Star Trek: Enterprise ended way too soon for most fans.
It’s no surprise that most Star Trek: Enterprise fans wanted more than just four seasons of the series. In fact, many of us would love to see the show return even if just for a wrap-up movie that didn’t involve holodecks or characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation. So I’m sure the three actors, Connor Trinneer, Anthony Montgomery, and Dominic Keating) who appeared at Star Trek: Mission Chicago were expecting questions and comments about the return of Enterprise.
Anthony Montgomery who played Ensign Travis Mayweather on the series, told the audience [via Trekmovie] that all of the actors had signed for seven years so they all walked in expecting the show to run for that long. With Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine all having run that long, it was reasonable to expect the same from Enterprise. The cancellation was disappointing to the fans who feel like the series didn’t get a proper send-off.
Star Trek: Enterprise most likely won’t ever return.
As difficult as it is for fans to learn this, the only thing that has been rebooted in Star Trek, unless you count Star Trek: The Original Series’ return as The Animated Series, are the movies, and they went in a totally different direction from the originals. Enterprise probably isn’t even on the radar for a considered reboot. Montgomery made it rather clear to a fan who was enthusiastically suggesting that the actors could still come back for more seasons of the series.
"“We have really stepped into our own by season four. So if we’d gone five, six and seven, man, I don’t know what it would have been, but we would have crushed it! I love that guy [points to fan] saying “you guys could still do it.” No, no, that that spaceship has sailed.”"
As disappointing as this is, Montgomery, Trinneer, and Keating would know more about whether the series was under consideration for a reboot than we would. Montgomery’s comment leaves little room for doubt. So unless current Star Trek producers get a sudden desire to do the right thing by Enterprise fans, we’ve seen the last of the series…at least the one with these actors and characters.
