Yes, quite the departure from what most consider ‘Star Trek’ — yet, it added to the amazing tapestry that is that 300-year saga and lifted fans further toward the 4th season where we got those episodes that are ‘favorites’ of us all. There were a LOT of great stories in Season Three, and the follow-up to the cliff-hanger where we found out what that alien Nazi was, was also quite a dramatic turn for ‘Trek.

All in all, another VERY DIFFICULT season of television VERY WELL DONE by Paramount and those who worked on the series, cast and crew alike. And Capt. Archer’s own ‘arc’ was just as riviting as the Xindi story-arc: he came full circle in many ways, as did many others in the [cast].

Bravo, Star Trek: Enterprise — now if we could only get a ST:ENT Season Five to round off everything and still have Trip Tucker (his death ep. evidently wasn’t until several years AFTER the Terra Prime story, in the timeline), that would be even more amazing.

That was…the worst trailer I’ve seen in a while…

3. DP McGuire - September 28, 2013

Great Trailer now I want to buy it in Blue Ray.

4. Mr.Regular - September 28, 2013

It’s unfortunate that the plug was pulled on Enterprise after the end of the 4th Season. The show was finally finding its way and could have shown us the Romulan war, start of the Federation, etc. The fans deserve a fifth season or at least a mini-series to wrap up the story lines that were so terribly handled in the conclusion to the series. Riker as a chef? Say what???

5. Mike C. - September 28, 2013

Wrong season art, thought. Can’t wait to watch this season again in heavy doses of episodes.

6. Chancellor Gowron - September 28, 2013

This is one of my favorite seasons of Star Trek. It is very reminiscent of the later Dominion War episodes of DS9.

7. Exverlobter - September 28, 2013

Although i think the Xindi-arc was an improvement i would have prefered the Romulan war instead.
They could have made almost the same episodes just with Romulans instead of Xindis.

8. Matt - September 28, 2013

I always loved this season. this and season four will my favorite seasons of Enterprise.

9. Cygnus-X1 - September 28, 2013

Watching that trailer makes me want to re-watch Seasons 3 and 4.

Season 3 is where the series really started coming into its own. Unfortunately, too many viewers had tuned out by that point (myself included) and the great work of Manny Coto and others went largely under-appreciated.

The production values of ST: Enterprise were top-notch.
I liked that they had 5 species of Xindi; and the addition of veteran Trek actor Randy Ogelsby, as Xindi leader “Degra,” to the cast that season really raised the performance bar for everyone. The actor who played that reptilian Xindi leader was great, too. Extremely effective.

I wouldn’t want them to revive this series unless they were to give it a major overhaul in terms of cast. Bringing back 40-something year-old actors to play ensigns isn’t a good idea. They did it with the TOS movies, but there’s no need to do it here. Bring back Archer, Flox and maybe T’Pol, and have the rest be new characters. I liked Tripp as much as anyone, but they killed him off. No need to resurrect him now and ruin the emotion surrounding his death at the end of Season 4. All good things…

10. Dswynne - September 28, 2013

@8: Time skip. Remember, the Earth-Romulan War took place years after Season 4. Plus, there is movie magic that can help. Look at Orlando Bloom, and how he was able to reprise his role as Legolas in the new Hobbit trilogy…

11. BatlethInTheGroin - September 28, 2013

Um… why is season one artwork on the box cover?

12. miketen - September 28, 2013

@ 8. Cygnus-X1, I think everyone would agree that the last episode of Enterprise should be written off as maybe inaccurate history records and have Trip survive. It was a holodeck story after all.

I would pay to see a Direct to DVD or Netflix season 5 maybe set several years into the future at the time of the Romulan War. Then you wouldn’t even have to worry about Trip since he would still be alive.

13. Harry Ballz - September 28, 2013

Um, I dunno, the whole thing……looked kinda cheap, like it was put together on a shoestring budget.

14. TUP - September 28, 2013

The xindi arc was awful. It showed that berman had no clue.

DS9 did war. Enterprise war was terrible.

15. CmdrR - September 28, 2013

It felt, to me anyway, that the Xindi arc dragged on many more eps than needed and missed opportunities. I would love to have seen the Klingon who hated Archer so much that he followed him into the Expanse survive and pop up inside Xindi space. Twilight is the best of Season 3, to me, not least of all because it was a complete story, whereas many of the eps felt like they only were part of the arc and not a thing unto themselves.

As for Season 4… it had great eps, and it also had crap. Space Nazis vs. The Sopranos? Sorry. That sucked. As did Daedalus. If there’s a duller actor than Bill Cobbs, I only hope to avoid his work. And of course, the less said about “These are the Voyages” the better.

Still, even at about 40% good eps, Ent was worth keeping around. It should get a movie… but, I’m not holding my breath.

16. Sebastian - September 28, 2013

Sadly, S3 was my least favorite of the show; I never quite bought the season-long justification for the invasion of Iraq. It was not only too on-the-nose, it was somewhat irresponsible. There were a couple of good episodes, but nothing worth owning.

S4 got the show back on track; that one I’d like to have on blu-ray someday…

18. Sid - September 28, 2013

That was a goofy trailer.

I really thought the worst of Season 3 when I started watching it — “oh boy another Dominion War but this time with heavy-handed 9/11 and Iraq messages”

I was very pleasantly surprised.

19. Cygnus-X1 - September 28, 2013

—@ 8. Cygnus-X1, I think everyone would agree that the last episode of Enterprise should be written off as maybe inaccurate history records and have Trip survive. It was a holodeck story after all.—

Good point. I forgot about that.

OK, so they can bring back Trip, then!

Maybe have arcs where Archer goes from Captain to Admiral, and Trip from 1st Officer to Captain. An Enterprise movie would be great! Lots of fertile ground for story there.

20. Weerd1 - September 28, 2013

I could have done without the trailer voice over, but regardless I have come to really appreciate the third season of Enterprise. I think the only place it really fails for me is I overestimated where they were taking the story, and I was really hoping it would end with the Xindi superweapon launching, but without functioning navigation. Also, it would look like an evil cornucopia. Surely I’m not the only one who thought they were leading to the Doomsday Machine?

21. Star Trek Family - September 28, 2013

I think seasons 3 & 4 were closer to real Star Trek than any of the other shows. Still TOS will always be my favorite.

22. Dave in RI - September 28, 2013

Was the identity of Future Guy ever revealed?

I forget

23. Exverlobter - September 29, 2013

@22
No.
But they planned it to be a Romulan.
Perhaps it was Nero’s brother.

24. Jack - September 29, 2013

Note that the idea of making a valentine to fans led to the Enterprise finale — and the death scene in Into Darkness. Moral: fans don’t like valentines, they like decent writing.

25. Platitude - September 29, 2013

Enterprise season 3 is excellent television, but man that box art is AWFUL. Why are they using promo images from season one for season three? The characters, especially T’pol and Archer have a pretty different look in season three. I hope they change this.

26. t'cal - September 29, 2013

When T’Pol left the VHC, why didn’t she done a uniform like the rest of the crew? She was always way too sarcastic and condescending for me. Never liked how she was written. Archer had promise but never lived up to his potential, although Bakula did his best with what he was given. Trip, Malcolm, and Phlox were done well, though. Hoshi and Travis were all but ignored.

27. Russell Meyers - September 29, 2013

24 – Exactly

28. Keachick - September 29, 2013

#26 T’Pol was Vulcan – part of the Vulcan nature. So could/can Spock be as well and he is only half-Vulcan. It is that high intellect trying to operate without fully appreciating and integrating the emotional side – hence we get insufferable twats like T’Pol and the two Spocks.

Patience is a virtue and boy do you need to be patient around Vulcans, not that they would ever consider that such a virtue might need to be developed and practised by humans in order for human beings to relate to Vulcans without wanting to “rip their bangs off”.

In Kirk’s case, re that comment, he was feeling unusual impatience and a general unwellness because of what had happened…

29. Basement Blogger - September 29, 2013

Bravo Enterprise. I’m not a fan of serial storytelling. But the Xindi arc was clearly a metaphor for the war on terror. This was done way before the Supreme Court said Nero’s incursion into the Prime universe was their 9/11.

Captain Archer steps over ethical boundaries. He becomes a pirate. He tortures a prisoner. I am not sure I can blame him. But I felt uncomfortable about it. That’s the beauty of Star Trek. Kudos to Rick Berman for letting the writers go this direction.

Boy, I miss Star Trek on television.

30. Sid - September 29, 2013

@29

I wish the War On Terror had gone the way it did in Enterprise, rather than what we got in real life.

31. Marja - September 29, 2013

Keachick – September 29, 2013

” @#26 T’Pol was Vulcan – part of the Vulcan nature. So could/can Spock be as well and he is only half-Vulcan. It is that high intellect trying to operate without fully appreciating and integrating the emotional side – hence we get insufferable twats like T’Pol and the two Spocks.”

Hey, hey, Keachick, you may have had a terrible day – it’s not like you to be so mean. Especially with that word, nearly on the level with the “C” word. You maybe could’ve stopped with “insufferable”.

I think jolene Blalock, as T’Pol, came across as a “cold b*tch” because most audiences like women to be warm and relatable – which, in her portrayal, T’Pol is not. The affectless voice, which both Blalock and Tim Russ use in their characterizations, leave me, you should excuse the expression, rather cold ; ) … as I recall, over time, Blalock began to bring in a bit of the humor and the “humans – I don’t get them” looks, but in the first two seasons, she seemed as if she pretty much despised them. Perhaps they felt the affectless voice was necessary b/c they were playing full Vulcans? I don’t know. I just remember Celia Lovsky as T’Pau in TOS. She had some feeling in her voice. And imperiousness.

I’ve always thought it odd that for a race which supposedly believes in the concept of IDIC, that Vulcans seem so prejudiced : (

I think both Spocks, Nimoy and Quinto, each get an occasional glint of humor in their eyes and expression, and both definitely show feelings of sadness when warranted. They are half-human, after all.

32. Marja - September 29, 2013

26, Meriwether and Sato definitely did not get much attention. And while Travis at least got to be damn good at his job, it seemed Hoshi got a raw deal in most of the stories, appearing sort of ineffectual.

33. Marja - September 29, 2013

Keachick, though this is a very good insight “It is that high intellect trying to operate without fully appreciating and integrating the emotional side” And supposedly Spock was always trying to be “extra-” Vulcan … but his human side evinces itself. I still think a lot of the remarks Spock makes in non-emergency moments are to twit McCoy or Kirk. A sense of humor, definitely, and Kirk in TOS catches onto it pretty quickly ; )

It may be that T’Pol and Tuvok are working really hard to subdue their own Vulcan emotions, so come across in such a cold way? And that Spock is doing that too?

34. t'cal - September 30, 2013

When T’Pol left the VHC, why didn’t she don a uniform like the rest of the crew? She was always way too sarcastic and condescending for me. Never liked how she was written.

35. Al - September 30, 2013

Is this the one with the Nazis

36. TUP - September 30, 2013

I think the Nazi’s were the first two episodes of season 4.

Lazy writing again ruined a wonderful concept.

They should never have launched the ship until the end of the first season. It should have been Earth Based, showing the political intrigue of the project while the ship was under construction.

They created the character of Hoshi to show the importance of needing a communication expert and never really paid that off. But more interestingly, she hated space travel. She should have been the conduit for the viewer to experience all the fright of space travel and they didnt pay that off either.

Maywether was the inexperienced officer but veteran deep space’er. And they never did anything with that.

Trip was the best character on the show by far.

37. StevenPDX - September 30, 2013

I was looking SOOO forward to TOS backstories when Enterprise was announced. When the Xindi arc was introduced, I remember a bunch of us asking, “What the heck is this?” And while the story was interesting, it was so far away from the rich canon that had been built through TOS, TNG, DS9, and Voyager.

When the Season 4 backstories began, it was clear how talented the cast, crew, and writers were–but it was too little too late. Two seasons had been used up on the Xindi sidetrip and the show had lost its audience. That bummed me out so much because it felt as if the crew and their interpersonal relationships were really developing.

To this day, I still feel that the whole “Xindi thing” was a mistake. It was a divergence from what I believe the fan base wanted and it wasn’t a compelling enough story to keep the viewing audience in place. As a result, a great TV series was cut short and taken off the air before its time. I really wish we could get another season or two of backstory-type episodes like Season 4. That would have been a blast to watch…

38. TUP - September 30, 2013

Yup. The fans wanted a true prequel. I dont even think they wanted a “show that stands on its own” so to speak. They wanted a TOS-canon heavy prequel that explored more of the universe we all loved.

They got some things right. The uniforms were awesome. I even got over the superiority of the tech (even though the Enterprise looked far advanced over the TOS ships I thought it was hilarious when, in Season 4 they came across the Defiance and everyone looked around and marvelled at the advance technology).

39. rouge_alice - September 30, 2013

In what episode did the NX01 take those massive blows and the Bridge was blown off?????

40. Marja - September 30, 2013

36 TUP, “They created the character of Hoshi to show the importance of needing a communication expert and never really paid that off. But more interestingly, she hated space travel. She should have been the conduit for the viewer to experience all the fright of space travel and they didnt pay that off either.”

There were a few episodes reflecting her fears of being in space, toward the beginning of the series; I particularly remember one when she and another officer beamed over to a ship which turned out to be full of dead bodies – her terror came across pretty well.

I think in several of the series the writers, after awhile, became a bit more concerned with plots than with developing characters. Hoshi and Mayweather were two characters ill-served by the “plot-ty” nature of many of the shows. I think Mayweather got, like, one episode to show his stuff?

Watching several eps at the end of Season Two recently, I loved a scene between Trip and Archer in which Archer reads Trip the riot act for interfering with the social norms in a race they’ve just met. The episode raised many interesting questions, but the actors during this particular scene – WOW.

41. Marja - September 30, 2013

37 and 38, Steven and TUP, but wouldn’t the fans have bitched about the writers stealing elements from later plots?

Seems the writers can’t win …

42. Marja - September 30, 2013

And just for the record, I hate the uniforms on “Enterprise” – a bit too late 20th-century for my taste. I think fashion [and even uniforms, which are notoriously “behind the times”] will have advanced a bit more than that. The admiral’s is particularly bad.

That said, the costuming of the Vulcans working “with” early Starfleet was lovely, though based on earlier models from STIII and after.

43. Sean4000 - September 30, 2013

38, the episode was called “azati prime”

If this was true 1080p hd I’d buy but it looks like garbage up converted.

I feel like I have egg on my face after all the bragging I did for Eden fx.

45. Daoud - September 30, 2013

The only problem I really had with the Xindi is that since the Stevenses and Coto weren’t on board fully yet, they weren’t tied in better….

The Xindi-Reptilians should have been called “Saurians” to tie them in with TOS’ mentioning but never showing Saurians. I’d have made the TAS “Aquans” there instead of the Xindi-Aquatics. Xindi-Avians? TAS Aleek-Om’s people, the “Aurelians”. Ah, such missed opportunities.

And Future Guy…. should have turned out to have been VOY’s Braxton.

46. StevenPDX - September 30, 2013

41 Marja: Great point. No doubt some would have cried, “No original ideas!” However, I can only speak for myself here. The flat Klingon foreheads arc? Awesome job! The Augments as a precursor to Khan and Dr. Soong? Fabulous!

In these episodes, I thought the writers did a great job taking concepts that we all love so much and providing plausible, engaging, and really creative backstories for them. That’s what makes Star Trek so awesome. Starting with TNG, we had arcs and episodes and dialog that broke the mold of “we’ll never acknowledge what happened last week.” Enterprise had so much promise to create season after season of foundation that would have tied together so many cool stories from the forty years of Trek that we’ve all seen. As a writer and a huge fan of this franchise, I would have given ANYTHING for a chance to participate in a project like that. Instead, we got the Xindi.

I just see it as a huge opportunity that was missed and that might very well have kept Star Trek on television even to this day. And when we did get backstory episodes that were so dang good, it just makes it that much more depressing that they were buried by the whole Xindi thing.

Thanks for your comment and for making a good point.

The episode that the bridge gets blown off in was “Twilight”

The ship does get really beat up in “Azati Prime”, but not THAT beat up

48. Michael - October 2, 2013

I sat down to watch season 2 ep. 1, cliffhanger from season 1 on blu ray. It froze up 5:50 into playback. :( Why since the inception of BD do I keep getting poorly manufactured discs FAR exceeding what I ever had on vhs or dvd having bought hundreds of titles? Aren’t these supposed to be superior and layer and protective coated? arrrrg! Now I contacted seller on ebay for refund or replacement.

49. Cygnus-X1 - October 2, 2013

31. Marja – September 29, 2013

Jolene Blalock grew into the T’Pol character and, by Season 4, was adding a compelling emotional element to the series. But, I think in our hearts of hearts, we all know why she was cast in that role to begin with.

Tim Russ was a great Vulcan. I’ve heard people say that they found him the most convincing Vulcan (after Nimoy) in all of Trekdom, and I can’t disagree with that assessment. In the Voyager episode where Tuvok’s brain gets fried and he reverts back to having the mind of a child, we finally get to see just how good of a Vulcan Tim Russ had been portraying. It was easy to take him for granted after 5 Seasons of playing a very limited character, but as soon as they gave him a chance to break out of that character for a bit, we got to see the job he’d been doing all along.

—26, Meriwether and Sato definitely did not get much attention. And while Travis at least got to be damn good at his job, it seemed Hoshi got a raw deal in most of the stories, appearing sort of ineffectual.—

It sounds harsh to say, but those two characters could have been eliminated with no downside to the series.

51. Cygnus-X1 - October 2, 2013

46. StevenPDX – September 30, 2013

I can understand how some fans thought the whole Xindi arc was a bit much, though I think it hold up well when I watch it now.

The Soong/Augments mini-series was great. Brent Spiner, the premise, the stories…all of it.

52. Marja - October 3, 2013

Cygnus, I’ve been “binge-watching” Season 3 and am very impressed. The Xindi don’t hog the entire season, in a few episodes they are only mentioned as motivation for getting through the Expanse and the reason for their mission.

I’ve even noticed the great job Blalock is doing by Season 3, her eyes are communicating lots of emotion, or thinking about emotions, and there is much more sensitivity.

As you pointed out, there is definitely a reason she was cast – she really does have a great body, but several of the costumes designed for her cling to EVERY INCH of her torso and backside, and I cannot help but ponder the illogic of her nighttime attire. Ah, well, they had to appeal to the fanboys.

I really enjoy Billingsley’s characterization of the cool, yet at times impish, Dr Phlox, Trineer as Trip is phenomenal, Bakula is really great, handling Archer’s authority and action! in good balance, the portrayal of his inner conflict and outer actions in “Similitude” was fabulous; and Keating as Malcom Reed is very good also, especially in his bits with Trip, a great portrayal of male friendship.

Last night I watched “Similitude” [coma Trip and clone Trip] and was brought to tears. It was a very good and well-acted story. Holy moley.

The design of the ship and some of the costumes, though, I’m not so crazy about … but I love Phlox’s tunics and the Vulcan robes : )

So – though I never saw it in its first run b/c I don’t have a TV [cable costs too damn much and I can’t catch a signal without it] – I’m ranking Enterprise pretty damn high as a Trek series. It’s a shame they couldn’t run 5 years, but 4 years is a good run.

53. shadow - October 4, 2013

I thought the Xindi arc was good, that was the first full season of Enterprise I watched. It was exciting and the crew started to meld well with each other towards the end of the second season. The problem is, rewatching this on Netflix, I’ve found that this season takes too long to get into the plot. We’re waiting for the Xindi to appear and I lost interest (during my rewatch) around the third episode. TNG already did it! (similar to South Park complaining the Simpsons have already done every plot imaginable)

54. Marja - October 4, 2013

Aw, shadow, Give it a chance. You have to admit that every story on Enterprise beats the crap outta Voyager ; )

55. Christopher Roberts - October 5, 2013

Great season. Terrible cover. Must be better images from this year.
