    Default Khaaaaaan!!! - Enterprise Canceled!!

    http://www.startrek.com/startrek/vie...icle/9469.html

    Yep, it's now official. Enterpise will finish out it's season and shut down production. It just goes to show that after 38 years, Paramount is still run by dipshits. It didn't help when my local affiliate move the show to MIDNIGHT on Saturdays.

    To be fair, the series zig-zagged all over the place. Hopefully Berman will step back and let some fresh blood come in. They should take a hint from SciFi's revamped "Battlestar Gallactica".

    This reminds me when Whammo was sold and the dipshits didn't know how to sell Frisbees.

    Enterprise may have had a chance on another network.

    The writers just mostly suck now. They need to fire Berman and co and get new people if they want to do any future Trek shows/movies.

    Personally, I never was a big fan of Enterprise. Like you said, it was all over the place. I quit watching it last season. Another reason why I never watched it was b/c I never got into the characters for lack of a better word. In the previous ones, I rooted (for lack of a better word) for characters. I found them humorous and enjoyed episodes that were centered around them (Data/Worf/Odo/Quark/Tuvok for example). On Enterprise, I never connected with any of the characters. Christ, I can't name more than one on the show. Personally, I think they should do a show on Riker and his new crew/ship. I think that has some potential.

    I think the whole ship-based plot structure has run out of steam. How long have new Trek episodes been on? 18 years since TNG first aired? That's an awful long time. Plus much of that time two of those four different shows overlapped (and there were four feature films), too, so in my mind it made it seem even longer and more redundant.

    I say give it a break for five years or more. And come up with a different concept.

    They were toying with a Starfleet Academy, that has possibilities. A Dawson's Creek meets Paper Chase in outer space with hot chicks. That's Star Trek.

    In fact, hot chicks were the main eliment that made the origonal so great. It's hard to get the average person into SciFi but they'll watch a show with hot wimenz on it, even if they are green.

    There were a lot of better idea they could have gone with rather than what they picked. A Captain Sulu show, the already mentioned academy one. And Berman's new movie idea is terrible. A Captain Riker movie with a new ship would be way better, plus they could pluck various characters from the other series to be on his new ship. But these fools ran out of good idea long ago.

    I never watched any episodes of this show. I stopped watching new Star Trek episodes after seeing a few Voyager shows, I didn't like that show.

    I watched every Next Generation show though, that was the best t.v. show ever imo.

    See, if I were in charge this is what I'd do.

    I'd put out an open call to all the cool directors out there and give them the mission of taking their favorite Star Trek origonal series episode and stretching it out into a feature length movie.
    Then they could cast cool actors as Kirk, Spock and the gang.

    I'd love to see what Quinten Tarrantino could do with "The Amok Time".

    Yea the Riker idea would be a good one. I'm not sure if they should pluck old characters from other shows though-granted, it would be interesting to have Tuvok, Nog, O'Brien, etc on the ship. Might not be a bad idea to just get all new characters and go from there. Or maybe mix it up-have some old and some new.
