Yeah... I kind of feel like Enterprise is Star Trek for Dummies. Compared to the other series, this one seems decidedly low-brow; like it's catering to a dumber-than-average audience whose interest is only held by fisticuffs and boobs.
This is sort of obvious when they originally billed the series as Enterprise
, without the Star Trek:
prefix. Apparently it was an attempt to draw in viewers who wouldn't watch something with "Star Trek" in the title, but it also served as just another slap in the face for loyal Trek fans. All such a plan could have achieved was to trick unsuspecting new viewers into watching it, who would then be mad at being suckered: "Enterprise, that sounds interesting-- WTF!? This is just Star Trek! Those lying bastards!"
