Re: Is this the Enterprise theme that could have been?

The only problem I have with "Wherever You Will Go" as the Enterprise opening credits song is that it doesn't fit the style of the series.

If Enterprise were done in The WB style, like Smallville or Birds of Prey, then "Wherever You Will Go" would have fit. But as long as the series were written in the ponderous, retro-80s dramatic style that was the way Star Trek was written, "Wherever You Will Go" simply doesn't fit because it promises something the series can't deliver -- being modern and hip. The problem with the franchise a decade ago is that while production values had improved, the storytelling style was still mired in the 1980s. "Wherever You Will Go" would have been a mismatch with Enterprise.
