I don't know if any of you are Star Trek Fans or not but I think UPN is out of their minds. It seems that UPN thinks that Enterprise isn't getting the ratings it wants. And this last Season (Season 4) is the last ditch effort to increase ratings. My point of view is that people only watch UPN is for Star Trek. Nobody has any other reason too. Except Wrestling. All other Sci-fi shows are on the Sci-fi channel including Star Trek. The season will end with the creation of the Federation. But I think we lose a lot by not seeing more beginnings of the Federation. Just saying hey the Federation was just created, we are done now. Just doesn't work out good. Well one thing that can be said of Star Trek, it just doesn't want to die. Their is sure to be another Star Trek show soon after Enterprise ends on Friday, May 13, 2005. But it may not be with UPN and Paramount who want to leave the sci-fi story line.

Hmm. I never stopped and considered Myst Fans - Startrek Fans oneinthesame-ness, interesting. I never got into Enterprise like I did Voyger or Original Series for some reason, I hope they cancel this but start a StarTrek really far in the future, that would be cool.

I haven't seen Star Trek in forever. Is Enterprise the one with Picard? That was my favorite out of all the different Star Trek series. If I'd known it was on UPN, I would have watched it. They should have advertised better!

I remember back in 1977 or '78 when I was still at college. The original Star Trek TV series had been gone for years, but such a cult following had arisen around the re-runs that the show was actually more popular then than when it was still in production.

So one evening Leonard Nimoy visited our campus to deliver a talk in the auditorium. He opened his remarks by stating "Do you realize that it's been nine years since Star Trek was cancelled?" The irony wasn't lost on the crowd, and a thunderous ovation followed.

Oh, it was later in that same lecture that he let us know that the first Star Trek movie was in production. Another ovation... deafening!

Please spread the word and the link, It might give Enterprise another shot and keep Star Trek alive.

I guess Myst Fans and Star Trek Fans are oneinthesame-ness and yes their was a new Star Trek show on UPN for the past three years called Enterprise. Supposedly they went back before the time of Kirk and were telling the story of how it all came to be, the whole Federation and everything. They really kicked this season up a notch, considering they were talking about cancellation before the start of this season. If Enterprise is going, it is going out with a BANG. Almost three plus double episodes back to back. And a two back to back three part episode. Its on Fridays at 8pm, I don't miss a show.

You're two-thirds there already, HG. UPN stands for United Paramount Network. Paramount owns them (and Ted Turner is fuming but that's a long story) already. But CBS? AAAK! We'd end up with Survivor with the cast of WWF - or CSI South Central starring Bernie Mac!

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/1072.gif Didn't realise what UPN's P stood for! Got the information about who pulled rope around StarTrek from several fan sides. Don't want CBS to turn it in some stupid cross over program. Hmm although the casts of StarTrek would win all those "Contests" of course. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

CSI combined with StarTrek might give a nice spinoff: solving cases throughout the Galaxy and from every possible time period.
But as I understand you Bernie M. (don't now the man) should be either far away from it or a silent corpse. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif

Oh and I did not ment to assimilate those 3 to one organisation, rather i ment to take them over myself and turn them into SF and StarTrek friendly coorporations. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Star Trek has been a wonderful franchise.

We didn't have a TV when the original series was on its five year mission (only made it through three years). I made up for it by watching the reruns on local TV for years. I even have them video taped (on Beta). http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

The Star Trek movies definitely renewed interest in the storyline. I especially enjoyed the humor in ST IV "The Voyage Home".

Fortunately, Star Trek The Next Generation had a seven year run. I loved the cast of TNG. I was glad to see the original cast pass the movie torch to TNG with "Generations".

Time constraints prevented me from getting more into the Deep Space Nine and Voyager series, but I enjoyed the shows I did watch. I hadn't gotten as familiar with the casts, so didn't feel as much of a bond there.

I felt "Enterprise" was a fresh new idea for the Star Trek universe. The cast members were interesting and the idea of seeing how it all got started was good. Again with time constraints I didn't watch as often as I would have liked. Now that they've cancelled it, I wish I had been more deliberate in my attention.

As fans, it is hard to see something we really like go by the wayside, but I'd say over the years, we Star Trek fans have been treated to some inventive, entertaining shows and movies. It will be interesting to see if they let the franchise die or look for a new outlet.

"Let's see what's out there" James T. Kirk
"Live long and prosper" Mr. Spock
"Spock, you pointy eared freak" Dr. Leonard McCoy
"I'm giving it all she's got Captain" Montgomery Scott
"Where are your nuclear wessels?" Mr. Chekov
"Make it so" Jean Luc Picard
"That's funny" Commander Data

I kindof like star trek, but I am not into it much. I wach a little TNG and Enterprise now and then.


Actually my favorite sci-fi thing is a series of books: the Foundation series. Anyone else read them?

PS
Has anyone else noticed similarities between the early R. Daneel Olivow and Data? I mean...
-Both have positronic brains
-Both struggle with emotion (Daneel later gets better at this, and even goes on to make bots more emotionally-advanced than he is)
-They look similar
-Both were created by genius scientists

and I am sure there are more, I just can't think of them right now.

Anyways, as for quotes, here are some from Foundation...

"Violence is the last resort of the incompetent." Salvor Hardin
"It is a poor atom blaster that doesn't point both ways." Salvor Hardin
"Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right." Salvor Hardin
"The closer to the truth, the better the lie, and the truth itself is the best lie of all." Preem Palver
"I exercise restraint." Hari Seldon http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
(dunno if those are exact or not, but they are close at least)
