Yeah, as much as I liked ENT, the first two seasons felt too clunky and suffered from a lack of real felt like "what would TOS be like if it were written like TNG?"

I think the Xindi season and Coto's brilliant 4th season put the series back on the right track, but too many people had given up on it and the fact it was on the Paramount Network prevented a lot of fans who did want to watch the show from keeping ratings up.

If Enterprise were on CBS (or syndication), it may have been a different story. (But, then, sci-fi shows weren't doing well in the early part of this decade...reality shows had taken over everything).

I think JJA has, from what little I've seen/read, done an admirable job of reviving the franchise. (There, I was on topic for at least one sentence. )

Actually I as (apparently a canonite) couldn't care less about any of those things...Apearences are not important to me, i'm not balking about the redesign of the enterprise for example. I just think that continuity should be respected as much as it can possibly be because that above all other things preserves the percived realism and consistency of the universe.

I guess i'm a continuityite...

who cares if the lights on the enterprise aren't in the same place, that's not important, but showing me that something is true within the context of a given universe, The romulans being relatively unknown before Balance Of Terror for example, and then telling me that in fact all this time, what I had been believing to be true is not, without any sort of explanation as to why it is not, just rifles my feathers. It undermines my perceived understanding of the world and the way in which events in it unfolded.
Mom, how many times do I have to tell you, Track is what athletes run on. Trek is what the Enterprise goes on.

Do the posters of Chris Pine/Kirk remind you of the pictures of Dexter they have like the same lighting kind of looks like Dexter.
