enterprise may have had better ratings then many suspect.
Even if that were true, what does that have to do with anything? TNG had good ratings too. Hell, Home Improvement had phenomenal ratings, and Netflix isn't bringing that back.

Enterprise is too expensive for Netflix, its a simple as that. It's 3 original shows now are a fraction of the cost of what Enterprise would be to make. CBS is not going to return to the past, it will make a new Star Trek series at some point that may or may not reference past Trek.
House of Cards cost a reported $100 million to produce two seasons worth of episodes (two season of 13, I believe). That isn't chump change.

Of course, that's a prestige show with a motion picture director (David Fincer) and two major motion picture actors (Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright) participating in it. A new season of Enterprise wouldn't warrant the same level of investment.

it may show up in some of the interviews with people from the show.
I used to have a lot of this on a former computer.
but I very much remember the article about how enterprise was being hurt by the way the ratings were being counted then.

shrug
I am sure if the Netflix people were interested they would have better means then me to track down ratings info.

...sure... I'll bite... as long as Trip's alive and Malcolm has a promotion... to kick@$$ Commander at least! ...and we keep Porthos! (...ooh, I can just hear the CBS guys, "Find me a younger Keating!") In that case, do I get to keep Dominic?

'fraction' may not have been the best term, but its still going to be higher to produce than those existing shows.

100 mill divided by 26 episodes is 3.8 mill. Enterprise (adding a 7 year inflation rate or so) would be about 5 mill on average per episode. Thats about 130 million or so.

That said, the episode number could be reduced, also there could be partnering and distribution agreements that could help offset the cost. Netflix would not want to shoulder that cost alone.

Re: Drexler's Bring Enterprise To Netflix Campaign

Chris, both these threads are pretty creaky, with no new posts for months until yours today. And the link you posted in the other thread seems to be saying that there's nothing new going on.

I suggest you start a new thread, include links to these two old ones, and bring everyone up to speed about the Netflix Facebook Campaign, to generate some fresh discussion. Okay?

Re: Drexler's Bring Enterprise To Netflix Campaign

Oh well. Well...no, not really. I guess this more of a cry for help!

It's always "gone midnight" late and I never seem to find the time. If I ever start a thread, I prefer to spend a while on it on. Rather than just a couple sentences and get out.

How about meeting me halfway and retitling the other thread? Maybe I can comeback and add an update to that?

Hon, old threads are old. It's time to start fresh. A couple sentences is better than none, so get to it.
