Freaking crap! SaveEnterprise.com has managed to amass over 3 million dollars in donations to bring the currently cancelled Star Trek: Enterprise back for at least a 5th season. At the very least, Paramount needs to realize that demographics aren’t everything. Loyalty is a very big deal in the Star Trek universe (besides, without money, loyalty is all that’s left). So, with any luck, Paramount will finally come to their senses and uncancel Enterprise.
Malfourmed writes “TrekUnited.com today announced that three anonymous contributors from the commercial spaceflight industry have stepped forward with a $3 million pledge toward the campaign to ensure a fifth season for the recently cancelled Star Trek: Enterprise. The benefactors explained why they believe this campaign deserves such a substantial contribution: ‘We think Star Trek and especially its latest incarnation, Enterprise is the kind of TV that should be aired more often. The people responsible at Paramount think this is just a show and we want to tell them, it is not. We are in the commercial space flight industry and would like to testify that at least one out of two of all the actual entrepreneurs involved in this industry has been inspired by Star Trek; and we are not only good at watching TV sci-fi , we are also good at writing checks, big checks. The people airing this kind of TV have a responsibility; inspiration.'”
Beam me up, Scotty!
