There were only two reasons to watch Enterprise, and they're both ably demonstrated in this link - http://www.thepensivecitadel.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/broken_decon3.jpg

Yep them...although I don't really find pointy-eared bastards particularly attractive. The T'pol character is quite interesting though What's with the sexing up in Enterprise, by the way?

Some horribly mis-casts in it too, Bakula being the obvious one. So many annoyinng characters...why the hell am I watching it?

I don't think I made it past the end of season one. A friend showed me the bit in an episode where they revisit the events of First Contact, and that looked genuinely interesting.

But the whole thing fell down because it all looked too much like the newer Treks, despite being set way before TOS.

Does anyone think there's another Trek series out there? Epic theme has been done with BSG, and small rebel crew has been done with Firefly. Where else could Trek go?

Personally, I'd love to see the birth of the Federation as a series. Take the events of First Contact as a starting point: the first use of the warp drive, the visit by the Vulcans, and then, rather than following the crew of the Enterprise E back to the future, we stay on Earth. A broken, holocaust Earth that is in dire need of repair. How do we get from there - the criminal, dirty world, to the clean, utopia as the Federation is presented? That journey could be fascinating.

But it's called Star Trek.

Lets embrace the 60s adventure feel - silly stories, groovy spaceship. Light and fun.

Enterprise also falls down, for me, where everyone they meet pretty much turns out to be bad. You think they're good, there's a few sinister looks between them, and they try to screw Enterprise over...every time. Or on the very rare occasion it's the other way around.

I like the sound of that premise but it might have to be called Earth Trek!

True, but it would be the first trek to the stars, it would be within the ethos still.

I take your point re light and fun, tho.

We have a young lad in the office, he's 17 and he'd never heard of Star Trek.

He was vaguely aware of the movie a few years back but he don't do scifi it's not gangsta innit an ting.

Little twat, we sent him for the long stand.

It was sexed up to mirror the attitudes towards Women in the 60s series and give it that kind of vibe.

9/28/87.

what could have been a naked attempt to cash in on the success of the trek movies in '87 spawned a game changer which re established trek back on tv and led to a golden age of US genre tv that is still producing quality shows to this day.


who are we to argue with the captain of the enterprise?-

for paramount it might be a question of when not if.
but should trek really return to tv?-

http://trekmovie.com/2012/10/02/should-star-trek-come-back-to-tv-an-objective-evaluation/

maybe they should leave it to the movie series to thrive for now.

I've been watching Star Trek TNG a lot lately, and something's occurred to me that I was wondering if you guys might clear up for me:

When Dr Crusher says into her communicator "Two to beam directly to sick bay," how does the transporter engineer know which two she means? Obviously one of them is her, but is the other just the one in her immediate vicinity?

I'm assuming it's just that it sounds better in terms of dialogue, but I was wondering if there was a technical explanation as well

Also if someone is about to beam up, but someone taps them on the shoulder, will the tapper's hand be beamed up as well or is the beam specific enough to take just the one person?
