I still maintain that Season 4 showed the potential this show had. So many great backstory arcs. I so wish we had at least one more season…

1. StevenPDX

Your number one and you have set a fine example that I hope others will follow. :)…. I’m going back to my Ironing I just cant get those kinks out.

Its April second where I live you bunch of fools. ;)..

This is old news, trekcore put this info out back in January

Finally something worth talking about on this website.

#1. StevenPDX – April 1, 2014

Definitely showed the potential to be worth a season 5 go. I mean even LOST IN SPACE got a season 4 greenlight (It was Allen, himself, who scuttled it because CBS demanded budget cuts rightly or wrongly surmising that an established series that got new sets in season 3 could squeeze out a 4th without the need of anything new in sets and props. The full Jupiter II wasn’t cheap. And I mean LIS’ 4th could have easily taken place on a Giants’ planet; the first definitely started off in that direction.) There were glimmers prior that I would have joined in a campaign to get a 4th (which interestingly came to pass), but 4 shone bright enough to warrant receiving a renewal nod. Unfortunately, I saw the writing on Moonves’ wall and couldn’t think of anything that he’d respond to. Should have thought of nuts.

@5 TUP — It’s not really new, I think some other sites talked about this a month or two ago, but I’m glad it’s being mentioned. I really like ENT S4 and can’t wait to complete my collection.

Isn’t Manny Coto given credit for getting Enterprise on course in Season Four? So why is his name absent from these extras? Am I missing something?

1. StevenPDX – April 1, 2014 I still maintain that Season 4 showed the potential this show had. So many great backstory arcs. I so wish we had at least one more season… Totally agree. The Aenar…the Andorians…the Vulcans…there was so much more to develop and explore in those cultures, not to mention the mysterious Section 31 (with and without Lt. Reed’s involvement). “The Forge” and “Awakening” two-parter were a clever and very effective use of the premise invented by DC Fontana for TAS ep.2 “Yesteryear” (the only TAS episode that I’d recommend to Trek fans). As for the potential for a Season 5, I think that ship has sailed, at least with the cast of STE. However, I see no reason why the 22nd Century setting of STE couldn’t be rejoined…say, by the sister ship of the Enterprise…I think it was the USS Columbia (?) or some other contemporaneous (or slightly in the future) ship. The next Trek TV series—and hopefully there will be one and it will be run by a completely different set of people than those involved with the BR Trek movies—would be better set pre-Voyager than post-Voyager, IMO. Going farther into the future would involve ever increasingly fantastical technology and a time period too far removed from our present reality. 150 or 200 years into the future is plenty fantastical and plenty interesting, and there’s so much fertile ground there, given the backstories already set up over the course of TOS, TNG, DS9 and Voyager.… Read more »

P.S. And the possibility of a new Trek series being an internet series shown on Netflix, Amazon, iTunes or all three, is also worth considering.

Netflix maybe but lets not get carried away. I dont believe all the low budget fan movies do Star Trek any favours.

A new Trek series *should* be placed in the TOS or Pre-TOS era. Its hard though with the movies. I’d be fine with them doing a series set before (or leading up to and after) Nero’s arrival but Im not sure a studio would see it as something that would click.

its really a shame that Braga/Berman really dragged Trek into a ditch, beat it senseless and then shot in the head with Enterprise. I still find it nearly impossible to fathom that professional writers/producers could be so stupid with such a good premise.

#12. TUP – April 2, 2014

When they are crowd source funded they do. The data produced allows CBS to accurately frontload their marketing to the hardcore willing to pay highly profitable markups for official limited exclusive editions that a bargain-hunting mass market won’t.

#9. Cygnus-X1 – April 2, 2014

Actually, E already crossed over to an alternate universe and so many alternate timelines that I’ve lost count, so I can’t say that I could see Bad Robot getting the original cast and Coto together to play in their universe’s history as impossible. If it got them back on the air, I’d be satisfied.

As much as I would love a conclusion to both voyager and enterprise, it prob will never happen or appear on a tv a screen again.

But I would like an ongoing comic book series for voyager and enterprise.
Brannon braga did a great job with the ‘hive’ comic last year.

If I ever meet Brannon braga it might be worth mentioning.

The series on a whole, had this potential if they started out with stories in season 4. There is so much history between when we landed on the moon to when Kirk (or Pike) took command of the Enterprise. All the seasons had great shows and some were bad but that can be said of TOS, TNG, DS9 & VOY too. I just wish they had a chance at 7 years like the others did.

@10 – Matt, our post back in January was the official final press release from CBS.

It’s out in the UK in 2 weeks on 14th April, can’t wait, such a great season, although the finale can be completely ignored.

Sad. Sad. Sad.

This was the best season of the series, in which they had arrived at the multiple part story arcs, serialized in 2-3 episodes each. it was a brilliant formula for Star Trek & made this feel like a season of movies.

The “Mirror” episodes being a masterpiece unto themselves.

I maintain Enterprise’s vast superiority to Voyager & still feel hat it deserves a Kickstarter funded Romulan War mini-series on Netflix, as a proper send off.

The ONE season of Enterprise I’ve been looking forward to and can watch from beginning to end happily. Dont get me wrong, I like episodes from previous seasons but they really were doing it well in this season.

Probably the worst of the four seasons (budget had been cut, so there were a ton of bottle shows), but it should actually look the best on Blu-ray, as they shot digitally in Season 4 (no longer on film).

Awesome! Now how about CBS/Paramount approve Season 5 for production? Yeah, I know, it’s highly improbable that’ll see the light of day, but one can still dream, LOL!

#21: The worst of the four seasons?? Are you serious?? It’s the ONLY season of Enterprise that was brilliant!

As for season 5, that ship has sailed. There is no way Paramount/CBS will ever revisit this series. It’ll never happen.

I’m asking honestly — is Trek too expensive to produce for Netflix? Moreover, would it get watched / would folks join just to watch it?

@ 22. Mikey1091 – April 2, 2014

“Awesome! Now how about CBS/Paramount approve Season 5 for production? Yeah, I know, it’s highly improbable that’ll see the light of day, but one can still dream, LOL!”

I highly doubt that ever happening, but again Fox & NBC are bringing back “24” & ‘Heroes”, so who knows ?

I would love to see a new series set post Nemesis . We already seen the TOS era in TV series, movies & fan films, it is time to leave that era behind & move a 100 years or so after Nemesis.

Think Enterprise’s biggest let down was at it’s best, it was only ever good. Even with the mostly mediocre “Voyager” there are a few episodes of brilliance you can point to that hold up with some of the best episodes of the entire franchise. Not so with Enterprise. Enterprise’s most memorable episode is an episode where they are acting totally unlike the “real” characters.

#19. Khan was Framed! – April 2, 2014

I agree. The writing got so bad on VOY I couldn’t stand to hear the unfortunate actors, that had to speak the lines, torture their lips so I’d mute the sound and switch on the closed captions. I loved VOY’s cast and their characterizations but the direction the writing went…oh the humanity.

#25. Luke Forrester – April 2, 2014

Sorry, but I have to disagree about “THESE ARE THE VOYAGE(R)S”. The only reason that episode, where they totally acted like unreal versions of themselves, was “memorable” was because it was offensive on so many levels in usurping the show and its narrative to “honor” it by squeezing out another ersatz episode of TNG.

For the life of me I’ll never understand what valid metric CBS used [other than possibly made up marketing hype] to declare it a “fan favorite”.

By ‘before her time’ they clearly meant ‘long overdue’ or ‘not a moment too soon’.

Unless they’re referring to some vastly more interesting Enterprise than the one depicted on this show.

13. Disinvited – April 2, 2014

#12. TUP – April 2, 2014

Good point.

25. Jack – April 2, 2014 I’m asking honestly — is Trek too expensive to produce for Netflix? Moreover, would it get watched / would folks join just to watch it? Some folks would join just to watch it, but look at how long all of the Trek series and movies have been streaming on Netflix. Clearly they’re getting watched a lot, which means there’s already substantial demand on Netflix for Trek. If they premiered a brand new, never-before-seen series, there’s every reason to think that it would attract a high viewership if it was at least as good as the previous 5 Trek series. Regarding the cost of producing a new Trek series on Netflix, consider the best of the fan/unofficial Trek episodes. Take STC’s latest offering, Lolani. How much did that cost to make? Whatever “a shoestring budget” is. I’m guessing tens of thousands of dollars. And Lolani, even by modest estimation, you’d have to say is really not far from being franchise-caliber. Granted they’re saving money by doing a bottle episode without highly paid actors, but still—It shows how far you can go, and how good you can get, on a tiny budget. And it’s only their second attempt. Ep.3 might be even better. Phase 2’s “World Enough and Time” might serve as another example to illustrate the point. If Axanar turns out well, it’ll be the best example yet because it’s being made with the sort of professional actors that you’d love to have in a… Read more »

I strongly suspect that the next television incarnation of Star Trek will be a reboot of The Next Generation somehow. Either recast, or with some clever plotting ala Trek 2009.

Reasons:
No one outside of the nerd-sphere (myself included within) knows anything about DS9, Voyager, or Enterprise. So those are excluded from consideration. (I like the nerd-sphere I’m in, just saying…)
TNG was a pop culture phenom and a wide audience is familiar with its captain, its ship, and its basic crew.
TNG is about 25-30 years old, just old enough to be in hazy memory so the general audience won’t pick apart inconsistencies.
A new television TNG won’t trample on the new Star Trek movie series which can continue in perpetuity.

I’m guessing that somewhere within CBS there is an executive just waiting to relaunch this time sometime in the near future. It would drive sales of the older series, it would bring even higher profile to the movies, and could be sold in multiple countries now that Star Trek has been more firmly established in more places through the newest movies.

Thoughts?

that’s funny.. Manny Coto couldn’t be there for the extras filming because he has a JOB ;-P

#28, I was actually referring to the Mirror Universe episodes when I said an episode where they act totally unlike the “real” characters.

#32. jerr – April 3, 2014

j/k That or convenient excuse because they only wanted to assemble a party of the suspects in one room before they revealed the murderer.

#33. Luke Forrester – April 3, 2014

Surely, you can understand my confusion and that Paramount is in for a world of hurt if this concept of thinking of alternate universe Trek characters being “unreal” versions catches on. And I still assert that those holodeck created versions of the “real” characters were the most unreal even when I temporarily toy with your notion which I otherwise categorically reject.

@ VulcanCafe: I don’t think we will see a TV series of any kind until JJ Abrams is finished with his movies. It will be interesting to see if there is a fourth movie. If not, then I think a TV series might be a possibility. The market was saturated with Star Trek once, that mistake won’t be repeated in our lifetimes.

32. VulcanCafe – April 3, 2014

No one outside of the nerd-sphere (myself included within) knows anything about DS9, Voyager, or Enterprise.

This makes me curious about the ratings for those series.

I would assume that VOY and ENT would not have been greenlighted if ratings for DS9 had not been sufficiently high, though I do get the same impression as you in talking to people whom I would take as mainstream audience members—TNG did seem to have a broader appeal than DS9, not surprisingly. VOY is generally regarded by Trekkies and casual fans as being lower caliber than TNG. And ENT…well, we all know what happened there. If anybody knows a site that compares the ratings across these 4 series, please link me.

36. Lore – April 3, 2014

I don’t think we will see a TV series of any kind until JJ Abrams is finished with his movies. It will be interesting to see if there is a fourth movie. If not, then I think a TV series might be a possibility. The market was saturated with Star Trek once, that mistake won’t be repeated in our lifetimes.

Interesting point. Someone got too greedy back in mid-90s when they came up with the idea of running two Trek series contemporaneously. I’m guessing it was Berman’s bright idea, which Paramount thought would be profitable.

#36. Lore – April 3, 2014

You may be right. But if it comes thus to pass, it’ll be another case of CBS which is the old Paramount bumstumbling right past reaping significantly more profits from Trek. Les has said he doesn’t like Trek because he doesn’t understand it as entertainment and because that makes him feel he can’t make money from it. Well crowd source funding efforts stands to provide him with the information to precisely do just that. He needs to open his eyes to these opportunities if both he and new Paramount want to maximize the blockbusting profits of “the franchise”.

#38. Cygnus-X1 – April 3, 2014

The idea of two (or more) wasn’t bad. Running with it in an information vacuum, was. What they did was the equivalent of throwing bowls of spaghetti at the wall and hoping that at least one of them would stick.

#38. Cygnus-X1 – April 3, 2014

The result was old Paramount was always chasing the waves and not riding them, and THAT was what was bad.

#37. Cygnus-X1 – April 3, 2014

Hmmm…I believe it has been my experience that DS9 appealed more to those in the demographic that are traditionally regarded as “disenfranchised” than the sought after young white male with disposable income one.

I also believe that those that liked their Trek written well and with polish also seemed to be very admiring of it.

About the only faction that I can recall being totally ignorant of it were those who regarded it (apparently to some degree rightly so) as Paramount ripping off JMS’ BABYLON 5 and not worthy of being checked out? In fact, that may be the reason the mass market seems so ignorant of it because of the confusion in their minds between the two. They may be aware of DS9 but confuse it with BABYLON 5 or confabulate the two names as, DEEP SPACE 5, BABYLON 9, BABYLON SPACE 5, ETC.

40. Disinvited – April 3, 2014

#38. Cygnus-X1 – April 3, 2014. The idea of two (or more) wasn’t bad. Running with it in an information vacuum, was.

What do you mean, they didn’t promote/advertise VOY enough?

Another problem with VOY was that it seemed to have gotten the B-team in terms of writing. The stories were half-baked as a matter of course. Ron Moore quit because they didn’t want to do his darker version, which he wound up developing into his BSG reboot. And VOY did seem to have grown formulaic. VOY was when the technological solutions and technobabble jumped the shark. Maybe they could still have done a really great Trek series contemporaneously with DS9 if they’d had the writing talent…I’m not sure…the issue of the writing and the Trek-fatigue seem to blend such that I can’t tell where one ends and the other begins.

42. Disinvited – April 3, 2014 I believe it has been my experience that DS9 appealed more to those in the demographic that are traditionally regarded as “disenfranchised” than the sought after young white male with disposable income one. I hadn’t noticed that, but it’s possible. I suppose it could be because DS9 had regular characters who were oddballs and disenfranchised. The TNG cast were all high achievers who didn’t seem to have much trouble doing the right thing morally. DS9 had Quark—a shyster bartender, Odo—a freakish alien who grew up culturally isolated, Kira—a former insurrectionist/refugee from a conquered world, Dax—a sort of multiple-personality, sexually ambiguous alien, Cisco—the hero of the series arc, a single parent living with the loss of his wife…the only high achiever types were Worf and Bashir, and it’s revealed later in the series that the latter was genetically engineered. Even Martok was missing an eye. What I noticed most about the DS9 lovers back in the day was that they tended to be avid readers. For whatever reason, fans of printed fiction really took a shine to DS9. Maybe because DS9 focused much more on interpersonal melodrama than TNG had…maybe because DS9 was more deliberately paced. Action scenes were rare interruptions in the space opera. They may be aware of DS9 but confuse it with BABYLON 5 or confabulate the two names as, DEEP SPACE 5, BABYLON 9, BABYLON SPACE 5, ETC. Also possible. Though I got used to it and like it now, I… Read more »

#43. Cygnus-X1 – April 3, 2014

No, I mean, NBC, GULF-WESTERN, and Paramount didn’t understand the phenomenon of what Trek’s popularity actually was and how to capitalize on it for maximum possible returns.

Example: NBC had ratings data when Trek 1st aired but they hadn’t a clue that it was pulling in a desirable demographic that they could have sold to advertisers in a manner far superior to what they ended up doing.

42. Disinvited – April 3, 2014
I remember back when DS9 began. That was back in the day when a show was a big deal if it got a Mad Magazine Satire. The DS9 satire made fun of the Babylon 5 mix up. So some people saw it from the beginning.

Trekcore has the TNG S6/Chain of Command press release from CBS.

#46. Lore – April 3, 2014

Exactly my point, and for the record, I was one of them.

A Season 5 of “Star Trek Enterprise” is probably a pipe dream. Scott Bakula has moved on. He appeared on “NCIS – Los Angeles” a few weeks back. That was probably a back-door pilot for a spinoff, “NCIS – New Orleans”. It seems that CBS wants to exploit the “NCIS” brand like it did the “CSI” brand.
I wouldn’t buy the whole season 4, but I’d at least like a stand-alone Blu-Ray of “In A Mirror Darkly”. With those commentary and text tracks, and extras noted above.

I hope Scott Bakula gets another series. I think when Shatner interviewed him for “The Captains” he mentioned that he lost most of his “Quantum Leap” money in a divorce. Then Enterprise got cancelled early. He deserves a break. He’s given us some great performances over the years.
