Reflections On 10 Years of Trek-less TV May 13, 2015by Jared Whitley , Filed under: CBS/Paramount,ENT,Trek on TV , 237 comments
Once a franchise has been around as long as Star Trek – and seen so many highlights – the opportunity for milestones multiply like Tribbles on their honeymoon. 2012 was the 25th anniversary of TNG. 2013 was the 20th anniversary of DS9. This year is the 20th anniversary of VOY. Next year is the 50th anniversary of TOS.
BUT TODAY is actually a milestone of a low-light: the 10th anniversary since a new episode of Star Trek aired on TV.
Love them or not, one can’t deny that Creation Entertainment has built an enduring calendar of annual events. If you’ve never been to a convention put on by Creation, they are indeed a bit different than most pop-culture conventions. The first thing to strike a visitor is that these events are fairly low-key affairs. That’s not to say that they’re not very well attended; there’s a healthy crowd, but it’s not shoulder-to-shoulder, and definitely once you’re past picking up your registration badge, not the typical bumper-car experience. They tightly control the daily number of attendees to make sure that every person at the event can make it into the main session rooms to enjoy the experience.
A Star Trek new fan film has released its first full trailer. "Star Trek Horizon" takes us to Star Trek: Enterprise’s the 22nd century and the Romulan War. Watch the trailer and learn more about the show below.CBS/Paramount,DS9,ENT,TNG,TOS,Trek Franchise,VOY , comments closed

Star Trek: Enterprise Season 4 Blu-ray review April 28, 2014by Matt Wright , Filed under: DVD/Blu-ray,ENT , comments closed
So we’ve finally come to Season 4 of Enterprise, often considered the best of the series. It is a bittersweet ending, going out on a high note, but it’s sad to think that this is the last TV series of the entire franchise, canceled after only four seasons. What we have in this final season is generally very good, we are treated to excellent multi-part story arcs about the Eugenics Wars, Vulcans, Andorians, Orions, and Klingons (oh my!) plus the mirror universe is revisited one last time. Read on for the review of the excellent Season 4 Blu-ray set.

Star Trek Enterprise Season 4 is due out at the end of this month, April 29th (to be exact). With that time fast approaching CBS has now officially sent out finalized details of the Blu-ray discs of this highly anticipated season, widely considered the best season of the series.
We have new excellent sounding documentaries. “In Conversation: Writing Star Trek Enterprise,” an exclusive, 90-minute writing staff reunion special, which includes Brannon Braga, Mike Sussman, André Bormanis, David Goodman, Chris Black, Phyllis Strong, and Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. As with the previous seasons there is also a new four-part documentary “Before Her Time: Decommissioning Enterprise,” which charts the last season of Enterprise. Plus there are new episode commentaries too. Read on for the full details from the press release.
Star Trek: Enterprise Season 3 Blu-ray review January 11, 2014by Matt Wright , Filed under: DVD/Blu-ray,ENT,Review , comments closed
We have come to Season 3 in the Blu-ray release schedule, this is the season many feel Enterprise became a show worth watching. Season 3 contains the season long arc of the Xindi threat. It also contains some great one-shot stories outside of the main Xindi narrative such as “Twilight” and “Similitude”, and a couple of pretty lame ones too, such as “Extinction” which is called “one of the singularly most embarrassing episodes of Star Trek I’ve been involved with” by Brannon Braga in the documentary on the set. Read on for the full review of this generally excellent season.

Brannon Braga gave Enterprise fans a little gift today when he posted a picture of the just filmed Writer’s Reunion for Star Trek: Enterprise to Twitter.
In the photo are: Andre Bormanis, Chris Black, Phyllis Strong, David A. Goodman, Brannon Braga, Mike Sussman, Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens.
The previous reunions done for the TNG and ENT Blu-ray sets have all been great. Look forward to seeing this on the Enterprise Season 4 Blu-ray set, expected in mid-2014.

Enterprise Season 3 Blu-ray full details! November 12, 2013by Matt Wright , Filed under: DVD/Blu-ray,ENT , comments closed
Star Trek Enterprise Season 3 is due out in the new year, January 7th, 2014 in North America. With that time fast approaching CBS has now officially sent out the details of the Blu-ray discs and the revised cover art (it still basically the same, but uses corrected Season 3 images of T’Pol and Archer).
As we’ve come to expect from the Blu-ray bonus material team of Roger Lay, Jr. and Robert Meyer Burnett there is a new 3-part documentary charting the change in tone and direction that took place for Season 3 called “In a Time of War”. They also have an interesting sounding new feature called “Temporal Cold War: Declassified” which as the name implies is about the temporal cold war, it contains interviews with the writers and producers about what else might have gone on with the temporal cold war arc if Season 3 hadn’t changed directions. Plus there are new episode commentaries. Read on for the full details from the press release. (more…)

Star Trek: Enterprise – Season 2 Blu-ray review August 15, 2013by Matt Wright , Filed under: DVD/Blu-ray,ENT,Review , comments closed
Conventional Trekker wisdom says that Enterprise didn’t get good until Season 3, but as I looked over Season 2’s episodes I was a little bit surprised to see how many episodes I looked forward to revisiting. There are some very good episodes nestled throughout Season 2, though the less said about “Precious Cargo”, the better. As Scott Bakula says in the cast reunion feature on the set, about half-way through season 2 things changed for the better. I’m inclined to agree. Read on for the full review of Enterprise Season 2 on Blu-ray!
