The fourth season of Star Trek: Enterprise concludes the Temporal Cold War story arc that had been a staple of the series since "Broken Bow". The remaining episodes of season four refocus Enterprise on the series' original prequel concept by exploring cultural shifts on Vulcan; establishing the beginnings of conflict between Earth and the Romulans; explaining the difference in appearance between the Klingons of Star Trek: The Original Series and those of Star Trek: The Next Generation; giving an insight into the mirror universe prior to any crossover with the prime universe; and exploring the obstacles Humanity must overcome before allying with alien species.

Background information[]

  • Season 4 saw the series move to Fridays at 8pm EST, and Manny Coto stepped up to become show runner and Executive Producer. Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens were brought on as story editors. After the narrow escape from cancellation at the end of season 3, and despite continued fan campaigns, the series was officially cancelled on 2 February 2005.
  • For the fourth season, UPN reduced the allowed budget from $1.7 million to $800,000 per episode. One of the most significant results of the budget cut was the series now being shot on digital instead of film.
  • Coto's most important change in format and storytelling was the introduction of the "mini-arcs", storylines spanning two or three episodes usually. This was not only a creative decision, but also a way to deal with the reduced budget, as now the filmmakers were able to use the same sets, costumes, and guest stars for multiple episodes. (The Fifty-Year Mission: The Next 25 Years)
  • Characters which 'cross over' from other incarnations of Star Trek: T'Pau and Surak ("Awakening"), Phillip Green ("Demons"), and William T. Riker and Deanna Troi ("These Are the Voyages..."). Data, Jean-Luc Picard, and James T. Kirk were also featured in "These Are the Voyages..." in voice-over.
  • John Billingsley felt that this season was the strongest overall of the show's run, and credited the new format for this success. "I think the idea of having the multi-episode arcs was the best way of having your cake and eating it too, getting some kind of a sustained narrative drive which you can't do in any standalone episodes, and not necessarily tying up a whole season the way we did in season three when we were chasing the Xindi." On the cancellation at the end of the season, Billingsley remarked, "I think if anything what I would love fans to come away with is a sense of the show was getting better and while it was disappointing we didn't [get] a full seven year run we [were] beginning, I think, to establish ourselves as a strong series in our own right." [1]
  • Not everyone was thrilled with the fourth season, former staff writer and co-executive producer Chris Black (who left Enterprise after season three) belongs to a minority who consider it a step back. "A lot of people were happy. But to me, as fun as it is to see Scott wearing a velour tunic or Jolene in a minidress, that's not what Enterprise was supposed to be. In a way, we gave up trying to do something different. The premise and promise of the show was to take Star Trek to the next level. Let's do something people haven't seen before and get them excited about that. We did three seasons of that and it didn't work so, f..k it, we'll give them the old Star Trek. Give them what they want. Give them the Mirror universe. Whatever. To me, it felt like giving up." (The Fifty-Year Mission: The Next 25 Years)
