It Was Just a Holodeck Program!

The Star Trek series Enterprise ran for four seasons in the early 2000s. It was a prequel series, set in a time period before Captain Kirk and the original series. But it didn’t really look the part. And it had numerous plot holes. Now we have a fan theory that explains all that.

Of course, even this theory has its problems. A YouTube commenter dismissed it, pointing out that if the show were a Will Riker holodeck fantasy, it would have had a lot more women in it. -via Geeks Are Sexy

I cannot understand all the hate for Enterprise. Far from being riddled with plot holes, it solved plot holes made by previous Star Trek series, such as the Klingon human-like bodies from TOS.

Nasty Vulcan characters? The series clearly depicted a social revolution on Vulcan that included a direct analogy of the gay rights movement in the 20th and 21st Century West. It was very clear that the social direction of Vulcan was moving toward what appeared in TOS. There's no inconsistency at all. The Enterprise writers told the backstory of Vulcan to viewers in the 2000s in a way that fit neatly into its predecessor made in the 1960s.

Yes, the last episode was a holodeck episode from TNG. A fan theory that the entire series was a holonovel is feasible. But dismissing the entire series as poorly-written . . . well, Trekkies are missing out on some great stories if they don't watch Enterprise, particularly in the final 2 seasons.

I loved Enterprise, as well. I missed some of the episodes so I really want to go back and watch the entire series again.

I think this should be re-titled to I've got an unwarranted conspiracy theory. Enterprise had its poorly written stories - just as TOS and TNG - but overall it was great. John said it best above.

I've never seen a poorly written holodeck program, but there are more than a couple crappy holodeck stories. I've also never seen a holodeck program/story that didn't include one or more Enterprise crew members.
