Star Trek may be dead. Long live Star Trek

Appearantly, there is some show called "Enterprise" on UPN, and the rumors have started that the crew even knows it's going to be cancelled.

To paraphrase Sherlock Holmes, after I had watched Enterprise a while, I did my best to forget about it. I like most of the ST shows (even DS9, the Babylon 5 clone). The nebula fight in The Wrath of Khan is my favorite theatrical space battle scene ever, and is only topped by Battlestar Galactica. Both give you that World War 2 submarine warfare feel that (IMHO) real space battles would be like.

Voyager was mostly a loss, what I did bother to watch, but I'd had high hopes for Enterprise. The Romulan war and pre-Federation politics would have been SO cool. They had a perfectly good story line, but NO, they had to have a Vulcan with few clothes, and time traveling.

Bah, I'm getting too bitter. Maybe Enterprise will die, and they'll have to go back to the drawing board.
