Star Trek: Enterprise

The Breach - S2-E21

Corrected entry: How in the heck someone like in Doctor Phlox's time frame knew anything about tribbles in the first place. It was 100 years before McCoy and Cerino Jones and 200 years before Worf and co. Guess Doctor Phlox can leave a note to Doctor McCoy about the tribble's life cycle and its predators.

Correction: Dr. Phlox is an xeno-biologist from another world - his whole life's work is to study all life on other planets. He has many creatures living in the Sick Bay that I'm sure Dr. McCoy has never heard of. Dr. McCoy is a medical doctor who knows how to treat humans (and a few aliens), not a biologist - there are probably lots of Earth creatures Dr. McCoy couldn't tell you the life cycle of. No one could possibly know the life cycles of all creatures on thousands of planets.

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.

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.

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.
