The fourth season of Star Trek Enterprise was the season that most Trekkers have been waiting for, with homages to the original series(Mirror Universe,The Eugenics Wars,Orion slave women,T'Pau), as well as rectifying continuety errors(The Vulcans,The Klingon "forehead" issue).Unfortunately,the show was cancelled prematurely as the show was becoming what Trekkers been waiting for since "Broken Bow".

One of the biggest contributing factors for the success of the fourth season was supervising producer Manny Coto,an original series fanatic who brought Enterprise back on the right tracks as far back as season three.Sensing that the show wasn't going to see a fifth season,Executive producer Rick Berman handed the reins to Coto, who set about in correcting the many elements in Trek history that have been disregarded,which drove away even the most dedicated fan.

The season's format was tweaked to make room for multi episode arcs which dealt separately with The Eugenics Wars(The Augment trilogy featuring Brent Spiner as Arik Soong),A Vulcan Civil War(featuring Surak, and T'Pau),A Klingon Virus (resulting in the humanoid Klingon foreheads from the original series), and the mirror universe featuring the USS Defiant from The Tholian Web.

One of the biggest disappointments of the season itself was the final episode "..These Are The Voyages" which takes place on the Enterprise-D, featuring Riker and Troi.Instead of giving the NX-01 crew a dignified send off,they were used supporting characters in a glorified "Next Generation" episode.

The finale (written by Rick Berman and Brannon Braga) was called a "Valentine to the fans".But the real valentine was the entire fourth season which finally gave the fans what they wanted,and the most problematic Star Trek series a dignified ending, dispite it's weak finale.

Following the success of four live-action TV series and ten feature-length films, producers Rick Berman and Brannon Braga attempted to create a fifth live-action "Star Trek" series that would be set approximately 100 years prior to the time of Captain Kirk (during the original "Star Trek" series of 1966-1969), 200 years before the time of Captain Picard (during the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" of 1987-1994) and 100 years after the fictional character Dr. Zefram Cochrane flew the first warp-capable spaceship, as depicted in the 1996 film "Star Trek: First Contact".

The new series, entitled "Enterprise", debuted in the fall of 2001, months after the previous "Star Trek" series, "Voyager", concluded its seven-year run. As the show's title implied, the ship used in the show was named "Enterprise" and had serial number NX-01 with a maximum speed of warp 5. It's crew was comprised of Captain Jonathan Archer (Scott Bakula, formerly the lead actor of the sci-fi TV show "Quantum Leap" of 1989-1993), Vulcan science officer T'Pol (Jolene Blalok), pilot Ensign Travis Mayweather (Anthony Montgomery), ship's communications officer Ensign Hoshi Sato (Linda Park), the Denobulan Dr. Phlox (John Billingsley), weapon's officer Lieutenant Malcolm Reed (Dominic Keating) and ship's engineer Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III (Connor Trinneer).

Over 12,000,000 viewers watched the first season's premiere episode, but subsequent shows had ever-shrinking audiences. The average number of viewers per first-season episode was about 6.7 million; for the second season, this number dropped to 4.4 million and for the third season, the number dropped further to 3.8 million.

This season was the absolute best that Enterprise had to offer! Enterprise finally saw its potential realized under the masterful direction of Manny Coto. The best characteristic of season 4 was that fans finally saw references to the Original Series that we had hoped to see much earlier on in the show. Intriguing stories, action, creativity, and developing the relationships among the crew in a more meaningful way were the traits that made it such a disappointment to have it cancelled after such an amazing season. Under the vehicle of Season 4, one gets to travel to the Mirror Universe with the Enterprise crew, see a Gorn, and see the bridge of the USS Defiant (old school style).

The only drawback to this season is that it contains the final episode by Brannon and Braga titled "These are the Voyages" which is nothing more than a rather stale Star Trek: The Next Generation holodeck episode in which the Enterprise characters are forced into the background while two overaged and overweight TNG characters take center stage and proceed to bastardize the Enterprise we were just getting to know and appreciate after such a wonderful season. My suggestion: Buy the DVD set but don't bother watching the last episode to avoid a huge let-down.

Usually with a TV series, the strategy is to hook the audience early, get enough episodes for syndication, and then worry less about quality, producing episodes that are just good enough to stay on the air and ensure video and DVD sales. "Star Trek: Enterprise" could be a case study in doing the opposite. The uneven, mostly disappointing first three seasons of the show felt like a retread of earlier "Star Treks" and other sci-fi, and there appeared to be an assumption that audiences would simply stick with the show out of Pavlovian habit. Fans will watch anything with "Star Trek" attached to it, right? When ratings plunged and budgets got slashed, the best thing that could happen to "Star Trek: Enterprise" occurred -- producer Manny Coto arrived to salvage things. The fourth season is clearly its best, with the show for the first time beginning to feel like a prequel that didn't rudely skip over the series that started everything. Had this season been the first, "Star Trek: Enterprise" might still be on the air; as things stand, "Star Trek: Enterprise" was cancelled just as it finally showed potential, the accumulated damage to its reputation from previous seasons too much to draw audiences back. Scott Bakula, visibly older and looking at times not unlike Joe Camel, nonetheless finally musters some of the appeal he had on "Quantum Leap" in episodes that give him more to do than get beaten or bark at people for no reason. Even the often appealing but ultimately go-nowhere romance between T'Pol and Tucker found its way into an excellent story with the series' penultimate episode. Unfortunately, even eye-catching apples can have worms, and two episodes stand out as inexcusably awful: "Daedulus" and "These are the Voyages.Read more ›
