Then why was Enterprise canceled again?
Over saturation.
No spin off of a spin off of a spin off ever does well.
The only one to ever do that was Norman Lear.(No wait, Archie's Place was a flop)
Even Robert Patterson former actor on CSI said he hated the idea that they were doing so many spin off's of CSI because it waters down the market.
"Happy Days" had 4 spin offs, does anyone remember the one about Fonzie's guardian angel?
Law & Order had 3, CI & Trial by Jury suffered due to over saturation.
How much of a concept can you put on TV before it becomes too much? Even Berman openly has said he didn't want to put ENT. into production until 3 years after Voy. ended because he knew the audience was saying enough is enough but Paramount forced his hand because they wanted to make more money off of Trek. Berman knew and he warned them. Especially with Trek, how far can you take a concept on a TV show before you start covering the same ground again?

If studios and producers know this fact, then it's factual proof the audience can complain all we wish but in the end those behind the camera still have the final word. We don't run production, we dont run TV. They do.
