Star Trek: Enterprise

Zero Hour - S3-E24

Character mistake: Previous episodes have established this story arc to be occurring in the year 2154. Yet here, when T'Pol records her log, she cites the date as 2152. (00:32:00)

The Breach - S2-E21

Other mistake: As Archer walks into the sickbay, while the camera pans, you can see a bottle of Crystal Geyser water. I noticed the bottle right away but had to pause it to see the brand. (00:39:00 - 00:40:00)

Ambigu0us0ne

Minefield - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Reed instructs Archer how to disarm the second arming mechanism of the mine, he tells him to turn the first component clockwise, but then Archer is shown turning it counter-clockwise. Then Reed tells him to turn the rest of the components counter-clockwise, but afterwards he must reverse the last component to keep the mine from rearming, which means turning it clockwise. But when Archer reverses the last component, he turns it counter-clockwise.

Affliction (1) - S4-E15

Other mistake: When Captain Hernandez gives an order to her helmsman, she says "lieutenant". But the helmsman has only one pip on her uniform, she's an ensign, not a lieutenant.

Carbon Creek - S2-E2

Factual error: Part of this episode takes place in the 50s, during a previously-unknown incident of Vulcans crash landing on earth. Modern twenty and fifty dollar bills are visible in the tip jar.

Rogue Planet - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Hoshi returns to the ship, Archer says in his log that Trip and Malcolm are taking her back to Enterprise. Trip wasn't on the planet: the landing party was Archer, T'Pol, Hoshi, and Malcolm. (00:11:20)

Carpenter Street - S3-E11

Factual error: At the very end of the episode after Loomis is arrested, the camera pans away from the Detroit street, but mountains can be seen in the background on the horizon. There aren't any mountains or even large hills near Detroit.

Suggested correction: When the camera is focused on Reed there is plenty of time for Trip to pour himself more and later you can see Trip with bottle in his hand putting the lid on.

Anomaly - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: In the episode, "Anomaly," at the beginning, when Phlox is looking at his animal cages, you can see a string or wire attached to one of them, presumably the means by which the cages are shaking.

Oasis - S1-E20

Plot hole: In 'Oasis,' several times in the episode, specifically when they took Trip captive, the holograms appeared out of nowhere brandishing weapons. The holograms can walk through walls, which we saw, but the guns were real. We saw them hit the deck when Liana deactivated the holograms. So how did they appear with the guns? (00:34:00)

Fusion - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: In the scene in T'Pol's quarters, after she and Tolaris have mind melded and she asked him to leave, he walks out, and the door starts to close before the shot changes to T'Pol. But when the shot changes, the light from the door on T'Pol shows the door still opening, and then closing. (00:33:40)

Regeneration - S2-E23

Other mistake: Two Borg are discovered North of the Arctic Circle. One is covered in ice, the other encased in ice. Carbon dating shows the wreckage to be over 100 years old (to tie it in with Star Trek:First Contact). The Borg are inactive and unable to repair themselves until they are "defrosted". The temperature above the Arctic Circle doesn't usually drop below -100°F. The Borg have been shown to work very well in the vacuum of space which is 3-4K (roughly -454°F). If they can survive that, even being frozen in a solid block of ice would not slow them down. The nanites have to be in their "blood" and operate at the cellular level. That cannot be damaged by re-entry and the crash. [This is one of those entries that keeps being corrected and recorrected - I'll leave it up to people to make up their own minds.]

Stratagem - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: While Archer and the crew discuss the capabilities of The Xindi vortex technology and whether or not to go to Azati Prime, Archer asks Trip to see the data that Trip has collected from the Degra's ship. The camera pans to the display screen, on which a Mac mouse pointer is visible. It is positioned on the line going downward from the red giant.

Fallen Hero - S1-E23

Other mistake: As Archer, T'Pol and the ambassador are having dinner, the Ambassador inquires about who previously occupied the cabin (that she was to be staying in). T'Pol assumes this is regarding concerns about human "odor", but the ambassador says, "Actually I was hoping to meet the crew member in order to thank her for allowing me to disrupt her routine." However, the ambassador has no way of knowing what gender the crew member is, as no mention of this person has been made. Although the crew member was, in fact, Hoshi (who is female), the ambassador would not have known this, and had no reason to refer to the crew member as "her". (00:08:34)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: There are any number of ways the ambassador could know. Considering the ambassador knew it was a crewmember's quarters, it's likely that when she came on board, the pronoun "she" was used in reference to the prior occupant. Or perhaps an item of clothing was left in a drawer.

Additionally, in our culture if a gender is unknown a male pronoun is frequently used, but her culture may use a feminine pronoun as the default.

Horizon - S2-E20

Factual error: When Capt. Archer joins Travis in a weightless environment he refers to in an earlier episode as the ship's "sweet spot", Travis discusses the bad news he received from The Horizon, his parents' cargo ship, with Capt. Archer, and you see tears rolling down (and off) Travis's face. In a weightless environment the tears would not react in this way. (00:06:20 - 00:07:40)

Hatchery - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: At 38:20, T'Pol (as acting captain) says that they have resumed their course to Azati Prime; however, from 39-42 minutes, Captain Archer and Trip discuss the "current" status - that they are still orbiting the planet and then the Captain orders Trip to tell Travis to set a course for Azati Prime at maximum warp. (00:38:20)

Captain Archer: I believe someone once defined a compromise as a solution that neither side is happy with.
Shran: In that case, these talks have been extremely successful.

Regeneration - S2-E23

Trivia: A film reference to Star Trek: First Contact: Archer says something about a group of cybernetic creatures (The Borg), that tried to stop Cochrane from launching his mission into space that was stopped by a group of humanoids, that were also from the future (USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E).

More trivia for Star Trek: Enterprise

Answer: While ratings did drop, there was a lot going on to cause the rating drops and cancellation. First, "Enterprise" was on UPN, which was dissolved a year after the show was cancelled. At the time of cancellation, it was UPN's highest rated drama. Because they were on at night, they were often preempted by local UPN broadcast of baseball games. And it wasn't even aired in every market. They also lost a major corporate backer early and it was difficult for them to over come that loss. Plus, for season 4, they switched to a Friday night line up, so they were competing against Fox shows, like "The Simpsons" whereas on Wednesdays they didn't have much competition.

Answer: The same reason any show gets canceled, low ratings.

wizard_of_gore

Not all shows get cancelled because of low ratings. Some get cancelled because they're too expensive to make.

Don't know why it had low ratings. IMO it was close to the best of Star Trek franchise.
