Synopsis


Industry rumors were flying in 2004 that the fourth season of Star Trek: Enterprise would be its last. Whether true or not, the cast and production crew proceeded with such enthusiasm and confidence that one would think the series had been renewed for the next ten years! The time frame is still the mid-22nd century, and the central setting remains the Enterprise NX-01, Earth's very first Warp Five starship. As ever, the ship's skipper is the bold and adventuresome Capt. Jonathan Archer (Scott Bakula), while numbering among the crew are sexy Vulcan science officer T'Pol (Jolene Blalock), resourceful chief engineer Trip (Connor Trinneer), haughty British munitions expert Malcolm (Dominic Keating), helmsman and space-travel vet Travis (Anthony "A.T." Montgomery), brainy communications officer Hoshi (Linda Park), and ebullient Denobulan doctor Phlox (John Billingsley). Season four begins with a two-part time-travel episode, as Archer and the crew are catapulted back to World War II, the outcome of which may be negatively altered by the ongoing Temporal Cold War (as established in season one). Things take a upbeat turn when, after a double victory in space, the crew returns to a hero's welcome on Earth -- but is all this hero worship a good thing, or has rampaging xenophobia reared its ugly head? And in later development, a criminal left over from the dreaded Eugenics Wars is back in business, and the results may spell the end of humankind. Devotees of the original Star Trek and its spin-offs will, as in previous seasons, enjoy the subtle references to things to come in future decades. Especially worth noting is a midseason three-part story arc which has a direct relation to the classic Star Trek episode "Amok Time." In addition, several significant guest stars show up in the roles that have made them famous (or rather, will make them famous if one accepts the premise that Enterprise is merely a prologue). Ultimately, the season concludes as the Vulcan T'Pol receives some important news that will have a major, and very positive, effect on her future (can there possibly be a spin-off series for T'Pol in the offing?) -- but first, the Enterprise crew, and indeed all of Starfleet Command, is challenged by a dangerous, alien-hating isolationist. ~ Hal Erickson

    Probably the most fun season of the four.

    Going into the fourth season they knew it was the end, so as the show runners said, they decided to just have fun with it and tell the stories they'd been wanting to tell. One of my favorites was the two-episode Mirror Universe...it was cleverly done to tie it into a seemingly insignificant part of another episode in another series. The Terra Prime story arc is where the series ended for me, with the last episode having some very creative writing and good intentions (again, sort of tying it into another episode from another series), but it was poorly executed which made it seem like a half-hearted attempt by Rick and Brannon (the writers of the last episode) and that they were just trying to get the show over with.

    Saving the best for last

    The origins of the Federation, the reason Klingons looked different in The Original Series, genetic augments, even the mirror universe. Enterprise Season 4 should rank among the greatest seasons of Star Trek ever. A couple more episodes with more original plots may have benefited the season, as would have better development for Hoshi, Mayweather, and Reed, but there is so much good in this season that purchase is a must, even if you avoid the other three seasons. Beautiful in Blu-Ray, and some interesting special features round it out, the last season of Star Trek (hopefully, only to date) is a must buy.

    Final Season Extravaganza

    If you love Star Trek, you'll enjoy this season set. Although not near as good as the 3rd season, it is composed of many independent story lines that make for a nice deviation from the continuous season 3 story line and plot. When a show gets cancelled, they have to accelerate episodes and find a good ending. This is unfortunate but it has happened. Pick up this set and keep it for your collector's edition sets. Always remember the great run Star Trek has had and watch these episodes from time to time.

    AFTER THE XINDI CRISIS IT WAS SLIPPING DOWN HILL

    ALTHOUGH I CONSIDER MYSELF A TREKKIE, I COULDN'T FIND MUCH TO ROOT ABOUT. CAPTAIN ARCHER WAS TOO ROBOTIC. SCOTT BAKULA STYLE WAS A POOR CHOICE, FOR A CAPTAIN OF THE 1ST WARP 5 SHIP. THE SERIES LACKED THE EMOTION NEEDED FOR THOSE EARLY DAYS OF SPACE TRAVEL. TPOL WAS A GREAT CHOICE AS THE VULCAN AS WAS THE REST OF THE CREW. HOWEVER THE WRITERS FADED OUT FAST AFTER THE XINDI CRISIS. I WOULD RATE IT 3 STARS. NOT UP TO TYPICAL STAR TREK STANDARDS.

    Nice video quality, better than the first 3 seasons. There are good short story arcs that span 2-4 episodes each. That's a nice contrast to the Xindi plot that spanned the entire 3rd season. I know the series is seen as weaker than its predecessors, but I think airing season 4 on Fridays helped kill the series. I know I forgot to watch it sometimes because it was on Fridays.

    Best Season

    This season was a highlight for Enterprise and Star Trek as a whole. Manny Coto (of 24 fame) did a great job turning the show around. It is too bad the show was canceled after this season, because there were SO many ways they could have gone, and would have gone. Get this season if you enjoy Star Trek

    The final season of Enterprise comes to Blu-Ray in a stunning set. It helps that the show was done in hi-def (the only one of all the Trek series), so they had an easier time converting this one. The quality is excellent, the picture is absolutely magnificent, crisp and clean.

    It took 4 years for the producers to realize that a Star Trek show especially a prequel show has to have some respect for Classic Star Trek. They really did a good job bringing new ideas into this show and incorporating nuances from Classic Trek into the mix. And it looks great on Blu-ray.
