The time travel thing was overall kind of dumb, and honestly it just kind of faded away rather than actually reaching any kind of satisfying conclusion (the whole Xindi thing, but that didn’t really focus much on the Temporal Cold War thing).
Overall I enjoyed the series. I think it had a lot of flaws, and it could have been a hell of a lot better, but I really enjoyed the performance the cast of the show gave and I liked a lot of the characters ( Sometimes seemingly despite the writer’s/producer’s efforts to wreck the series) thanks to the wonderful cast.
But! (knew this was coming right?) I hated the last episode. That was the most utter crap series finale.
Biggest problem, the killed off a major character for NO REASON AT ALL. I mean what the hell? They couldn’t have just left the character alone for the 45 minutes of the last episode? It wasn’t “dramatic” or “touching” or “meaningful” or any of that, it just annoyed the shit out of me and left a really bad taste in my mouth about the series overall. It just seemed like a mean and pointless thing they did, and I can’t fathom why they would have done it except to maybe try and make the final episode seem “meaningful” or “heartfelt” because the majority of the rest of the story was crap.
They didn’t even show Archer’s speech. What the hell! And on top of that they don’t tell you what happens/will happen to all the characters. The series finales resolves more or less nothing and then leaves you up in the air. Crap.
Also, the appearance of the Next Gen people and ship, while as fan it was neat to see them again, was an absolute shit thing to do to the cast of Enterprise. It was their last episode, at least let THEM, the actual cast of the show, have the last episode. It struck me as some sort of bizarre strive for ratings at a point when it was much too late, or else “somebody” just wanted to try and throw their old glories on the screen as the newest series is canceled due to its lousy ratings.
Most horribly disappointing finale I’ve ever had to watch.
