    Haha that's fair. I have to admit I haven't watched Enterprise since it first aired and I was disappointed at the time, so maybe if I watch it again my opinion will improve.

    I am not liking Enterprise.

    The Captain is a Mary Sue, and what's his name, Trip? His head is too big for his body.

    Porthos is coo though

    Enterprise was a decent show. I thought so at the time, and re-watching it I feel the same way so far.

    I think people at the time were just burned out on Star Trek.

    And honestly, anything that followed TNG and DS9 that wasn't awesome was going to be viewed poorly. Didn't help that people had already suffered through Voyager only to get another trek that didn't live up to the best of them. It was still decent though.

    That's a pretty damn big ship to only have a Lt. Cmndr. I'm starting to think the ship was re-purposed into a warship, and may carry some smaller ships with it. Maybe she'll command one of those?
    You could be right. My brain jumped straight to something different. Though compared to the apparent size of the bridge I'd say the ship isn't that big. Smaller than a constitution class at least.
    I dunno dude. They'll change the design I'm sure, but right now looking at them side by side that Discovery bridge compared to the saucer looks smaller than a constitution bridge to saucer to me. I think it's supposed to be a fairly big saucer, plus that ring around the bridge on the saucer. I'm curious about that. One bussard collector per nacelle as compared to three. I think it's supposed to be big ship.

    Pumped for the show. Honestly I wish it was set more during the TNG era, but I guess with the rebooted films being set during the original series, it makes sense they're keeping it around then. I definitely think there's going to be a captain, the fact that they said they want something different than the point of view of a captain makes me think they mean from a different point of view of the leader of a ship, which I think is long overdue!

    Also genuinely confused about those saying Voyager is worse than Enterprise. Enerprise began to find its feet after two series (same with TNG and Voyager) but the first two series were the worst series of Star Trek I've ever seen. I think it was cancelled at the wrong time though, I would have loved to see another series.

    Voyager was, in parts, a good show. I rank characters like Seven of Nine and The Doctor as among the best in the entire Star Trek Universe. Tuvok was great, the romance between Paris and B'Elanna was well done, and I'd say after the first two series it became an entertaining show. Granted, it came with the magic reset button, technobabble and Neelix, but at least it knew what it was dammit!

    I actually like ol' Neelix. He's a bro.

    I was fine with Kes, but I also think they got rid of her at a good time. If they'd kept going with her Mary Sue character it would have gotten a little old.

    I wish they had done more with Ensign Vorik. It would be interesting to have a show with more than one "alien race" character of the same race so we can see different personality types of different species. I'd like to see some Bolian main characters.

    Bryan Fuller gone? This does not bode well.

    Edit: Still an executive producer so nerves a bit less shot now.

    Executive producer doesn't usually mean much on a show though I find. Feels like a nominal position to hide the fact he's not showrunner any more.
