EnterpriseSPOILER ALERT! Zap2it has all the info about what it was like on the set of Enterprise on the last day of filming (the series finale airs on UPN this Friday). They reveal a big part of the plot, so only click below if you want to be spoiled. A hint: it involves Ewoks. Oh, just kidding!

I think the writers, producers and directors of Star Trek are missing the "boat" (Enterprize) when they do not merge the voyages and themes of Enterprise with the concept of reincarnation and the purpose of life on Earth and elsewhere: to populate and improve habitats for humans and other life-form "spirits" as they evolve over eons of time toward some kind of Universal Source of Energy or whatever the writers want to call IT. Some physicists such as Fred Hoyle, Einstein and even Newton played with such ideas which they did not fully describe and develop which could be unified into a believable and logical next step for Star Trek. Edgar Cayce, the Stargate TV series, the CIA Stargate program and the present generation of Remote Viewers suggest and hint at this but it has never been developed. Such a concept and development would certainly take some of the sting out of our fear of death and give us hope that we will have a chance to participate in this vast universal plan if we conceived that we all are on a vast journey and our life on Earth is but one leg of our vast journey through time and space. It would even give students some reason to learn of Einstein's theory of space and time and real warps and how all things are unified--including us as humans in the vast scheme of the universe. As I understand it, this was one of the purposes of Gene Roddenbury, the creator of Star Trek. Somewhere along the way, Hollywood got sidetracked on private enterprises of movie making rather than sticking to the spiritual trip through the Universe which Roddenbury initially intended. I suppose trying to create the SOURCE of all energy or "God" or Universal Mind was too challenging although in one episode a child is hinted at as being "God" or at least recently sent by "God".

I read the spoiler, and I must say it's not nearly as bad as the episodes were back when I sotpped watching this show. At least this plot doesn't break the timeline yet again. On the other hand, do we really needto see Riker and Troi again? Unless the next Star Trek show is focused on those characters, what's the point. I just want to use this spot to create some buzz for my idea for the next trek franchise: Star Trek, NCIS. It combines sci-fi with the procedural dramas that are so hot right now, a match made in heaven. Imagine the cool gadgets investigators will be using in (well, whenever trek is supposed to be happening) to solve crimes.

Will I watch it? Yes. Will I likely be as disappointed by it as I have the entire series? No doubt. Enterprise has been one big stinker from the get-go, and I don't think it's because of "oversaturation" (as the producers keep carping). I think it's because they failed to deliver on a reasonably intriguing idea, and because some of the actors are really, really awful. If you want to see how good sci-fi can be, look no further than the new Battlestar Galactica!
