So, how did "The Siege of AR-558" slip through?
I heard it was because they reduced it to one leg being blown off instead of two.
What is this about? Why does Gene envision a future where bombs don't totally maim you?
No enlightened human being would so disgrace his dignity by allowing a bomb to blow his legs off.

He had a bust of Gene in his office and he'd blindfold it as a symbol when he would give in and approve something he didn't think Gene would like.

ENT and VOY as individual series would have been better served if Paramount had stayed with the syndication route, rather than suddenly deciding to use them as linchpins for a new network that had little else of value.
When TNG started, the field was wide open to be exploited. During DS9's run, first-run syndication was a crowded market, and new networks were making the market smaller and smaller. By the time ENT came around, first-run syndication wasn't viable anymore.
