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.

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. Both shows suffered from studio and network interference, just like TOS.

I do recall reading somewhere that the decision was made at the end of season 2 to axe Enterprise once they reached the syndication limit of about 100 episodes and reboot as a movie series, but IDK how truthful it was. Nor do I recall where I read it.

It would have been so great had they made a mini series about the Romulan War.

There's no way I'm buying all of Trek on blu-ray having just finished buying it all on dvd's 5 years ago.
I'm having a hard time justifying that as well.
As someone who has all of the first three Trek shows on DVD, I'd say the blus are worth an upgrade not just for the picture but for the features. TNG's has so far been great. Haven't seen ENT's, cause I'm not all that crazy for the first two seasons, but I know the features are done by the same guys who did TNG so it should be very illuminating. Kinda wish I had them.

Think I'll wait for the price to come down a bit

I really want to see the extras as this was the first time the whole gang got together since the filming of TATV.

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.

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.
