Re: What if the PTB had been paying attention?

They definitely were paying attention to the ratings.

That's why they brought in the Borg Barbie.
Back then I never considered not watching/enjoying a Star Trek series - it was completly incomprehensible.

Enterprise managed the unthinkable and weaned me off, (in fact I think it changed the whole addictive nature of TV for me, so in part I am greatful) but truth is I've never enjoyed Star Trek as much since it soured the milk.

But there was a time where I worried if they'd try a similar trick with Enterprise - like add a hot 18-25 year old blonde - and wondered how strong my resolve would be. Back then it would have been enough, probably.

Season 4 did push Voyager up a gear, as much as Worf did for DS9.
