Enterprise: The Expanse (2003)
This is where they all went wrong
The ratings where bad and they needed a fix to boost the numbers.
They thought that by introducing a story that will be played out trough an entire season would do just that. While that in itself is not bad idea the whole Xindi story arch messes up the time-line and integrity.
In all following series there has never been the slightest reference to a race like the Xindi. The destruction of a continent and millions of people would have made into any history book. Again never was something like this mentioned.
For me this is where the series started to commit suicide. It therefore came to me as no surprise that the series had to end.
Making a prequel is always dangerous many have failed but it is possible to do it right. Unfortunately this series started of with a bad opening tune (which they admit as it is changed by placing a beat under it) which doesn't give the startrek feeling. Then the design of the ship which i think is not that good, it looks to advanced and not with my biggest imagination can i see that the next model would be the NCC-1701.
Anyways better would have been if they did more with the Andorians (which they did in the 4th season but by then it was to late...)
No, it is best not to see this as a startrek but as a 'stand-alone' scifi series.
Enterprise: The Xindi (2003)
And here it all went bad
In a desperate attempt to raise the ratings the added a continuing storyline. They should never have done this.
They meet a race called the Xindi who are a species that has 5 'sub-races'. Someone from the future told them that in 400 year their home world will be destroyed by humans. They decide to do what every civilized species would do.... NOT. They build a weapon for testing killing 7 million humans!! Then they continue to work on a weapon that will destroy earth completely.
Why was there never a record in any of the series that earth was almost annihilated??? and this is only the beginning of errors. Stupid story lines are created to reveal Blaloks body in an attempt to raise ratings. It's a miracle that there was a 4th season.
This episodes introduces the Xindi and sends them to the expanse where the most sophisticated spaceships are destroyed and bodies mutilated etc. However enterprise who is no where near as sophisticated as most manages to do OK in the expanse. Sure the get some minor problems but still. Very bad episode starting a very bad season. If it wasn't tied to Star Trek it might have been a good SF season.
Enterprise: Regeneration (2003)
OH NO The borg
This is the worst episode of the second season. The borg have NO business in this episode. The borg where first introduced by Q in the episode Q-Who of The Next Generation. There was no report of this episode/encounter which is very odd for race as special as the Borg. The doctor gets infected with nanoprobes but the result is pretty much a joke. It took Data in the episode Best of both worlds all his knowledge and effort to bring Loqutus (picard) back human and it ONLY worked cause he wasn't fully assimilated. This episode breaks down almost everything regarding borg and the following episodes about borg. Perhaps not as bad as the xindi stuff in season 3 but this episode is a disgrase to all trek fans.
