As official liaison between TrekUnited.com and SuperHeroHype, I've created this thread to provide fans of Star Trek: Enterprise a place to discuss the show and the current efforts to save it from cancellation. All efforts to save Enterprise are being coordinated at www.TrekUnited.com. Being the official liaison, I am here to answer any questions and/or concerns the fans may have. If you are a fan, youre more than welcome to discuss our movement here. If youre not a fan, you are still more than welcome to do so. We turn no one away who is genuinely interested in discussing Enterprise and our efforts to save it. All I ask is that we be respectful of each other. The first question on your mind might be, How can Enterprise be saved? Or maybe its, How can this effort to save a show be any better than others? Star Trek fans have a history of saving the franchise when the executives think weve had enough. The first series was saved by fan efforts twice. And the fans convinced Paramount to give Enterprise a season 4. Now were out to get season five. While TrekUnited is a grassroots organization of fans determined to keep the show in the minds of executives at Paramount through letter writing, faxes, email, and other methods, we are also going one step further than most other efforts. We are out to make sure that Paramount has no excuse to not produce this show for a fifth season. We are going to buy Enterprise!!! Thats right, buy Enterprise! Our goal is to raise the $36 million necessary to pay for a season of production (24 episodes). We know this sounds like a crazy idea, but thats why it is going to work. So how far have we come? As of this date (3/31/05), since 2/14/05 we have raised over $3 million! Granted, $3 million is still a long way from our goal, but our efforts have created other successes. TrekUnited has become incorporated so we can be an official sponsor, and has begun talks with Paramount (which Paramount initiated). Our work has convinced Paramount to not tear down the sets! And, due to the fans reaction, Paramount had decided to begin working on a new Trek movie. The Enterprise actors are still on contract and the show is essentially on hiatus (although it is still officially canceled). Weve come to the attention of key individuals in the civilian space programs whove donated millions and given us their full support. We also have support from cast, crew, and individuals including Manny Coto (executive producer) and Eugene Roddenberry Jr. We even have the support of members of the United States Congress! Or focus now is to keep Paramount aware of our efforts. To let them know that there is enough of an audience to support a fifth season and make it profitable. How can you help? One way is to donate your money (online through PayPal, or offline). Pay for 24-hours of a show you like to watch instead of renting a couple of DVDs or going to the theater once or twice. Think of it as on-demand TV or Pay-Per-View. If you cant or dont want to donate money, and even if you do, you can help by writing letters and emails. Send faxes and postcards. Get us mentioned in local media. Hold rallies. Do whatever you can to bring publicity to the campaign. (All we ask is that your efforts remain professional. Dont be forceful or go overboard.) And if you only have enough money to give to either TrekUnited or a charity, then, please, by all means, give to the charity. We realize what takes priority. But know that donating to the campaign and to charity are not mutually exclusive. You dont have to sacrifice one for the other. Many of our members, myself included, have donated with money from our entertainment budget, not touching money budgeted for other things. As I stated before, just dont rent movies or games for a month. Dont go to the theater quite as often. Simple little things can make a difference because any donation, no matter large or small, shows Paramount how much we love this show, and what it stands for. We can succeed! Dont let a program that promotes the heights and goodness of humanity fade away just because the profits arent there. Dont let one of the few programs left that families can watch together disappear. If 3 million people around the world (thats the world) would only give $12 to the cause, then we win. And since there are 3 million viewers in the United States alone, there is no reason we cant pull this off. If you love Enterprise and Star Trek, please help. Or if youre just tired of networks telling us what we can and cannot watch, or have lost a show that you loved, please help. Were making history. Were making the future. And you can be a part of it.
