Slashdot is reporting that "Enterrpise" is on the ropes. Hmm - could that have something to do with:
- The generally lame plot-lines they've pursued? (ooh, Vulcan emotions. No one's explored that topic before)
- The non-serious way they've dealt with enemies? "Look, those guys are trying to kill us. Set phasers on Stun".
- The completely derivative nature of last season's xindi plot (look, a sneak attack on Earth using terror tactics! That couldn't possibly be our commentary on the post 9/11 world!)
I've been frustrated with the Star Trek universe for years. Paramount needs to send Berman and anyone who looks like Berman on a permanent vacation, and find a real set of writers. For starters, they could look at some of the alumni from SG-1...
