''[[http://wiki.alternatehistory.com/doku.php/stories/reimagined_enterprise Reimagined Enterprise]]'' is a work posted on AlternateHistoryDotCom by [=BlackWave=], also known as the author of ''SwarmOnTheSomme'' and ''Great Interstellar War''. Essentially it is a ContinuityReboot of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', seeking to address some of the issues fans had with that show by making significant changes, while still producing something recognisably similar rather than just generically 'a prequel to Franchise/StarTrek'.

The series is posted in episodic form, but as written prose rather than scripts. It is currently part way through its second season. Most of the episodes are written by [=BlackWave=], but there have been some written by guest writers including Tropers/{{Thande}}, trekchu and William_Dellinger.

A list of episodes with links to them can be found [[http://wiki.alternatehistory.com/doku.php/stories/reimagined_enterprise here]].

Has a [[Characters/ReimaginedEnterprise cast page]].

----
Contains examples of:
* ArcWelding: This series puts together many different disconnected references and plot points from Star Trek canon into new stories.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Doctor Zora ''does not understand'' why the Enterprise crew are so horrified by her kidnapping a good chunk of the population of a primitive planet and doing experiments on them. The Enterprise crew clearly belong to ''developed'' species, after all, not like the primitives of Tiburon. She says her expedition has backing from her home-planet, but it is left unclear to what degree they are aware of and would agree with what is happening on Tiburon and so how much this trope applies to the Teloshi in general and not just Doctor Zora 'of Tiburon'.
* BroadStrokes: There are various comparisons that can be made to the canon ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' despite almost all the details being different: Captain Hwai's grandfather was involved in the development of the warp five engine, just as Archer's father was; there are characters called Travis Mayweather and T'Pol, though the actual people are quite different; the first episode involves first contact between humans and Klingons; and so on.
* CallForward: Constantly.
* CanonFodder: [=BlackWave=] likes using the [[CrypticBackgroundReference Cryptic Background References]] from chronologically later Franchise/StarTrek shows as the basis for stories.
* CanonImmigrant: Incorporates some ideas from the non-canon Star Trek novels, such as "Rihannsu" being the real name of the Romulans and "Romulans" being a human code name for them.
** A version of the Optimum Movement from ''Literature/{{Federation}}'' appears as antagonists during the Postatomic Horror in the flashback in "Remembrance".
* CargoCult: In "Ex Machina" the crew encounter a group who formed a CargoCult around the Borg after their psychics intercepted a Borg transmission.
* ContinuityReboot
* DeweyDefeatsTruman: The solution this series presents for the Eugenics Wars is that they they ''did'' happen, and they were open wars, but that a lot of it was our-universe conflicts and incidents that here had a connection to the Augments (for instance, there was an intervention in Somalia in 1992, but here it was an intervention against the Khanate).
* DividedStatesOfAmerica: "Remembrance" shows the late twenty-first century USA having fallen into this state as a result of WorldWarIII and the Postatomic Horror, even being nicknamed 'the Disunited States'.
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: In a minor example, [=McLeod=] and Satterthwaite's ancestors met once during the Postatomic Horror, although their descendants weren't aware of it until they shared family stories in "Remembrance".
* FixFic: Some episodes are devoted to resolving [[ContinuitySnarl Continuity Snarls]] from the Franchise/StarTrek canon, especially the guest episodes written by Thande.
* FutureImperfect: A few minor examples mentioned in passing, though stemming from ignorance of the historical record rather than there not actually being one. For example, at one point Captain Bowman of the ''Dauntless'' mixes up Buzz Aldrin with [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Buzz Lightyear]].
* HealingFactor: [[spoiler:Mr Abramsom, AKA Flint from TOS]].
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Many -- UESPA might only have two ''Enterprise''-class starships (the second, ''Columbia'', commanded by Captain Erika Hernandez), but Shran is reminiscient of his counterpart in the canonical show, and Earth has other classes of ships. The eponymous episode ''Of Another Story'' focuses entirely on Captain Paul Stiles of the ''Daedalus'' and one of the incidents the ''Daedalus'' is involved.
* FantasticRacism: Vulcans are sometimes dubbed 'elves' and Tellarites 'pigs'.
* KlingonsLoveShakespeare: Cardassians love GeorgeOrwell, used to explain the inconsistencies in stated Cardassian history in Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration and Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine--it was subject to an OrwellianEditor--and the use of Orwellian themes in the famous "[[TwoPlusTortureEqualsFive There are four lights]]" scene.
** The TropeNamer is also explored, with the Klingons first discovering Shakespeare on a data disk they accidentally pilfered from the ''Enterprise'' while taking prisoners.
*** A season later, we learn the new regime has been distributing Shakespeare's collected works throughout the Empire under the guise of being [[InTheOriginalKlingon rediscovered traditional Klingon literature]].
* LeastCommonSkinTone: Averted, the cast is considerably diversified relative to the canon ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' to more realistically reflect United Earth and address a common fan complaint.
* MeaningfulRename: The Hebitian race renames itself the Cardassians after being taken over by the fascist Galor Cardas group.
* MirrorUniverse: The one that was the TropeNamer, of course. Each season has one "Mirror Shards" episode set in the Mirror Universe, using similar concepts to the acclaimed "In A Mirror, Darkly" episode from the canon show.
* MythArc: The approaching Earth-Romulan War [[spoiler: up until the last episode of the second season, where it shifts into the ''ongoing'' Earth-Romulan War]]. Would be a spoiler, except, of course, it was established [[Recap/StarTrekS1E14BalanceOfTerror long before the series]] that there was an Earth-Romulan War around this time.
* MythologyGag: All the time. One example is that, in a flashback showing the Eugenics Wars, Khan Noonien Singh's fanatical supporters shout their leader's name as a war cry...so in other words, "''[[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan KHAAAAAAAAAN!]]''"
* NamedAfterTheirPlanet: The Romulans get this because the name is said to be a human codename derived from an older human arbitrary label for their star on old starmaps which drew upon mythological names. Also with other races there are sometimes attempts to justify this, for example saying that that race has many languages and doesn't have a single common name for its homeworld, so humans just name the world after the race.
* NamesTheSame: Some characters have the same names as their canon Enterprise counterparts, but are decidedly different characters, such as T'Pol, Travis Mayweather and Shran.
* NoTranshumanismAllowed: Star Trek's use of this trope is explored; the Eugenics Wars had already justified why BioAugmentation is off the table, and the reason for cyborgs being a no-no appears to be that there were a few experiments in cybernetics on twenty-first century Earth, but the collapse of the internet as a result of WorldWarIII meant the users all died in a KeystoneArmy fashion.
* ParodyNames: An exaggerated version of the canon show's Jonathan Archer called Abner Bowman appears as the captain of the USS ''Dauntless''; Abner being a relative and colleague of Jonathan in TheBible and bowman being another word for archer.
* PlanetOfHats: Usually there are some attempts to avert or reduce this trope compared to the canon show. To be fair, the prose format makes it somewhat easier to avoid reducing races to a stereotype compared to TV.
* RecursiveCanon: One of the early twenty-first century pop songs Audrey Rocia listens to is ''Faith of the Heart''.
** The crew refer to the works of Creator/LarryNiven, yet there are hints that (as in WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries) the Kzinti race exists in this setting, and they were created by Larry Niven. (This paradox is {{lampshaded}} at one point).
* ShoutOut: Besides the internal ones to ''Franchise/StarTrek'' itself, there are others.
** Captain Hwai is a fan of ''RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'' and compares the pig-like Tellarites to Zhu Bajie from ''JourneyToTheWest'', for instance.
** One of the ships visibly trapped within the gravitic anomaly in "Becalmed" appears to be a [[StarWars TIE Fighter]], and later in the background of an image on Hebitia / Cardassia we see [[Series/StargateSG1 Goa'uld Death Gliders]] and [[DoctorWho the TARDIS]].
** Some members of the turtle-like Chelon race from Rigel [[Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles wear coloured bandanna masks, and get code named after Renaissance painters by Rajwal]]. [[spoiler:In a subversion, none of the painters' names he picks are those of the actual Ninja Turtles]].
* TakeAThirdOption: Many fans disliked the overly [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]-like aesthetic from ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' and most fan reimaginings give ''Enterprise'' a more [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries TOS]]-like aesthetic instead. Rather than doing this, [=BlackWave=] instead created his own 22nd century aesthetic that's halfway between contemporary spacecraft like the Space Shuttle or Dream Chaser and TOS, logically enough.
* TakeThat: A few aimed at the canon show:
** The rest of the crew can't stand this "Faith of the Heart" song Rocia listens to...
** In "The Giant's Foot", Mayweather pretends not to know the name Rigel in order to get a rise out of Al-Hamdani, who points out it is one of the most well-known stars in Earth's night sky. This being a reference to how the canon pilot episode "Broken Bow" bizarrely seemed to think Rigel was an ''alien'' name that none of the human crew had heard of before.
* ThemeNaming: The Enterprise-class ships are named after space shuttles. (This idea was also used in the StarTrekEnterpriseRelaunch novels, both noting that for purely coincidental reasons, the two NX-class ships seen in the show itself were called ''Enterprise'' and ''Columbia'', just like the first two space shuttles).
* ThrowItIn: The ''Dauntless'' class starship design started out as Thande's own concept for an ''Enterprise'' NX-01, and was incorporated into this setting as a different class of ship.
** ''The Dauntless'' uses a visual CallForward (the two ships flying in formation) to imply that the ''Dauntless'' and ''Enterprise'' starship designs '''both''' lead to the ''Constitution'' design lineage, the ''Enterprise'' providing the saucer-section and the ''Dauntless'' providing the tubular secondary hull.
* WhamEpisode: Second season finale "Salem-One", which reveals just why Picard once compared that space station to Pearl Harbour...
