    Nice Try! :rommie:

    I'm surprised you didn't choose "A Night in Sickbay"!

    Those too episodes seem a little obscure for a April Fools joke. I couldn't even remember what Terra Nova was about.

    I love Terra Nova. I never get the dislike of it.

    I thought Terra Nova had buckets of charm. Well. A bucket.

    Bound, on the other hand, is going to burn in the Special Hell.

    What is wrong with Terra Nova? It was classic Trek themes. It would have been a huge winner as a TOS ep.

    It has Dominic Keating with a dirty face. There is just nothing at all that could possibly be wrong with that.

    They're annoying beyond words. :shifty:

    Up the long ladder, but with fucktards! :scream:

    Also, it was ENT's first season, goddammit! A little TOO EARLY for a friggin' REHASH!

    TNG did a rehash on its second episode.

    Yeah, TNG was only the first TOS spinoff, and a first Trek TV series in nearly two decades.

    TV audiences were already greatly suffering from Trek fatigue when ENT came along, and the last thing they needed was more of the same, IMO.

    I can't shake the feeling that ENT would have gotten its seven years if only CBS had let Braga and Berman go with their original idea (Season 1 entirely on Earth, Archer assembling the crew while the ship is being finished etc).

    Yes, it's only an April Fools that smells as bad as a corpse that lain undisturbed for 2 weeks now...

    But if Bob Orci really wanted to go down in Star Trek history as a hero (on top of that little matter of breathing new life into TOS characters), he could do it quite simply.

    Just decanonise "These are the Voyages..."

    Properly and onscreen, by out right contradicting what went down in that 24th Century holodeck.

    If there's such a moment in the next film, I'll bring the champagne. You folks can supply the glasses.

    And it only takes ONE SIMPLE LINE: "...but the NX-01 was destroyed in 2157!" :alienblush:

    Maybe there is a fate worse than death, and they made us all sit through it until the bitter end... just to see that damn starship montage! :lol:

    Can't really decanonize it, but it's really easy to reduce the significance to near zero.

    After all, the entire thing took place on the holodeck, two centuries after the events supposedly depicted took place. Who's to say the programmer got all that much right? ;)
