Ive often wondered what wouldve happened had Enterprise been a TNG style success and seen out its 7 years on tv, so heres a fun pitch for an alternate Trek film that couldve come out summer 2009 (the year after the tv show wouldve ended)- as with ST09 it would’ve been 7 years since Nemesis. any similarity to ST09 is purely coincidental
Following its successful 10 year mission, the refitted NX01 is relaunched to confront a new threat to the newly formed UFPs outer defenses where they discover an advanced ship of unknown design has destroyed several federation ships and outposts. As they engage they realise they are seriously outmatched and flee but are pursued, take on heavy damage and are about to be destroyed when they are suddenly engulfed by a violently unstable anomaly - emerging in the late 24th century. There they find a future where the federation is in a desperate all out war with an advanced romulan empire led by a crazed revenge driven warlord. With the help of a future Enterprise captain, Archer and his crew discover the ship which attacked them was from an unknown part of the galaxy and had the ability to create unstable quantum holes in space. Found by Romulans, they commandeered it back to the mid 22nd century to destroy the federation in its infancy, but were destroyed by the unstable anomaly they created when the NX01 unwittingly passed through and was thrown into the future. However Romulan ships of that period recovered debris/telemetry from the ship which was enough to slowly advance their empire to the point where they are imminently about to destroy the federation in the 24th century...
The crews of both Enterprises must work together along with a legendary vulcan former starfleet officer in order to save the future and the past..
