Enterprise DVDs are currently being planned for release in overseas markets, a Paramount representative said recently.
Willem Goverde from Paramount Netherlands reportedly told the Netherlands Star Trek Fan Club the Enterprise European VHS line is being discontinued due to poor sales. Instead, Paramount intends to release the series on DVD in season box sets, similar to Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
There are currently plans for season one to be released in Europe (Region 2) at the end of 2003, Goverde told fan club members, though the exact street date has yet to be determined. Subsequent seasons will follow in similar box sets.
With Deep Space Nine DVDs already on the shelves, Paramount has started putting together their Voyager sets. Again, each season will be present in similar format to The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, although there are no release dates available at this stage.
Please note that this information only applies to Europe (Region 2). There are currently no details on planned DVD releases of Enterprise in the United States or other parts of the world.
The original article can be found in Dutch here at the Netherlands Star Trek fan club. Thanks to Bert Cielen for this!

Update May 2, 2003: Paramount Home Entertainment Netherlands has contacted TrekToday to inform us that the information given at the fan club meeting was incorrect and there are currently no plans for Enterprise or Voyager DVDs in Region 2. We sincerely apologize for the error.
Bad News! You news notice is wrong, no releases to happen.

While on the subject of "Enterprise", the producers seem to be getting very desperate. They are introducing the Borg with the episode "Regeneration". Very bad move as there is not supposed to be any knowledge of the Borg before the episodes on Next Generation where they are introduced. But with no other series on TV, I guess that screwing up the timeline & doing a little revisionist history rewriting can occur.

So the information was actually given by a Paramount empolyee in the first place?

I wouldn't rule out Enterprise appearing after all, contrary to Paramount's claims (there's often no smoke without fire). The VHS releases in the UK are sinking fast (I combination I think of people buying the DVD boxsets and... just general lack of interest in Enterprise). Don't forget Parmount are still releasing the VHS tapes, and want to sell them, so they're bound to deny a possible DVD release.

Incidentally, while Voyager is often looked as being poor quality Trek, the Voyager VHS tapes sold the greatest numbers in the UK - that's why Paramount Europe wanted to release Voyager on DVD first!

Enterprise is in dire straights, the ratings suck, they're losing fans left and right, and releasing the DVDs now could potentially build up interest in the new direction of season 3

Enterprise VHS is selling quite poorly in Europe, and if they're going to go to that kind of trouble there, they may as well across the baord it

Perhaps they should just cut their losses and put the series on auto-destruct & end it all. After all NBC cut their losses with TOS by ending it at 3 yrs.

They've stopped the UK VHS releases now. Looks like they will be on DVD sooner rather than later...
