Star Trek Enterprise Season 4
The fourth season of Star Trek Enterprise was just recently released on DVD and after seeing the third season not long ago I was eager to see what this one had to offer.
The Xindi are no longer a threat, but that doesn't mean captain Archer is out of a job. It starts off where we left in the third season. After destroying the Xindi weapon Archer wakes up on earth, but not on earth as he knows it. He wakes up in an alternative reality during WWII where the Nazis has invaded parts of America.
Where the third season was one long story the fourth is built around multiple stories varying from 1-3 episodes in length. In many ways I liked the idea of the whole season as one long story, but many of these also works great. In many ways it brings more to the overall story as it's not just about one main topic.
Captain Archer and the crew aboard the Enterprise soon enough find themselves involved in trouble all over the place, from the Vulcan High Command to radical groups on earth.
It was with a bit of a strange feeling I sat down and watched the last episode knowing that this was it, no more seasons to come with captain Archer and his crew. It was a strange episode though and actually one of those liked least among all I've seen. It also made no sense to me at least having one of the main crew members die in the last episode. If it were that kind of realism the creators were looking for they should have gone down that path much much earlier.
Overall I think this season was just as good as the third and it made for a very enjoyable watch.
