Star Trek: Enterprise concluded its four-year run on May 13, 2005, with the controversial series capper, "These Are the Voyages..." To mark tomorrow's 13th anniversary of the occasion, StarTrek.com dug deep into our Vault and found a very rare DVD rough-cut screener that the UPN publicity department Fed Ex-ed to select journalists a few days in advance of the Star Trek swan song.

 

It's no secret that most Trek fans were disappointed in "These Are the Voyages." The series was not renewed by UPN for a fifth season, compelling the writers and production team to close out Enterprise on exceedingly short notice.

 

While the idea was to craft "a love letter" to fans following 18 consecutive years of Trek, the finale essentially turned Enterprise into a footnote within a Star Trek: The Next Generation storyline.

 

The storyline featured Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis. It also was only a single hour, unlike other Trek finales.

My thoughts on 'These Are the Voyages' was that it was terrible. I was extremely disappointed in how they turned it into a 'behind the scenes' TNG episode. I can re-watch, and enjoy the nearly the entire series, but when it comes to the finale, I skip it. I don't bother watching it at all.

There were so many better possibilities for how they could have done the finale, but this was just awful and in many ways, insulting.
