Anyone think there's any credibility to the suggestion, which is apparently accredited to Jolene Blalock, that part of the reason for Enterprise's cancellation was to facilitate the creation of the Abramsverse?
Okay, time to climb back into my closet.
No. Enterprise was canceled in 2005, the 09 movie didn't start production until 2007.
I think that perhaps the split between CBS/Paramount over the rights -might- have contributed to it some, but Enterprise's worst problem was that no one was watching it. If they were getting the ratings, I promise that hurdle would've been cleared.
