Damage? Bullshit.
Yes, damage. Enterprise was in no small way responsible for Trek going comatose - that's damage!

I love the show.
Fine by me.

And if you don't like it don't watch it.
That is exactly what I and the majority of Trek fans did - we stopped watching en mass. To the point where it was the first Trek series in 35-40 years to be cancelled. Again, damage. It's failure tainted and scared the brand.

By objective measures and standards Berman and Braga failed. For that failure they should apologize.

Also, they were not motivated by the ideals of creating art, but rather to produce a "product" and extend a brand. As a consumer of that product, and devotee of that brand, I am very much within my rights to voice my displeasure when I feel it fails to meet my standards for quality and excellence as well as to call upon those responsible for a perceived loss of quality to apologize for their failure (and Enterprise by the standard to which it was born and held to was an unmitigated failure).
