And I don't like to draw comparisons, but, sometimes I have to with the naysayers online who like to bash the Kurtzman team. I dug up a few old threads from here dated April, 2002 and specifically looked at the Enterprise forum. One particular hate thread jumped out at me from someone who was bashing Berman and Braga and accused them of not liking Star Trek. You literally could just replace their names with Kurtzman and Enterprise with Discovery and it would be the exact same complaint. And Coto essentially just found a better method to utilize the show's slashed budget by telling two and three part stories. So while I've seen some throughout the years refer to season four of Enterprise as 'groundbreaking', what we saw was just the result of balancing a budget. I will say it was a stronger season simply because they were telling stories that made the series feel like a prequel. As much as people may love the Xindi story (I am not one of them), Enterprise no longer felt like a prequel at that point. I'd critique Berman and Braga for that storyline simply because we knew the outcome before the season even began. While Enterprise ceased to feel like a prequel at that point to me, the show still was a prequel, and didn't believe for one second that Earth was in any peril considering we clearly see it in all the other series set afterward.
