I don't hate ENT, but it's easily my least favorite series.
And silly as you may think you were being Frontier
, at least for me, that definitely didn't help.
For me, the primary reason was that it felt like the Franchise Story Generator was running out of steam. Also, why didn't we get a new Franchise Story Generator? Isn't this a prequel? Isn't this the big chance to shake things up and get away from the "perfect" humans of the 24th century? Of course there are places we're going to have to fill in the dots, and of course it's going to make some people unhappy. That's the danger of a prequel. But if done right, it could be awesome.
