The Enterprise Canon List

Disclaimer: in the course of watching of a show, there are often few or many episodes which are awesome, some which are good, some follow arcs, and others are fillers. Other times the show grows stale or rotten over time with either bad writing and/or simply ran out of ideas. As frustrating as this becomes, we should always look back at the fun we had with the series and treasure it. Particularly with Star Trek there are many fans with many particular tastes and favorites. Enterprise was the last of a wildly popular franchise looking to inspire humanity into becoming more and presenting the viewer not only with a glimpse of the life we may find in cosmos, but reflect upon new cultures while reexamining our own thereby revealing our own uniqueness.

Enterprise may have come out a bit prematurely. After three shows with TNG, DS9, and Voyager running seven seasons each with many plots dusted and redone over and over again, Enterprise took a look at the first steps of humanity into an early warp culture where the fastest speed was warp 5. The popularity already waning in the former installments finally caught up and the franchise were cancelled. I believe had the show been broadcast now (after a period of at least 10 years had past) , the show would have been better and fans would gladly flock to the show even more than they already had. It is fun rewatching these episodes now as it almost really is like watching a newly made Star Trek show.

The following list represents the collection of Enterprise episodes I believe to fit well with established Star Trek canon and lore. You may disagree with me or like to add another episode, but each to his own. Those episodes that are not included may have been fun and exciting in their own right, however, there may have been an element within them that I found overdone as in previous Star Trek shows or contradicted the history of Star Trek. In the end, it was a well worthwhile show and I highly recommend it.
