    I don't think CBS and Paramount is interest in bringing back Star Trek Enterprise. We been petitioning since 2004 UPN, CBS, SyFy, Netflix and The CW. Both SyFy and The CW had interest, in the end, it was turn down by them.
    There is a rumor news that they might bring back Captain Archer. But I don't know if it just rumor or it going to happen.

    As laudable as the attempt is, I don't think a thousand signatures on a petition is going to make it happen. I'd love it if the rumours about Archer are true and I think Discovery and then Lower Decks have both made nods towards Enterprise, but the horse has long since bolted in actually getting Enterprise Season 5. Even if it did happen, it would be in such a form as to be unrecognisable from where we were in Season 4 of Enterprise, so those calling for its return would inevitably be disappointed.

    I've been thinking about this and I wouldn't bet against Captain Archer returning in one of the new shows, some sort of time-twisting plot shenanigans, I can see it now. It would be a nice nod to Trek history and bound to create a but of a buzz. Scott Bakula hasn't aged that much and if he's not interested get that guy out of Quantum Leap.

    Simple: just open SNW with the christening ceremony of the Enterprise in 2245, which Archer is supposed to have attended. In a twist on expectations, SNW proceeds to throw in more than a few episodes with April’s crew as well.

    Everyone who did the show is 16y older. And the sets were probably scrap metal long ago, the costumes auctioned off, etc.

    Maybe if they did an animated version...

    No, I mean why not have Archer appear on SNW?

    And a McCoy treatment for Scott Bakula? That would be cool in its own way.

    The Steve Rogers treatment, but yes. The first episode would be all about Archer, and then he dies the next day (as established in that same personnel file which had him live to see the christening).

    (The problem is that SNW comes with so many well-publicized expectations that it absolutely needs to yank the rug from under the viewer, make them feel uncomfortable if all they came to see was “a return to episodic storytelling”, as if it’s all about the format and not quality. So yes, let’s bring in Archer for just the first episode. Let’s even imply that SNW and his stint on DSC are actually Pike’s fantasies upon his return to Talos IV. Did some of that happen, and if so, to what extent?)

    T’Pol, of course, could be featured in the same way, but as a character integral to SNW, totally independent of her role on ENT unless that comes up in a given situation. There are ways to include ENT as long as we focus on the here and now.

    The producers of SNW aren’t going to give a crap about Archer. They’re going to want to tell their own new stories.

    Possibly, but I’m trying to imagine the show as something less predictable than the publicity so far has made it out to be.

    It’s being advertised as episodic. So there will be ten to thirteen episodes that have nothing to do with each other. So that would mean that at the most, anything having to do with Archer would be one episode long. That might be enough, but I’m thinking that the producers and writers will be trying to make more original standalone episodes without needing a callback to a show that hardly anyone watched, relatively speaking.

    I think it will depend on if they get a good script.

    If canon is to be followed Archer would have to die the next day after visiting the 1701, as per Archers biography on the Defiant.

    I don't think that second page of the U.S.S. Defiant computer screen read-out was visible onscreen.

    I love the poetry of Archer having hung onto life, long enough to see a successor Enterprise starship launch and then promptly expiring. But wasn't that the graphic dept simply giving Hoshi a feed line, so she can taunt Archer with her knowing the date of his death. Siilik liked doing that in the first story, before noting "I suppose that's about to change."

    Besides "Relics" had Scotty thinking Kirk was alive and well enough to pull the Enterprise-A out of mothballs to come looking for him. Two years later it was like that line never happened.

    Correct. Little minuscule details are canon until they get contradicted by someone who wasn't aware of those minuscule details, or wouldn't have cared about them had he/she known.

    I would point out if this even matters but on this forum when that episode was new and Mike Susmann posted on here is that he wrote that biography, not clear on the TVs at the time but better resolution would have revealed so.

    Just saying

    Mike also said he never intended those biography screens to be seen up-close. Are they to be considered any more canon than other background graphics, which are usually full of in-jokes and anime references?

    I really would like to see Archer and Crew again, especially if we could see the refit of Enterprise. But I doubt it will come to this. I do not except to see anymore of this show.
