Since Enterprise is getting a complement of military personel on this new mission - to whom we were never introduced in this season ender - will we have new cast members next year?
Sounded that way to me too... Some permanent new crew we haven't met yet.

Red Shirts. The Enterprise may actually record its first crew member death next season.

I guess they didn't want to cast new crew members for only a single episode, hold them over the "summer" and then start up again. But, yes, I believe we should be getting several new cast members next season.

Enterprise 90210 here we come.

Overnights are in: 4.4/7, which are the highest ratings since February, but still very low.

I think UPN needs to seriously consider a bigtime summer ad campaign to bring in new viewers for next season.

Maybe they need to bring in an established sci-fi star with experience in just this type of scenario to play the military leader?

Since they said they were going to be regulars, they probably wanted a lot of times to cast them, not just the couple weeks they probably had for the season finale.

I used to keep track of this during Voyager because they had no access to replacements. Funny thing was, crew members stopped dying somewhere around season 4 or 5.

I think it's quite possible you'll see some red shirts and some suggetions.. like 'Red Alert' and a Brig.

And if the Suleban can surround the ship, beam on board, capture whoever they like, and take off.. What they heck is the point behind extra security? Doesn't seem like it would matter much.

Good episode overall. A few gripes. I wish they had ended the season on a cliffhanger, but oh well. Also, we didn't get a good look at the alien, but could it be possible it's a race that we've seen before in another show? Maybe Voyager or ST:TNG. That would make it interesting. As for the people coming on board as military types, I wish they would've expanded that a bit more. I think there will be 2 or 3 new characters with a group of more guys we see here and there. Kind of like how we see other crew members on the ship maybe once or twice and then we never see them again.

It kinda did end on a cliffhanger, but they didn't want to do anything big because the storyline is going to be throughout next season.

I don't think we've seen the Xindi before because they've been described as being different from each...some insect-like, some humanoid, some reptillian.

And I'm sure we'll see a lot of the military guys next season. They probably didn't want to get into them too much because it would require them to be shown, and all those details and casting hadn't been done yet.

Oh man ...

I finally got around to watching this last night, and I feel dumber for having seen the first 15 minutes. Ya see, it's a "quantum scanner" and it reads negative numbers ... yeah, that's the ticket ...

Anyway, I'm in favor of the new direction. However, I have zero faith in B&B to pull it off.

Outside of Midnight Caller, what is Gary Cole's following exactly? In the Line of Fire? A Simple Plan? Office Space? One Hour Photo?

And established sci-fi star? Crusade and American Gothic only lasted a handful of episodes.

Actually, it was more of an inside joke for Wizdar and Bandoman. There was discussion about just how much the new direction of Enterprise resembled B5-Crusade. Thus, my selection: the Captain (Gary Cole).

I didn't get the joke either. I've never seen Crusade.

[looks around] Am I in an Enterprise thread again? [Bando throws salt over his left shoulder, knocks on wood and runs away.]

Yes, I thought that was a wierd random piece of science. So, if people travel in time, they degerate to what their cells would be if they had lived all the time (or the condition of the cells that long ago)?

Strange, but the story was actually interesting.

It's like a car crash. You can't not look.

Maybe you should go back to eatin' them chips.
