    Because many Trekkers like to think of their fellow fans as a sophisticated, forward-looking group?

    As I said, there are people out there that seem personally invested in seeing this fail. :p

    TOS had the benefit of growing popularity after cancellation so that the cast was welcomed back with open arms. Enterprise has a small fanbase. Large enough for blu-ray sales, but that's about it. I think if this takes off, it will because of Trek purists who want some vestige of the prime-continuity to live on will back it, even if they didn't particularly like Enterprise. I'm part of that club.

    Just being realistic.

    Why with Trek's renewed popularity would I want to go back to the show that twisted the knife put in by Nemesis and killed the franchise?

    Not me, but many would argue Voyager went to the kitchen and fetched the knife!

    How much influence does Drexler have? He was in VFX and makeup, nowhere near the producers of the show. Has he talked with Berman & Braga about this?

    :guffaw:

    Drexler's dog probably has more pull with CBS than those two.

    Nah, Voyager didn't set the franchise up for failure... they did fail to keep that knife out of reach of the kids though. Bad Voyager, bad!

    No, but 23 days kinda is.

    Page was started on 03/26/2013.

    IIRC, Leslie Moonves hates Berman with a fiery passion... And Braga has become TV's synonym for failure (every show he worked on since VOY crashed and burned).

    Set against the age of the universe, I'd say it's within the margin for error.

    This was a response from the stuff (I think Jen) on the campaing page on facebook to Armando J. Arviso:"
    Star Trek Enterprise Season 5 - Netflix campaign At the risk of repeating myself (and I really don't mind doing so) yes there is some real progress. Both Netflix and CBS have expressed a serious interest in this project, all of the actors are willing to sign on AND there seems to be no end of fan support. What needs to happen now, and this is what we are working on, is a cost analysis and presentation to both that this could be done on a "shoestring" budget. Obviously ships are easy in CGI, I do every render on a Macbook Pro sitting at my kitchen counter. Interiors could be greenscreened, and minimal sets would have to be manufactured. Robert Bolivar is writing up the proposal as I type this, and I am not sure when it's being presented to both parties, however, I will caution, things like this, are a HUGE undertaking and do not happen overnight, we may have to revise and revise and revise until we get something they like. Writing to CBS and Netflix, will certainly help and links were provided to both a while back, I'll ask Robert to put those back up again, and a letter writing campaign may be the next step."
