To Go Boldly Where No One Has Gone Before

Had a talk with my roommate during the Lunner time, we talked about different things. Nice to have that, eh? However, we were talking about TV programs like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Xena and Stargate and how entertaining they were before the networks flushed these programs away.

Perlis mentioned about Star Trek: Enterprise, the tale that began right after the film, Star Trek, First Contact. She said that she learned that it will be cancelled and she wrote the email to UPN about it, here is their response:


Thank you for writing to UPN. The STAR TREK legacy has spanned nearly four decades and has spawned five television series. Ten years ago, STAR TREK: VOYAGER was instrumental in helping launch UPN.

The latest incarnation, STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE, has reached the culmination of its journey. This painstaking decision came after it was recognized that despite having many loyal fans like you, the audience for the show was declining steadily. Therefore, ENTERPRISE is set to decommission and will be given a grand send-off on Friday, May 13th at 8 PM ET/PT on UPN.

This does not mean that STAR TREK is gone forever. Paramount, the studio that produced all five television series and ten feature films, is looking forward to the next chapter of the STAR TREK saga.

We know that this information may not make you feel any better but we want you to know how much we appreciate your input and we sincerely hope that you will continue to share your thoughts with us in the future.

Viewer Services

I'm not a Trekkie fan but I enjoyed watching Enterprise than the others because it is bit realistic. Of course, I'd like to keep it going -- write a letter to the customer service and tell them to keep Star Trek: Enterprise. Told Perlis that I'll blog about it. So fans, can you imagine the TV without Star Trek? I can't. So let's do something about it. Maybe the power of blogosphere can save Star Trek!

Here is the instruction:

1. Click this UPN Website
2. Look for "Special Links" on your right column
3. 6 lines below "Special Links" reads: HAVE YOU SOMETHING TO SAY? Click it
4. Talk about Star Trek: Enterprise and save the program.
