The other shoe finally fell. UPN and Paramount have announced the cancellation of Enterprise, effective at the end of the season, where the finale will air on May 13th. This marks the first Trek series since the original to end prematurely since the original, and it will also be the first time since the debut of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1987 that there isn’t a Trek series in production. I’m actually sorry to see it go – I didn’t think it was as bad as some made out. What will we do? Update 2/4: Berman doesn’t understand why Enterprise didn’t get the ratings – perhaps putting it up against SCI FI Friday was a bad idea, hmmm? I sense a clue-by-four is needed. And he also adds that the show won’t be shopped to another network.
I mentioned in my review of the Crusade DVD Box Set that JMS was miffed that they had edited the commentary track he did, against his agreement. Well, as part of a larger post, JMS says he and WB came to an agreement that all future pressings of the Crusade DVDs will no longer have the commentary track in question, as per their original agreement of “…use it all, including the explanation of what happened, or use none of it.”
