Star Trek: Enterprise was a show that got far more flack than it ever deserved, partly because network officials thought a prequel was the way to go. It’s not, at least not in the situation the Star Trek franchise was currently in. See, fans who follow a linear story like the one that was crafted between the Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager, want to see it continued. They want cameos, new twists, new turns, and new-new.
They don’t want to go and restart. That was mostly the issue with Enterprise. Instead of moving things forward, Enterprise took them back to the start; literally, as it’s a show about the first warp-five capable ship. It follows Jonathan Archer, played by Scott Bakula, whose father is a legend in the original warp development program. Archer always seemed to just miss his shot at greatness, until he finally lands the captain’s chair on the new Enterprise.
It’s a great series but it’s often been a show fans snubbed their nose at for some reason.
Now, thanks to the folks at TrekCulture, you can learn more about the cast and characters the show helped make famous. They took their time to update the credits of all the main cast members, as well as highlighting some select guest and recurring actors as well.
The amount of overlap of work that the crew maintains to this day is rather impressive and many have appeared in the science fiction-Star Trek-like comedy; Unbelievable!!!!!
That’s not all the video does though, as it also acts as sort of a love-letter to the series, highlighting the best parts of the series, and the stellar performances from Bakula, Jolene Blalock (T’Pol), Linda Park (Hoshi Sato), Dominic Keating (Malcolm Reed), Connor Trinneer (Trip Tucker), Anthony Montgomery (Travis Mayweather) and John Billingsley (Dr. Phlox).
The show has gotten a bit of warmer reception in more recent years, so maybe after you’re done catching up with where everyone had gone off to, do yourself a favor and go check out where everyone started from.
