** The show's higher focus on sex appeal and low brow humor was an attempt to emulate the success of ''{{Series/Baywatch}}''. This failed for two reasons: firstly, ''Baywatch'' and ''Star Trek'' had two entirely different audiences. ''Baywatch'' fans had no interest in watching the show and the established ''Star Trek'' fanbase were driven away by the immature plots and characters. Secondly, by the time the show came out, the internet and internet porn was in widespread use, meaning ''Baywatch'''s famous sex appeal was no longer successful as a marketing ploy. Anyone wanting to be titillated didn't have to watch the [[PoorMansPorn decon gel scenes]] to try and get turned on.

This failed for two reasons: firstly, ''Baywatch'' ''Buffy'' and ''Star Trek'' had two entirely appealed to significantly different audiences. ''Baywatch'' ''Buffy'' fans had no interest in watching the show and the established ''Star Trek'' fanbase were driven away by the immature cliche plots and unprofessional characters. Secondly, by the time the show came out, the internet and internet porn was in widespread use, meaning ''Baywatch'''s famous sex appeal was no longer successful as a marketing ploy. Anyone wanting to be titillated didn't have to watch the [[PoorMansPorn of Buffy came mostly from having attractive characters with active sex lives, not from blatant {{fanservice}}. The decontamination chamber scenes with decon gel scenes]] to try were derided as boring and get turned on.not particularly titillating.

** The series ended an 18-year run of ''Star Trek'' series on US TV, and fandom pretty much imploded during its run due to its divisiveness. Although there was talk of yet another ''Star Trek'' series being commissioned after ''Enterprise's'' cancellation, this was soon put aside in favor of restarting the franchise anew with the 2009 film. That film and its sequel, despite further dividing the fanbase, were successful enough for Paramount and CBS to green-light a new Star Trek series which will premiere in January 2017.

* TroubledProduction: Rick Berman had been campaigning for a break in televised Star Trek as far back as Voyager, but Paramount was adamant on having a new series following the end of Voyager. Brannon Braga looked to get some fresh blood into the franchise by getting a new writing staff, but discovered they were not up to the task of handling an hour long television show like Star Trek. Braga was forced to rewrite almost every episode of the first two seasons, a fact he is not proud of. Being a network show meant they had a lot more studio micromanagement, and efforts to make a newer, fresh series were forced back into the Star Trek cliche. Things got a little bit better near the end of the second season when Braga was given the go-ahead to shake things up, and the third season brought in another writing staff, including Manny Coto, who became the showrunner for the fourth season.

* {{McLeaned}}: T'Pol's mother, who was a key part of Spock not being an officious lying prick like the ''Enterprise''-era Vulcans were, was killed offscreen because the studio couldn't afford to pay the actress. The script for "Awakening" was hastily re-written to explain this.

* RecycledScript: "[=E

* CreatorKiller: While co-creator Brannon Braga was ultimately able to shrug off the show's failure without much trouble, long-time franchise head honcho Rick Berman wasn't so lucky. Since the series went off the air, he hasn't worked as another writer or producer on anything, with all his subsequent credits only being as a participant in various ''Trek''-related documentaries.

** "Future Guy"'s name came from fans who started using it to refer to the humanoid figure and eventually, the producers of Enterprise used it as the character's actual name in the script. In his video review of "Broken Bow" years later, Chuck Sonnenburg commented how it pains him that what should have been the BigBad of the series ended up taking a name [[AppropriatedAppellation derived from sarcasm]], another sign of how the Temporal Cold War was poorly plotted and poorly planned. He was listed on the ''Memory Alpha'' wiki as "Future Guy" for a few years, before being renamed "Humanoid Figure" in keeping with the site's in-universe tone.
** Chuck's exact quote is even featured at the top of the AscendedMeme trope page, although the example itself more closely fits an example of Ascended Fanon.
