TrekToday - UPN Cancels 'Star Trek: Enterprise'

The End of An Era...this deserves a really long post. For the first time since I was 21 (nearly 18 years ago), Star Trek will no longer be on TV as an original series with new episodes. Next Generation, Deep Space 9, Voyager and now Enterprise. I've loved them all and I hate to see it come to an end. It's been a tradition for almost half of my life. Now it's over.

No real surprise since UPN, the network which ran the series, can't get their act together. Come on, put it on Fridays opposite SciFi's strongest night? Create a network of sitcoms and trash shows with Star Trek as the only standout? The poor decisions are too numerous to mention.

Here is Rick Berman's take...he's the Gene Roddenberry of our day and responsible for most of the 18 years of Trek.
