Slashdot | Rick Berman: Enterprise May Not Suck Next Year

Slashdot | Rick Berman: Enterprise May Not Suck Next Year

Though this article was written last year, it still applies today.

I must admit that this year was WAY better than last. Especially the WTF season finale with the space Nazi. (Can't Godwin's Law somehow be invoked?)


Anyway here's a Braga quote about next season.. :
from TrekWeb: http://www.trektoday.com/news/060704_02.shtml

Instead of a storyline that unfolds over the course of an entire year, season four will be comprised of a series of "very high-concept mini-arcs", Berman said. "Just as when we did Star Trek: First Contact, we couldn't do a movie about Picard and company saving the future from being destroyed, we can't do another season-long on Enterprise that involves Archer and company trying to save humanity. On the other hand, we don't feel that we want to go back to the season one and season two concept of 'we're out there exploring space,' period."
::rolls eyes::
Wasn't this supposed to be a prequel? How about the formation of the Federation? Fast forward and deal with Future Guy and his people? Origins of Section 31? Check out the Founders, Cardassians, Ferengi, The Borg: see what those fools are up to? Go to Risa? I can NOT believe that Berman and Braga have all of this information and free ideas from Trek mythology and all they can come up with is space Nazis. Someone Jewish please complain. I know they HAVE TO really sick of people using Nazis in everything. Germans MUST BE tired of being reminded of that dark time. People who sympathize with the Nazi cause should be annoyed.
The more I type the angrier I get. I have to ask myself, why do I even bother to watch the show?
Hope. Denial. Addiction. Tradition. Escape.
All of the above.
Fascinating? Illogical.
