Those idiots, didn't they know how hot Stephen Culp is?!

How fantastic would it be to get Culp in a new Trek series. I nominate him for first gay captain.
Let's start a letter-writing campaign.

S3 and S4 of Enterprise are better than any Voyager season and showed the franchise finally getting back on track.

Before the sickeningly bad final episode of course.

These two "another chance" threads, every time I look at this forum I have "all we are saying.. is give ENT a chance" in my head.

Haha. Yeah, I didn't realize there was another thread with almost exactly the same title.

I'm enjoying ENT, but after this watch through I don't see myself going back and watching many episodes. Maybe I'll feel different after I finish.

Re: I'm giving Enterprise another chance

I don't hate ENT and I liked S4. And yet...

It got to be too much fanwank for me.
As if they knew this was gonna be the last ST for a while, their last chance, so let's throw in everything including the kitchen sink.

Mirror Universe, Gorn, T'Pau, Tholians, Andorians, Tellarites, TOS Defiant, Sehlats, Eugenics War Augments, goateed Vulcans, Pike-like facial injuries, TOS Klingons, Surak... it goes on and on. Too much, too late, too fast.

I love this stuff as much as the next fan. But too often it seemed like tossing it all in at the end rather than including certain things for a purpose.

Bring back the Gorn? Sure, I've been waiting for decades.
As done in ENT? Gratuitous last minute no-purpose fanwank.

Sounds like I'm bitching, but I do like ENT and the TOS stuff.

Personally I am not a big fan of season 4 for the same reasons mentioned above. It felt too contrived to me.

Hey hey hey of course we saw sehlats, they are like squirrels on Vulcan!

That's why Vulcans are so uptight. Repressing their terror.

Just saw "Impulse" (Christ these titles suck)...I quite enjoy 'video-game episodes'.

I also like how the series makes crew deaths few and far between. That way, when it does happen, it has more impact.

Very true. I want to say that Scott Bakula had something to do with that stemming all the way back to "Strange New World." Crewman Ethan Novakovich was apparantly written to die but Bakula pushed to have him recover in sickbay saying something to the effect of it being too early to start the red shirt phenomena.
