The Blu-ray release of Enterprise’s first season is more highly anticipated than you might think considering the series got cancelled after four years. After the end of Star Trek DS9 in 1999 and Voyager in 2001 fans of Star Trek generally agreed that the franchise needed a rest. DS9 fans couldn’t imagine another epic storyline in their lifetime and Voyager fans agreed with critics that Star Trek should be more than special effects and Jeri Ryan’s boobs. However, the executive producers of what was to be Enterprise, Brannon Braga and Rick Berman, tried to combine both DS9 and Voyager concepts. The end result being that Enterprise was of good quality but also far too familiar.

After four years of continuously seeing the ratings drop UPC cancelled Enterprise in 2005. Star Trek finally got it’s well deserved rest until the J.J. Abrams reboot. Personally, I got better memories of watching Enterprise than I have got of Voyager. Of the latter I was little more than a casual viewer who had the feeling that every episode was pretty much alike. Enterprise stood out mostly because the universe in which the show operated wasn’t as settled. The result was that there was genuine drama akin to DS9 (especially in the latter 2 seasons). As for Jeri Ryan’s big boobs that was thrown into the mix, at first sub-commander T’Pol (Jolene Blalock) was a very obvious continuation of the character Seven of Nine and was intended to cater to the male audience. However, the character of T’Pol and the acting of Jolene Blalock certainly overcame skeptics. The only major flaw Enterprise inherited from Voyager was the under use of secondary characters such as Malcolm Reed, Hoshi Sato and Travis Mayweather.

In the end, as I said before, Enterprise was just too familiar to fans. It continued the procedural space-opera format while fans were wanting a more broader serialized drama that explores different aspects of Star Trek. If rumors are true and Star Trek is going to get another live-action TV-show in a few years, than I think it is in good hands with Bad Robot Productions. Until then, we will have to make do with the Blu-ray releases of Star Trek TNG and Enterprise, but that is hardly a chore now is it!

As UPN shot Enterprise in HD there is very little needed to do for a Blu-ray release (unlike TNG). The first season of Enterprise on Blu-ray is scheduled for a March 26th release. At present, season 1 retails for $ 77.86 on Amazon.com, which I think is rather expensive. Try your luck with some coupons to bring that price down.
