Another one bites the dust…

A few days ago it was announced that UPN will be cancelling Star Trek Enterprise at the end of the current season.

Fan groups are trying to rally support to keep it going, see this link for details.

Unfortunately I fear they are doomed to fail.

It saddens me to see that quality Sci-Fi shows like Enterprise fail to achieve the required ratings to remain viable when a never ending stream of crap shows flood the airwaves every day.

It seems to me that people as a whole are getting dumber and less sophisticated in their entertainment tastes, what can those of us who like to stretch our minds a little and dream of possibilities yet to come do?

Perhaps we should give up, have a lobotomy and join the unwashed masses on the couch watching Survivor, Big Brother, Football or some other mindless crap.

At least that way I could forget about Linux and Mac OSX and just live with windows like the other 90% of the computer users in the world.

For the moment I can take heart that we still have Stargate SG-1 & Atlantis ( for at least one more season each ) and keep my fingers crossed that they make another series of Battlestar Galactica……

    Yes, it’s a shame about the cancellation. My favourite SF series’ generally have short lives (Space 1999 – two seasons, UFO – one season, ST:TOS: – three seasons, Blake’s Seven – three seasons, BG – God knows, but I can bet 2-3 max). I suppose we should be thankful that these shows ever get scripted, financed, produced and released – that in itself is a minor miracle.

    Still, I’m really looking forward to the upcoming 2-part episode with the USS Defiant! That should be some classic Star Trek (pun intended).
