The Enterprise finale

I find myself wishing the show was canceled now. This would have been a nice high to end on. The first 55 minutes of Zero Hour were fantastic, as good as Trek gets. I was beyond the edge of my seat, at times I was pacing the floor. Had Enterprise called it quits tonight, it ends as good as it could be. For the first 55 minutes, everything works on this episode.

And then it happens. The show proves exactly why it's never going to be considered anything but mediocre Trek. If you haven't seen the ending.. well, you need too.

Oh, and its good they used time travel. That hasn't been seen in almost 2 episodes.

Bah, if it had ended with the captain escaping and the ship coming home it would have been lame. Like Voyager lame.

I think the ending was a punch in the stomach and have my suspicions about what's happening...particularly since the alien guy appeared to be a Reman from Star Trek Nemesis.

In the old TOS episode, City on the Edge of Forever, there was the idea that if certain things didn't occur that the Nazi's would win World War II.

I'm not sure we're seeing time travel here, as much as we're seeing the result of a previous timeline incursion.

If we're looking at time travel, then it means that everything in the expanse was thrown back with the detonation of the spheres because we clearly see the Aquatics drop off Enterprise and depart.

I've seen just about every Trek and for the first two seasons Enterprise was horrible but this story arc seems genuinely intriguing and if they write the end of the cliffhanger well, it might surprise us all.

Of course, they could also butcher it...
