    What do you think of Season 3 of Star Trek Enterprise? I personally think it's BRILLIANT! My Dad hates the new music for the intro. I think it's cool. The way Archer's going, he'll have no crew members left with what happened in the last episode. So is that insect and aquatic thing other species of Xindi? I think that makes a complete set. Humanoid, Reptile, Primative, Insect and Aqautic. Yup, fits if you ask me. I hope that Archer gets Malcolm to upgrade the pitiful excuses for Phaze Pistols so much that they'll be able to stand a chance against the Xindi. I mean... Did you see their weapons!? About 10 crew members were killed that episode!

    EDIT: Just checked the official site and it seems that the primitive form of Xindi is called Xindi-Sloth. So if you talk about Xindi, say the species of it.

    Xindi-Reptile
    Xindi-Human
    Xindi-Insect
    Xindi-Aguatic
    Xindi-Sloth

    I dunno how it's lasted so long. All I know is that Enterprise is getting better. But I am a fan.

    To be honest kiddo I haven't watched it since the pilot from the first series. I can never remember the channel or the time it was on.

    If it was on at midnight on sky one like Voyager used to be i'd watch it all the time. I'm always busy at 6pm or 7pm with my hectic student lifestyle :rolleyes:

    i've always enjoyed my weekly slice of life aboard a starship, wether much goes on or not. But they definelty seem to have upped the tempo this season - and not just the music (though i actually prefered the older music). So i'm very happy with this season so far (a fan ;)

    I think this season is better as well, but the intro song is just plain bad.

    I have watched all episodes so far in the UK, and I don't know why people don't like it. Some are better than others , but I look forward to each one.
    As far as getting better, it probably is in my opinion.(fan)

    Yep, I know it gets a lot darker. Yeah, last season's intro music is better. Enterprise is on Sky 1 at 8:00pm on Mondays. It's also on Sky 1 Mix at the same time on Tuesdays. I've looked at the official site and all I can say is that it gets VERY better!

    Hi,

    Yeah I really enjoy Enterprise. I'm glad the the Star Trek franchise is still going for so long. Generations was superb. DS9 was not for me. Enterprise is getting better with the current storylines.

    Just think if there was no star trek what so ever!, its filled the void left by dr who all those years ago, in terms of a sci-fi show, that i want to see every week.


    How is Enterprise doing in US, is it going strong, or will it be replaced?.

    Heard a rumour recently (can't recall where) that it's not doing well in the US and may be canned before the end of the current run (season 3). :( That'd be a shame - it's not the greatest show on earth, but it's still fun to watch.

    Cheers, Carl.

    Yeah my friend heard that rumour but it's not true. DS9 did not appeal to me either. Voyager and TNG did though.

    I have watched a lot of the US season 3 eps now (love that 1mb internet baby) and it's getting better and better. T'Pol looks hotter and hotter now she's ditched her grey catsuit, and Archer definitely seems to be colder; more hell bent on his mission, a la Picard in First Contact.

    Sh*te music though - up tempo version or not it just sucks!

    Some very interesting eps coming up (I've seen up to S3ep12) - stick with it!

    PS
    As I posted elsewhere our US cousins get it in HD as well! D'oh!

    Although the original theme song wasn't like by many, it really grew on me.

    Mondays ep was the first time I had caught the start of the new series and I was gobsmacked. Is it just me or does anyone else find this new 'revamped' theme tune awful. It just doesn't sound like a star trek theme tune. I hate it. Its like a theme tune to some 70s light hearted family show!!

    Enterprise is getting better though.

    I like it when the women undress and rub vaseline on each other.

    Thats a really good bit.

    Re the theme tune...they did the same thing part way through DS9...added some more deep bass to the music which actually improved it. In this case though, it's pretty much ruined it.

    Hmmm, it's difficult to say they "ruined" it when it was such crap to begin with!

    ...Nah the song has improved no end now :)

    The series does seem more watchable as it progresses.

    The new theme tune IMO is crap, sounds like a jolly country and western song

    I preferred the old Theme music but like the darker tone the show is heading into.

    Who gives a toss what the theme tune sounds like, let's just have more scenes of T'Pol getting/giving the old Vulcan massage.

    And more episodes in the decontamination room. You'd think that someone in that century would have invented a procedure where you didn't have to strip yer kit off.

    But so far I think this series is a belter.

    The series is brill. We see a darker side of Archer. Mind you, you'd be angry if you had half of your ship's suppiles stolen by Space Pirates and a Xindi boarding party kill 10 of your 80 man crew with the most advanced weapons you've ever seen, wouldn't you? I'd be REALLY ticked off. Plus Archer threatened to kill that Pirate by putting him in the airlock and de-pressurizing it.

    cube

    might be an idea to edit your post and hide that info under a 'spoiler'. Luckily ive watched this episode, but there are those that only get to see Enterprise on CH4, and for them i would definetly class this as a spoiler.

    I think this series is getting better, I still prefer Picard above any other captain. I heard a rumour that they were thinking of making a series based in the 29 century but on a time ship not a starship.

    For me the series go like this;

    1. Next Generation
    2. Voyager
    3. Enterprise
    4. DS9
    5. Original 'Kirk' Series

    I think Enterprise was going down the road on becoming another Voyager but so far this new season has started to pull things around & has altered the style of the show enough give the show it's own character.

    I was told, before the season started, that things didn't really get going until about eight ep's in. If that is the case, episode eight onwards are gonna be pretty sweet.

    It always takes a bit of time for the people to settle into character. If you watch the early Next Generation, their acting is so wooden it's scary. It got much better after a couple of seasons.
    DS9 only got really good, when they started playing with the Defiant. Before then, it seemed most episodes had lots of buildup then suddenly everything was ok at the end. When they get brave enough to do a long story line in the background of shorter ones, the series gets much better.
    Sorting the series for me, it's like this:
    1. TNG
    2. DS9 with Defiant
    3. Enterprise
    4=. Voyager
    4=. Original
    6. DS9 without Defiant

    I always enjoy the tie ins. A lot of the early references in Enterprise, only make real sense if you've seen the other series.
    Wonder if they'll do a tribble episode?

    I didn’t like the theme tune to begin with now but like it less now. Always seem to be the case when they muck about with the theme tunes.

    The third series does seem to have got of to a better start and having a longer story ark.

    I do not Scott Bakula exudes the same authority as the other captains.

    Anyone spot John Billingsley (Dr Phlox) on Angel last week.
