Sci-Fi 440

jangobongo writes "SciFiWire.com reports that fans of Star Trek Enterprise have succeeded in placing a full-page ad in the LA Times. The ad will urge someone to pick up the show for a fifth season. According to the official fan site, a Star Trek Enterprise fan working for the LA Times has arranged a special deal for a discounted ad. Donations collected to date have covered the cost of the ad which will be located in the "A" section of the paper on Feb. 21."

"Let it die already!"

I wouldn't consider myself a fan at the level of doing anything to save the series, but ...really; I'm sick of seeing all the "Let it die!" comments. On the other hand I'm sure all those who dislike Enterprise are tired of the "Save Enterprise!" campaigns--in which case I wish they'd just ignore them rather than complain about them.

Anyway, to the point...is it worth saving? Yes, I think so. I think I can safely say without a doubt that Season 4 gets better as each episode passes (Minus the time-traveling space nazi aliens)

From the preview of upcoming episodes it seems they're finally going to mix things up and add some actual drama to the show rather than psuedo-drama that seems almost forced from Bakula.

This season has been good in comparison to the previous ones agreed, but Enterprise suffers from annoying character syndrome: tucker, t'pals hair, hoshi, travis, daniels, the theme song ... also have you noticed the special effects have taken a turn for the worse this season?

Re:Come on (2, Interesting)

redcone (838393) | more than 9 years ago | (#11655450)

I agree. Let it die. I was a Star Trek fan for many years, but Voyager, DS9, and now Enterprise conspired to suck the life out of a great idea. Enterprise could have been a great series had they just went with the idea of chronicling the early days of space exploration and forgot all the time travellers from the future trying to destroy the federation before it even began.

Re:Come on (1, Flamebait)

oneiron (716313) | more than 9 years ago | (#11655484)

Filth like Voyager and Enterprise shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath as DS9. DS9 was an great series... It got off to a slow start, but later episodes after Warf and O'Brien joined the cast were great...

Re:Come on (1)

DaHat (247651) | more than 9 years ago | (#11655567)

I could be wrong (almost zero chance of it), but O'Brien (played by Colm Meaney) was part of the series from the first episode of DS9.

I mean if countless vulcan-nerds can coordinate all this passion for a newspaper ad for a t.v. show that was great maybe in 1970, why can't they muster up that same passion for a hair-comb or some soap? Seriously, you must brush and floss every day. Also, pop those zits get some clearasil.

Thing is, everyone is different ("no two people are not on fire" - Strong Bad). IMO, DS9 was filth. Yes, O'Brien was great (he was in DS9 from the beginning, BTW... check the cast listing of the first episode) and Worf, too. The rest, meh. It got worse, and by the end it really stank.

Voyager was great, and Enterprise has finally found good writers. TNG was meh, and TOS was fucking stupid.

I know it's common on Slashdot to think Star Trek should die. Let me tell let you in on a little secret: You don't have to watch it. Seriously. I like it, I want to watch it. How does it harm you if it's on?

For example, I don't care that Stargate plays. Personally, I think I could create a better show based off of the contents of my toilet. Do I constantly complain about it and say that Stargate should die? No. Live and let live.

I tried to watch Battlestar Galactica.. I set my MythTV box to tape it and I got about 5 or 6 hours of them during the day on Friday on Sci-Fi. I didn't even think Lorne Greene was still alive for Christ's sake.. I can't believe they dragged him out of retirement for this shithole of a show. And Dirk Benedict!? WTF has he done since the A-Team? All in all, BSG sucked ass. Enterprise was much better IMHO. BSG had a very 1970's feel to it that just seemed cheesy. Class A crap. You people are all on crack if you think BSG is any good. Long live Star Trek!!!!

The difference between Enterprise and other shows (2, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#11655419)

That have had similar campaigns is that the vast majority of the audience believed in the people behind them. Whether it was Angel, or Farscape, or even the original Star Trek, people respected the person(s) in charge of making the show happen, and they were upset with how a studio/channel treated them unfairly.

This is different, though. No one has been more vocal about the problems with B&B than the fans. Why support them? Why raise money for them to make another season? Let them take the fall on this one even if it means an end to Star Trek right now. It'd be better to start a campaign to raise money on the condition they were gone from the Star Trek helm.

Turn-X Alphonse (789240) | more than 9 years ago | (#11655422)

This needs to not become a habit. If loads of people get full page adverts in magazines for every little fanbase then it will become meaningless.

Enterprise has been a rather poor series from the start. It didn't follow the Star Trek theme at all, it didn't feel like Star Trek. It seemed more of a parody which could of been named "Hicks in space".

I'm not a HUGE Trekkie, but I'll happily watch anything EXCEPT Enterprise. Where as I can't even stand to watch a full episode of the "new" series. I understand fans want to keep it around, but if it dies (and no offence to anyone but lets hope it does), we might get a real series. No more "Oh no we met a new race who think we're all hicks, lets make friends with them and save the universe!" and alot more "Well.. lets go look at that thing no one understands and go "WTF" when everything goes wrong or someone is taken over by an alien/warp entity thing.

Hell as far as I know they don't even have a Holo-deck, surely that cuts the series length in half without the "OMG SAFEY HAS BEEN REMOVED" episodes.

They managed to meet an alien race with holodeck technology (damn you Berman), and one of the hicks got pregnant in it.
Boy was he surprised.

I don't even consider Enterprise to be Trek.

As far as I'm concerned, continuity ended in Generations: Picard never made it out of the Nexus and all the lame series and movies since have been a nightmare he's having in there.

Admittedly recent episodes are not as bad as the first season, which was little more than a container for P.C./lefty proselytization, but that still doesn't make it a good show.

Just because something is based on Star Trek, doesn't mean it deserves a stay of execution.

How can Star Trek Succeed? (1, Insightful)

reporter (666905) | more than 9 years ago | (#11655476)

I have been a fan of Star Trek - The Original Series (ST-TOS) and Star Wars (IV, V, & VI) for ages. The main strength of ST-TOS is that it dealt directly with the social issues of the day. Remember that the 1960s were a turbulent time in America.

I like Star Wars because it has excellent acting and dealt with good versus evil. Star Wars is essentially a medieval tale (of knights and a princess) shrouded in sci-fi props: lasers, spaceships, etc.

The problem with Enterprise is the bad acting. and bad casting. Captain Archer needs to be replaced. We need a swashbuckler like Harrison Ford to be captain. Also, the "sexy role" should be assigned to the communications officer. Being sexy is more than being endowed with breasts; being sexy requires emotion, which is absent from the Vulcan, T'Pol.

We also need a new set of writers. We need to go back to the roots of ST-TOS. Deal with the social issues head on. Remember the old episode with the 2 aliens, each being half white and half black. At the end of the show, you realize that they hate each other because they are white on different sides. Wow. That was an excellent metaphore for race relations.

Enterprise should take homosexuality or Tibet and frame those issues in a big metaphor and give the punch line at the end.

If this ad in the "LA Times" succeeds, I hope that they revamp Enterprise in the way that I suggested. Gene Roddenbery had a great idea when he started ST-TOS. I just hope that it does not end in this horrible way: Enterprise and ST-Voyager.

By the way, another thing that I really like about ST-TOS and Star Wars is the following. Life is full of evil people. Yet, the 2 sci-fi stories say that sometimes, just sometimes, the good people win. I like that idea.

And that is why we have to be really careful about Trek. I do NOT want it to deteriorate into a we-are-good-because-we-are-good story. ST is about people with ideals. SW is more about, well, people.

In addition to the acting, what I couldn't find in Enterprise were those ideals. Sure, Archer talks about them sometimes, but I simply don't get that impression. Even Voyager could give me some of that. In fact, I think parts of DS9 got too much of "epic tale of good against evil" sometimes, while Voyager at its worst just got boring. I think I, for one, can prefer boring.

While the first two seasons were a little lackluster at best the third season and now the forth season are quite good. They're finally starting to really get into the reasons why I wanted to watch this show in the first place: less of the temporal cold war crap and more of the war with the Romulans and the foundation of the Federation stuff. This has made the forth season of the show much more interesting and enjoyable than previous seasons. I can still understand why they are cancelling the series (due to low ratings). But it's a shame that we can so much reality show crap on TV now and so few decent story driven series. At least Enterprise will go out on a high note but I wish they'd given it more of a chance.

I'm not some tree hugging freak, but I think there are FAR more useful and constructive places the time, money and energy being pissed away on trying to save a mediocre TV series can be spent.

Face it: it's network television. Its fundamental purpose is to keep your attention between commercials. It wasn't doing a very good job of that, so they canned it. It has nothing to do with art. It has everything to do with commerce.

If they could show nothing but TV commercials and keep an audience that way, they would. But they can't - people get bored - so they put dollops of infantile fantasy, emotional pornography, and corporate disinformation masquerading as news to simply keep your attention between the commercials.

The death of Enterprise is just the latest example of this process.

Never much cared for Enterprise, but if anyone wants to bring back the Andy Griffith Show for another season, I'd surely watch that...

I have a question (non-troll) (1)

I was not aware that people truly read Newspapers anymore. The newspapers in my town (Augusta) completely suck and aren't worth the 12$ they're trying to sell it for. My parents stopped buying their paper up in Chicago for the same reason.

With the Internet becoming a place where news are instant and commentary is a little deeper, why are Newspapers still around? How are they remaining profitable?

The show doesn't get ratings. (1)

If enough sci-fi fans thought it was good enough then it would get ratings.

An idea to spice up the show would be new uniforms . Have ALL the women including the hot vulcan in tight miniskirts just like in the original series. Remember the Vulcan in the StarTrek movie ? Hell make them even smaller skirts. Why not add some eroticism instead of staying stale and puritan.

I WOULD DEFINITELY WATCH THEN.

One way to keep it from coming back... (1)

I can see it now..

All the producers have to do is tragically kill off the entire crew.

Let see you revive the series then! HA! :)
