Re: Should I give Enterprise another chance?
They do a few "what if" type stories with "Twilight", "E2 (E squared)", and the Mirror Universe episode. Even the Temporal Cold War is sort of a bunch of "what ifs". So that helps ease the lack of a holodeck. I think part of the show's problem was they couldn't afford to go outdoors enough for location shooting. It gets claustrophobic with a bunch of ship shows in a row.
