Star Trek: Enterprise Season Four Coming in April
CBS Home Entertainment has released a teaser for the upcoming release of the final season of Star Trek: Enterprise on Blu-ray. The set is scheduled to come out on April 29th and will include all 22 episodes of the series. It will also include new commentaries, deleted scenes, and outtakes. New featurettes include the four part "Before Her Time: Decommissioning Enterprise" documentary and "In Conversation: Writing Star Trek Enterprise" with the staff of the series. I love Trek, but frankly none of the Enterprise sets interested. At least until this one. Season four was when the series finally reached its true potentially, telling stories that everyone wanted Trek to tell from the very first episode which was to explain some of the origins the universe we all loved while still continue to "Explore strange new worlds." The series wanted to be dark when it should have just been a fun adventure in the vein of The Original Series with the occasional filling of gaps (like it did finally getting into the meat of the founding of the Federation). Not all the ideas were good nor all bad but over all the fourth was probably the funnest and closest to what Star Trek should be - fun adventure that explores the human condition through allegory. You can pre-order the season set on Amazon.
