Trek’s Connor Trinneer Tepid On “Enterprise” Finale

The finale to Star Trek: Enterprise (ST:ENT) continues to get lukewarm reviews by cast members following cancellation of the series earlier this year.  At a recent academic seminar, Connor Trinneer (who plays Cmdr. Charles "Trip" Tucker) joined his colleague, actress Jolene Blalock (Cmdr. T’Pol) sounding critical of the final episode, titled "These are the voyages…"

"They did what they felt like they had to do to wrap it up," Trinneer said. "That’s not a ringing endorsement, I know."

Trinneer further commented on the final day of production, indicating a demoralized atmosphere – saying that instead of wrapping up the series with a farewell party, "everyone just quietly left."

One can’t help but feel for cast members and the production crew.  I admit, I wasn’t thrilled with Enterprise at first, but the Xindi episodes in Season 3 caught my eye and finally had me thinking, as with prior trek series, it was getting good starting in the 3rd season and would continue to be solid through the normal 7-season lifetime.  Although I watched almost every episode in the first 2 seasons, I almost feel guilty about my original view somhow given what’s happened.  And I’m disappointed that Braga, UPN and Paramount coulnd’t find a way to get their act together.

And angst must surely be growing amongst the millions of fans who’ve had Star Trek integrated into their lives for decades about how bad the final episode will be and what impact it might have on getting another series started.  If it’s as bad as it sounds, there’s always the risk fans might get turned off Trek permanently.

And then the finale might as well be titled "These are the voyages that were".  For there may be no more.

The series finale airs May 13, 2005.  (See ST:ENT Season 4 Episode Guide for details.)
