Star Trek: Enterprise cancelled. A world mourns. Or maybe not. In a sense it's bad, because it was promised as being something new, Das Boot in space, lower tech, cramped conditions, character driven. In a more major sense it's very, very good, because it never delivered on any of it's promises, in the three years I've watched three main bridge characters never threatened to be interesting at any point and as for the other three, Archer, Tucker and T'Pol, well they all looked like they were acting a certain way and then the wind changed and they were stuck like it. When you're doing lo-tech stories you need three dimensional characters, Enterprise seemed to decide it didn't need them either. It won't be missed.
