    Due to the stupid decision to feature Star Trek: Enterprise on the UPN instead of syndication I cannot watch it. I live in Western Michigan and there are no UPN affiliates in my area.
    I never really liked DS9 and I hated Voyager, but the new series intrigues me and I would like to see at least the premiere episode.
    If anyone could tape the pilot for me I would be more than happy to reimburse them for the cost of the tape and shipping. Please e-mail me if you can help me with this.

    Some WB stations are carrying it on Saturday. I'd give them a call. UPN & WB are swapping shows when both channels are not available in a given market.

    You need a Canadian satellite dish Jasen [​IMG] . Enterprise is all over the Canadian dishes... UPN, Space, NewVR, NewRO, City, AChannel, etc. etc. etc.

    I can't believe that I am actually looking forward to this, as well. Oh hell, I'm really looking forward to it. But I agree with the TV Guide article that stated a Trek-free season or two might have been wise. Voyager left a bad taste in our collective mouth. Last week's rerun of the final episode had me yawning this time around.
    And, of course, the entire premise of Enterprise means the basic Trek backstory must be altered. Until now, the good ol' NCC-1701 had been the first starship Enterprise. ...

    Nope, The NCC-1701 has been the first FEDERATION starship Enterprise.
    As a look at the current USA carrier fleet will show, the NCC-1701 is hardly the first ship with that name.
    Likewise, the Enterprise depicted in the new series is simply another starship with that name... but predating the Federation.

    I can't help adding a "yeah-but" here.
    STTMP clearly showed a visual tribute to all the vessels named Enterprise throughout history, beginning with the old clipper ship rigged with full sails and then progressing through other iterations such as the aircraft carrier Enterprise, the space shuttle Enterprise, an early ring-like space ship, and finally the NCC-1701 as depicted in the original series. Captain Archer's ship, of course, is not there.
    If continuity is to be maintained at all, I would imagine that the final episode of this new series would explain this ship's absence in history as the product of a temporal accident. That, at least, could clean up this problem as well as conclude the series.
    Until then, let's enjoy the new show.

    And, of course, Jason, there's the entire issue of the Klingon "look"--alluded to in the DS9 episode "Trials and Tribble-lations."
    Last night's promos on UPN looked kinda interesting. Let us hope. ...
