Eight years after the {{Cancellation}} of the original ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]'' series, which had gone on to be VindicatedByReruns, Creator/{{Paramount}} Studios decided to greenlight a SequelSeries, ''Star Trek: Phase II'', to serve as a backbone of a new fourth major television network, with ''Trek'' creator Creator/GeneRoddenberry running the new show. However, within a couple of years, and after substantial pre-production had already gone forward on the new series, Paramount ultimately vetoed the idea of starting a new network.

* UnfinishedUntestedUsedAnyway: ''Enterprise'' has just gone through an 18-month refit and pretty much the entire ship has been rebuilt. They haven't even gotten to engine tests yet. Kirk orders it pressed into service anyway. RealityEnsues when they finicky warp engines glitch out and nearly get the ship destroyed.

* WeWantOurJerkBack: No one at the end seems terribly upset at the departure of Captain Decker and the return of Kirk to full-time command.

* ActivationSequence: When the refitted Enterprise leaves spacedock. The spacedock lights go dark, things disconnect and get out of the way, there is bridge chatter to report multiple forms of readiness, and in response to Kirk giving the orders for thrusters, Enterprise lights up and starts to move.

* TakeThat: A number of early promotion materials released to the press during production contained the tag line "There is no Comparison", an answer to those who speculated Paramount was just going to make a ''Franchise/StarWars'' rip-off. Younger fans may not be aware of how important it not being a Star Wars ripoff was. ''Everyone'' was doing them at this time, and most of them were really ''bad''. Not only was this not a ''Star Wars'' ripoff, it's actually rather good (for a given value of good).[[note]]If anything, it was a ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' "ripoff", more like ''2001: The Star Trek Version''.[[/note]]
