Thoughts on the fifth Star Trek series, Enterprise

Picture I think the idea of Star Trek Enterprise is brilliant. The idea of going into a prequel essentially, a hundred years before Kirk�s Star Trek is smart on so many levels. The expectations of where we will have gone are eliminated because the audience now is so educated from Next Gen, Voyager and Deep Space Nine.

The design, Herman Zimmerman, Bob Blackman and others are able to do� The bridge has practical lights on it and there are things to hold on to., The costumes have pockets in them. I envy all this. Don�t get me wrong, but I think there�s something assessable about this show taking place not too far from the time that we live in now.

I went to greet our newest captain and welcome him to the family. Scott Bakula, wonderful, wonderful actor who seems to be having a good time. All the rumour around Paramount is that this cast is gelling wonderfully and that the show�s in great shape so let�s hope that�s the case.
