* BestKnownForTheFanservice: ''Enterprise'' has a bit of a reputation for being more 'adult' than ''Trek'' series before, with a bit more bad language slipping through and edgier characterization. Oh, and extra {{Fanservice}} - T'pol is not-so-subtly an {{Expy}} of [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Seven Of Nine]], complete with a {{Stripperiffic}} outfit, and then there's the infamous decontamination room, an excuse to get everyone down to their underpants OnceAnEpisode.

** A lot of fans point to season 2's "Cogenitor" as [=ENT=]'s first genuinely excellent episode; at the very least, it's one of the show's most controversial.

** This actually ends up being FridgeBrilliance because what we see is the Enterprise crew having a rocky start, getting involved in dubious incidents and making mistakes and judgement errors, and then they grow steadily more competent and are shown getting involved in important matters and making wise, experienced decisions. In an in-series manner, the show GrowingTheBeard reflects on the characters and what they do, which actually shows CharacterDevelopment.

''Especially'' in Archer, who, after the events of "The Expanse" at the end of season 2, gradually turns from his naive "aw shucks" demeanor, to a much grittier, determined approach. Sadly, none of this was quite enough to overcome the loss in viewership and fandom goodwill.



** More damagingly, Rick Berman had been the man in charge of the franchise since Gene Roddenberry's death, and in the first two seasons fans got the distinct impression that his mindset was still stuck in how television worked at that time, ignoring how the format had been revolutionized starting in the late '90s to feature heavy serialization and few standalone stories.
*** However, when the series ''did'' adopt this format (season 3's Xindi arc; season 4's mini-arcs), it was rejected (and indeed, even today there is serious discontinuity in various fandoms between those who want serials and those who prefer standalones. See ''Series/DoctorWho''.)

* ShockingSwerve: The ending of Season 3. After a season's worth of fighting Xindi, talking to Xindi, and being informed by Daniels that the Temporal Cold War hinges on correctly resolving the Xindi situation, the crew finally stops the Xindi weapon and gets ready for a heroic homecoming only to find... [[spoiler:Nazis have taken over the world. Because of the Temporal Cold War]]. Not only did this completely pull the rug out from under the dramatic finale episodes, it came with ''no foreshadowing whatsoever'' and had nothing at all to do with the Xindi.

* NarmCharm: "It's been a looooong road... gettin' from there to heeeere..." Somewhere between a Music/{{Creed}} ballad and Music/AirSupply, the ''Enterprise'' theme is both mocked and remembered fondly in equal measure to this day.

*** It really doesn't. In Fortunate Son, the freighter crew tortured a Nausicaan for information, then almost gets destroyed when they used the ([[SarcasmMode shockingly!]]) false information to hunt down the Nausicaans. In Silent Enemy, however, the Enterprise crew merely improved their weapons systems for when the Elachi returned. No torture, no recklessly chasing a better armed enemy.
