Hailing Frequencies Closed

Just when it was finally getting good, Star Trek: Enterprise will go where no Trek series has ever gone before—into early retirement.

UPN announced today that, after four seasons, Star Trek: Enterprise, the network's embattled flagship, will be cancelled.

Star Trek has been an important part of UPN's history, and Enterprise has carried on the tradition of its predecessors with great distinction,” said Dawn Ostroff, President, Entertainment, UPN.

David Stapf, President of Paramount Network Television, said, “The creators, stars and crew of Star Trek: Enterprise ambitiously and proudly upheld the fine traditions of the Star Trek franchise. We are grateful for their contributions to the legacy of Trek and commend them on completing nearly 100 exciting, dramatic and visually stunning episodes. All of us at Paramount warmly bid goodbye to Enterprise.”

If UPN has another Star Trek series waiting in the wings, mums the word. When Enterprise’s final episode airs on Friday, May 13th, it will be the first time in nearly 20 years that a first-run Star Trek series will not be showing on TV.

In the words of Sam watching the Elves leave Middle Earth,
"I don't know why, but it makes me sad."

No, seriously, it does.
