Prime uprising, the Vulcan invasion of Andoria, and Archer's troubled conscience. All great stuff.

I liked it. If there ever is a new series, it should include a xindi officer.

This is a really good point... I can't imagine the agony of watching it once a week for a whole year. I was a huge fan of 24, and I just couldn't handle that, so I'd DVR them until the season was over and watch all at once, and then eventually just started waiting a year for the thing to come out on DVD.


I first watched this season over the course of maybe 2 weeks on Netflix. I'm willing to bet that would almost universally result in a better response.

The time spent on the "Xindi" was the biggest waste I have ever seen.

There was plenty of 'history' from TOS that they could have made some good stories there, but I wasn't really impressed with the Xindi story line.

Yes, there was a lot of history to draw on, but would you really want Enterprise to keep going to the well for direct TOS references?  They did that in DS9, and how many people were annoyed that TNG was so quick to draw a direct correlation with the first regular length episode?  I do think that they should have done more with the Romulan war, but the NX-01 was the first warp 5 ship from Earth, and unfortunately, we only got to see its first 4 years, and I wouldn't have wanted to see them jump into all of the established stuff too close together.  It is pathetic that they went with the Klingons right from the first episode.  That is another reason that I really like the Xindi arc Enterprise season 3 is the only season out of the 28 (30 if you include TAS) that does not feature the Klingons (other than a few references).

I liked it - but as another poster mentioned I watched it over the course of two weeks so seeing them back to back to back was nice.  With that said I'm sure it would have worked over the course of a season.

Let's make a small version of our weapon to destroy Earth and test it on..... Earth...... We are a smart high technological society but we could not figure out that there would be a response..... THAT was poorly written. The rest of the Xindi arc was great and fun to watch.
