It looks like "Enterprise" is doing more than just a change of direction in the story, but the show could be seeing a much more noticeable change.
"They're changing the opening credits," a source has told SyFy Portal. "That was probably one of the most controversial things about the show that we saw over the last couple of years with the fans, and (Paramount) is going to make that part of the overhaul."

Executive Producer Rick Berman said that the show, beginning with the second season finale in a couple weeks on UPN, will take a new direction in the third season as Starfleet is battling a new alien species that is told Terrans will destroy their home world in 400 years.

The theme song, sung by opera singer Russell Watson, met controversy on different fronts when it was first released two years ago from issues ranging from a departure from the orchestral ballads of previous Star Trek series, to the fact that it provided no energy boost to the show.
The source said that Berman and Brannon Braga are trying to keep the aspects that honor the current space program, but it will be retooled a bit to help develop a quicker pace into the show.
Please note that this information has not been confirmed by Paramount, and should be treated like any other rumor should.

Looks like fan pressure along with Paramount suits finally got B&B to do some changing (not only the opening, but the show in general).

This comes at a good time. My mute button is almost worn out.

Take a look at it in CCs. The caption reads “Insipid and inappropriate theme song.”

I don't really have a problem with the theme song, but I'm all for shortening the opening since UPN has cut down the show to only like 41-42 minutes.

when the previews first came out and they played that somg from the Calling I was hoping that'd be the theme, since i had already heard at that point that it wasn't going to be instrumental only
