Even with its 9/11 influences, I always found Enterprise to be one of the more optimistic Trek shows. The Xindi arc, which was their biggest 9/11 parable, ended with Archer making peace with the Xindi and persuading them that they were wrong to attack Earth. That’s a very Star Trek kind of message. Dark things happened on Enterprise all the time, but the crew always showed that they were at their best when they stuck to Starfleet ideals.

Totally agree. I did a complete series re-watch last year and you are spot on.
