a new Shatner album.

Also, I'm interested if Ben Folds is the producer. That song from "Fear of Pop" is kind of neat.

Company officials are hoping the new enterprise will appeal...
Do you suppose that was intentional?

Apparently there's some concern about the fate of Enterprise. Apparently, UPN promised that both Enterprise and Jake 2.0 were safe for the season, but now that Jake's been cancelled, some folks are concerned about the quality of UPN's promises.
So far it's just gossip about people on-set being worried about their jobs, and I know that at my job any little thing can make us all worry for no reason, but it's still interesting.

I've become accustomed to Quantum's furrows.

You'll have to get used to telling a whole new character to "Shut up, [blank]." ( Although Trip hasn't required that nearly as much as he used to.)
You know, I'm not going to miss it because I think it's that good but it's become comfortable to me.
I'm with akg- it's not great, but it has gotten better. (And TNG started getting consistenly good in its 4th season, so Enterprise should get that same chance.) And on a purely selfish note, I don't want to have to find another place to get my Connor Trinneer fix.

I would be sad just because it would mean the first time in years and years with no new Trek on a weekly basis. That's what I'm accustomed to. But that's also part of the problem. Countless editorials over the years have extolled the virtues of the Phoenix plan: let Trek die for a decade or so and then people will care more when it starts up again, reinvigorated.

Personally, I think this season is the best Trek's had since DS9 ended. Granted, that's only two years of Voyager and two of Enterprise, but still, four years is a long time for most TV series. Anyway, it would be a shame to kill it off just as it's showing signs of coming back to life.

I feel rather conflicted about any reports of the show being cancelled. I want to see if it can fulfill its potential, but on the other hand, I think the Trek franchise as a whole needs time to heal and regenerate itself. Hmmmm...

I was all for the "Phoenix plan" (great name, by the way) back before this show started, but now I think it would be more harmful.
I totally agree with you, Cleo. Now all they'll remember is the negativity from this show and if it's cancelled earlier than seven years, I don't think they'll ever bounce back with another series.

Heh. Is Henry Higgins there with you?

That said, I recently read a great online article about how fan campaigns to keep shows on the air simply never work, or at least not in today's environment. I remember the advice given was to hit the companies in the pocketbook in other areas (since money is the reason shows get canceled anyway): Angry at The WB? Cancel your AOL. Angry at UPN? Do something to Viacom. But I doubt that would work either. No one watching means no one's watching.
The only comfort I take is that it's still UPN's top show. Doesn't that leave them no choice but to keep it on?

Is it really? This somehow surprises and depresses me. It doesn't seem like they treat it like their top show.
it's still UPN's top show.

Roswell was saved twice, and the Firefly folks got a DVD set. I think Angel got its fifth season in small part due to a huge postcard/email campaign (but mostly due to the addition of James Marsters). I think a write-in campaign might help, and it couldn't hurt.
I thought WWE was the top show/program on UPN.

There seems to be some hint in one of those articles that they'd consider switch networks...that would be interesting.
