I just finished watching Enterprise on dvd. Now I came in on the TNG series. Watch TOS when I can. Enjoyed Voyager.
I tried to watch Enterprise, but couldn't get past the awful "rock ballad" as another ATSer put it. And I thought that Scott Bakula wasn't a good
I heard later that the later seasons were good.
Since it has been several years since I have had my ST fill. I started watching it as a stop gap. And I am regretting not supporting the show when it
was on, and watching more of it. And bakula was an awesome captain.
It has its downfalls, don't get me wrong. But I thought it was very good.
So why didn't it do so well, besides the aforementioned?
I have read threads where people think the first problem was that it was aired on UPN, and they didn't give it the chance or attention it needed.
I think some of the cons is that it was too much TNG. And they really need to stop with the time stuff. Time stuff has been way overdone, and they
went overboard on top of that. the Xindi stuff was really cool, but should of been a future series> not Enterprise.
That should of been voyager or later.
They should of never touched Borg.
The series was supposed to be on the ship itself and humans starting out. The ship worked perfectly, better then Voyager. They met all these new
I think if they focused more on: meeting the vulcans, andorians, and klingons.
They focuses a lot on Vulcans. And it was nice to get to see them more in depth. Instead of the same ol meeting new species formula, we could of
gotten more indepth with the others.
I love Shran. Wish we had more of him.
They could of focused more on the starting of starfleet, and the problems thereof. They seemed to establish this friendly, stoic pecking order of TNG.
Since it was all brand new, they could of certainly focused on more issues with that.
And with getting the ship to work correctly. The ship got too advanced to fast. It was like they couldn't write the show without doing it.
And they should of developed the relationship with t'pol and tucker. You were teased the whole series. And it didn't go either way. That
relationship would of been more of Roddenberry's style. Since it was taboo. They could of really played that up. And that would of appealed to the
I thought Hoshi's character was weak.
Other then Hoshi, the cast was awesome. You adored Tucker, admired Archer, and wanted to know t'pol more. The doctors on any of the series never let
Even though there were too many new aliens, they were cool. And you got to see more of the Orions and andorians. I would of loved to have seen
While too much, the Xindi concept was neat.
The ship was cool. Instead of everything being automated. It had monitors and buttons and didn't involve the computer too much.
I would love to hear your input. Was Enterprise not given enough time and credit?
