Brannon Braga on a possible Season 5 through Netflix + More...

Hi folks, we did a special sit-down interview with Brannon Braga a while back in London and asked him about some of the hot-button topics including his thoughts on plots for a fifth season on Enterprise, the "Save Enterprise" fan campaign and his use of the Borg.

You can watch / read the full interview here: http://trekcore.com/blog/2013/03/exc...rview-part-ii/

Some very interesting points revealed including Braga's belief that a fifth season would still be feasible if enough support was garnered in an environment such as Netflix.

This is the second part (Part 1 doesn't focus on Enterprise too much, but in case you want to see that too - check here)

Re: Brannon Braga on a possible Season 5 through Netflix + More...

I'd LOVE for that to be true, about the power of Netflix being able to resurrect ENTERPRISE. Even for a two-hour reunion episode. That would make up for "These are the Voyages" and could focus on wrapping up the 22nd Century, without compromising screentime for any holodeck nonsense or irrelevant dilemma faced by two TNG guest-stars. Blimey when I think about more exciting last mission possibilities that could've secured the NX-01 crew a place in history, the show's creators went with the one least likely to have been taught to a class full of future generations.

The best way to have capped this series, would've been to show an elderly Admiral Archer at the launch ceremony for TOS U.S.S. Enterprise, (or visiting the ship under construction) and looking back at past events years apart. Condense the landmark stuff down to scenes told in flashback, like his crew's involvement in the Romulan War and Birth of the Federation. Throw in a few surprises, like a deathbed confession he lied and cheated in someway. Kept some details out of official records, so the alliance at the heart of all the other Star Trek series, could flourish.

I don't think TPTB pay much attention to Netflix (or indeed any) numbers outside the USA.

Re: Brannon Braga on a possible Season 5 through Netflix + More...

Sadly I have no Netflix in my country but if a new episode would show up on Netflix I'm sure it would appear in blu-ray too, and I would buy that first day. So bring it on, watch Enterprise on Netflix USA fans I would so love the Romulan Wars and Mirror universe episodes, and also other planned episodes like the one with the cloud city that was planned for season 5.

Maybe we should do a Netflix petition too ... In theory this is their mail address ():

While the chance of something like that ever happening is slim to non, I do think it would be pretty nifty. For one thing, it would be an excuse for a the few year jump that would propel ENT into the Romulan War years.

Re: Brannon Braga on a possible Season 5 through Netflix + More...

I think after the JJ Abrams saga is over a new Enterprise movie should be made that deals with the birth of the Federation and the Romulan Wars. I know the books dealt with it but many people havent read the books so they could come up with something similar or use the 3 movie script already written that was turned down when JJ took over the reins. I like the Abrams films but have always wondered what those movies could potentially have been like.

Enterprise is not viable as a film franchise. Netflix is the best anyone can hope for, and it's a stretch.

I dunno if a whole season is realistic, but a two-hour finale film would be great. I wonder what kind of support such a project might get on Kickstarter.

I think it would be great - series, mini-series or a two-hour proper finale, I'd like any - but only if all the cast were on board.

A much more worthy effort would be to start a petition and raise money for an "Erase All Episodes of "Enterprise" and Forget it Ever Existed!" campaign. It could be like a good old-fashioned Sunday Social and "Dixie Chicks" CD burning.

Netflix would be a great home for new episodes of "Enterprise" - If you were starved for poorly written sci-fi episodes recited by a select group of desperate looking actors huddled around a lone microphone, shivering in a largely empty, non-descript warehouse, and incorporating their own sound-effects while reciting dialogue.

Throw in a Kraft Services table consisting of Skittles, quartered day-old Bagels, and Tab and I figure Anthony Montgomery would sign on.

This this this, a million times this!
Fix the problems with the finale and we're all good.

Re: Brannon Braga on a possible Season 5 through Netflix + More...

OK, I'm serious, if there's any way we can start a petition or some kind of campaign, I say we do something to get the attention of Netflix. Maybe starting a Kickstarter wouldn't bring in enough money, but would make them take notice at least. Any other ideas?
