Star Trek: Enterprise

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)

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.

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)

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.

Horizon - S2-E20

Trivia: When Travis is in his old room talking with Nora about Enterprise, look on the bookshelf behind Travis. There's a large white book about Chicago gangs of the 1920's. In the original series episode "A Piece of the Action" it is determined that 100 years ago the ship Horizon accidentally left a book about Chicago gangs which influenced the entire culture to mimic the mobster lifestyle.

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.
