One fan is determined to bring back Star Trek: Enterprise
Matthew Lang was barely one year old when Star Trek: Enterprise was canceled in 2005, but thanks to streaming networks, the now 17-year-old has not only discovered the series, he’s trying to get it rebooted. Of course, this isn’t the first time that fans have made an effort to bring the series back with many claiming a proper ending is deserved after the horrific finale “These Are the Voyages…” which is despised by actors, fans, and producers combined. And Lang is one of those fans.
Having recently started a petition for Paramount Plus to continue the series with a fifth season, Lang is shooting for 500 signatures as a start. And if he (and the millions of other fans who have wanted this forever) are successful, Lang doesn’t want the series to pick up seventeen years past its end date. Instead, the teen believes the cast could return in their previous roles and pick up right where they left off as it’s nothing that “a little editing and hair dye couldn’t fix.”
Where could Star Trek: Enterprise go in season five?
As for where the series would go into season five, Lang has plans for that, too.
"“Most [fans] think the same thing as me, bringing it back for Seasons 5 to 7 to fill in the 2155 to 2161 gaps, whereas others believe that a new series following the Columbia NX-02 or Archer after his time on Enterprise should be done.”"
Plans were already underway for season five of the series when it was canceled, and those storylines haven’t been utilized so it’s not an entirely out of the park idea. Lang even brings up the subject of whether the cast would return or not. Rumors have been swirling around about this very thing, and though we don’t know if they’re true or not (that’s the problem with rumors), anything is a possibility until it’s not.
Though efforts to resurrect the series didn’t work several years ago, the availability of Enterprise on streaming channels has enabled it to find new fans. So the idea shouldn’t be counted out. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to sign a petition.
