Re: ENTERPRISE SEASON 5 (Netflix)

A story from the Romulan war as a movie would be cool.

The entire freaking war as a movie would not be cool.

Didn't DS9 prove that wars can't be fought in two hours?
It also proved that war doesn't necessarily get ratings.

It really frustrates me that they want to do the Romulan War without the ENT cast!
I'd still go see it.
I never found the Enterprise cast all that engaging and would be perfectly happy with a Romulan War movie that excluded them. I'd be perfectly happy if it never acknowledged the existence of the series and did its own thing.

The Romulan War books by Michael Martin were brutally bad.

I'd be happy with some guest appearances. I don't need it to be ENT.

And yeah the books were.. kind of awkward.

It was so bad that it dragged down Voyager along with, while still remaining the top syndicated show.

I thoroughly enjoyed the second war in DS9, after that first war that the prophets snapped their fingers and fixed up

Star Trek: The Beginning (an aborted movie project that was in development during the end of Rick Berman's deal with Paramount).

You seem to have misunderstood. I didn't say war stories hurt DS9's ratings, I said they didn't help the show's ratings. And they didn't. DS9's best-rated season was its first; the later seasons were its worst.

What's been "well-analyzed?"

I'm not trying to be a douche, but your response, apparently meant to rebut my point, ended up supporting it.

^The contraction of the syndicated TV market has been well analyzed. It's causes are known, its effects are known. Suffice to say that the same phenomena happened to all the top syndicated programs--Baywatch, Babylon 5, Xena, Hercules, etc.

None of which has anything to do with my point. I wasn't arguing that war stories (or anything at all) caused a drop in DS9's ratings.
