Star Trek: Enterprise

Trivia: This was the first Star Trek spinoff after the animated series to last fewer than seven seasons. The fourth (and final) season ended in May of 2005.

Trivia: The space shuttle Enterprise appears in the title sequence of the show - this shuttle was named after the Enterprise from the original series (after a poll, and also because Star Trek was President Carter's favourite show). A case of reality imitating art and then art imitating that reality.

Trivia: The character of T'Pol was originally going to be T'Pau, the Vulcan high priestess who appears in the original series episode "Amok Time" and in the film Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. Her name was changed because per WGA rules, the scriptwriter who'd written "Amok Time" would have had to be paid a royalty for every episode.

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)

More quotes from 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.

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.
