    :( So now its cancelled, forever :( I would just like to say this. While I was not altogether happy with some things about Enterprise, in fact I thought some episodes were even "shitty", I still feel it is one of the best shows on TV. I am a Trek fan from way back. I hate to see no more trek on TV, It is indeed a sad day. :( I'm glad for the new BSG as I think it is the best show on TV and might help fill the void for some of us, but let it be our new hobby to make sure that when the world sees the initials UPN, the first thing that pops into their heads is "thats the network that killed Star Trek". Maybe I will actually read some of the ST books now. I have only ever read one. Its too early to start drinking, but I feel as though I need one. Reading this news is not that great to read first thing in the morning. :( * deep breath everyone, in with the butterflies, out with the bees * :o

    I'd just like to express my sadness at hearing the news that 'Enterprise' has been cancelled.

    I'm not presuming to lay blame for the cancellation, as I'm sure that everyone has an opinion on that one. I'm just sad that the show was cancelled.

    I personally enjoyed Enterprise. Right from the outset, I found the stories entertaining, and the characters interesting. Sure, the show had it's problems, but the fundamental difference between 'Enterprise' and other series is that 'Enterprise' got off to a strong start (Seasons 1 and 2) whereas the other series did not. TNG and DS9 are examples of this.

    I believe that we will soon be entering another period similar to the 1980s where there was precious little Trek on TV. The demise of the TV series will probably flow onto the books and other merchandising as well.

    I know that the fans are organising things to save Enterprise, and while I wish them success, I don't expect to see it. I imagine that the studio, remembering the TOS outcry, will have anticipated such action and are prepared to see their decision through.

    Ultimately, I see the collapse of UPN coming from this. From what I have heard, the network has very few decent programs.

    Again, I'd like to say how sorry I am to see 'Enterprise' cancelled. My sympathies to the cast and crew.

    Simply because I give my Honest Opinion and it just happens to GO AGAINST THAT OF THE MAJORITY HERE, you're giving me a "trolling" warning?!!

    What kind of "moderator" are you? One that MUST see ALL views flowing in the same direction? Do you Know what "trolling" is? Well, it's about posting crap which has no bearing on the formum's subject matter... Something I've NEVER violated...

    If we all weren't afraid to say how we truly feel, this country might not be in so much debt today--and tens of thousands of People would still be alive!

    Well, Mr. Mod, I want an Apology...

    ^Yeah, it does seem a little harsh.

    Anyway, although I didn't really watch Enterprise (due in part to Channel 4's crappiness), I'm sorry for the people who enjoyed it that it is gone. But don't dispair too much - buy the TOS and DS9 DVDs, if don't already have them!

    If the words were good enough for Scotty, then I feel they are appropriate here "UP YOUR SHAFT". You are entitled to your opinion but obviously you have no compassion or sense to say what you say here and now. From my point of view I don't understand why the mods allow your kind of behavior to exist at all. Most well moderated forums would not even allow your vile bile to be a general Trek or scifi site maybe, but in an "ENT" forum, very crude and unnecessaary. It is like having your neighbor come into your house and take a crap in the middle of the floor. Very disrespectful.

    Bummer indeed. I was expecting this after theratings for the first three episodes of the season came in. I just thought that they would have waited to see if the ratings went back up. I think that this show's that ENT's quality (or lack thereof) wasn't as big a factor as people thing. By all accounts from critics and fans ENT had reallly improved. Yet ratings still went down. Now either those people were wrong or there's something else going on. Face it...since TNG ended each of the following series saw drop offs in the ratings in similiar percentages. Even the accliamed DS9 lost viewers each season. If it was so good why the drop offs? And it wasn't cause of B&B either....make of that what you will.

    I just want to thank the entire cast and Berman and Braga and all the other writers for a great 4 season run. You guys rock!

    I can't believe UPN have canceled Enterprise. This makes me mad :mad:.
    This is a sad for all Star Trek fans. :(

    I just hope Enterprise will return one of these days.

    My guess is that B&B had a pretty good idea about what was going to happen. I think they gave it to Coto to give him a chance, knowing very well the chances were slim considering the new day of airing and the controverse among Trekkers. I wouldn't be suprised at all if they have been planning a future show for the last year. And I wouldn't be surprised if the movie Berman talked about a few weeks ago - with an all new cast - is actually an idea for a series that may be launched by a (theatrical) movie. Whether it will all happen is another matter entirely.

    The future will tell...

    Will B & B finally be stopped from ever doing anything trek ever again?

    Out there... thataway.
    I was never a regular viewer of Enterprise, but it is sad to see a Trek production canceled due to low ratings. I have no doubt, however, that "the Star Trek shall rise again."

    This is one prediction I made that did not come true.
    I saw it going seven seasons. BUT I also prayed that B and B lose their jobs. I can't have it all. This show did not deserve to survive.

    It may have been your first line. I dont think prayers are an opinion. That first line could be taken as a taunt. Someone correct me if im wrong.

    Well, I'm one of the viewers who gave ENT a chance after passing completely on the very slip-shod VOY, but left before season one was up. The show was putting me to sleep, with "Rogue Planet" being the last straw.

    PhantomoftheNet's post thus sums it up perfectly -- B&B were phoning it in that first season (and beyond, I guess; I never went back), and it showed. The cancellation is squarely on their incompetence; they dug the show a hole it couldn't get out of.

    Can't say I'm sorry that ENT's gone, but I'm sorry for those of you who are.

    What I find extremely ironic is yesterday Bill Hunt on digitalbits posted that Paramount fianlly announced the official cover art and final details of the season 1 dvds.....and a few hours later Paramount announced also that they axed the show. Brilliant marketing strategy if you ask me.

    You know, does UPN think they're too good to carry a Star Trek show now? Who the hell are they?

    Man, I can't believe that they actually did it, though. I know cancellation had always been lingering for the show since the second season, but I never thought they'd do it.

    And you know what sucks the most? It's the year before Star Trek's fortieth anniversary. I loved Enterprise and thought it was among the best of Star Trek. Berman can't be pleased about this.

    Well, at least we get to see the remainder of the season and they have ample time to have a series finale. It's not as if it's being pulled from the air this week never to be seen again.

    I'll miss you, Enterprise. I'll miss you a lot. Wednesdays and Fridays just won't be the same without you.

    Actually for me, it was deep Space 9 AND Babylon 5...didn't quite get into it during the first season, so occasionally watched 2nd, but then heard soem buzz about it, starting following a continuing storyline, and BOTH got me hooked!

    Also -- with Stargate - SG1 ....#1 it had the problem of syndication, then it took me till about seaosn 2 or 3 before i got into it -- and loved it too!

    So for me, those shows took a while, but they truly grew & developed over time, and had fans who got hooked...

    also, it was clear (especially later on, in their "fun" episodes" as well as interviews & internet communications) that the producers fo the shows appreciated & respected the fans, and shared their thoughts with them.
