* SnarkBait: As the final installment in an unbroken ''18-year run'' of Star Trek television shows, ''Enterprise'' was perhaps doomed to this status no matter what, but the generally low or inconsistent quality of the writing, lack of memorable or likable characters in contrast to most Star Trek crews, the [[TheChrisCarterEffect highly confusing]] Temporal Cold War plotline, an overreliance on [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks what had come before]], and a [[InternetBackdraft widely despised final episode]] have perhaps cemented the show's reputation forever as "that show after ''Voyager'' that almost [[FranchiseKiller killed the franchise.]]"

*** Also, the Temporal Cold War itself wasted the initial premise of the show. ''Enterprise'' was supposedly a prequel exploring how humanity took its first steps into the stars, leading to the founding of the United Federation of Planets and Starfleet as we know them. . . and the Temporal Cold War means you're not getting a show about that, you're getting a show about some jerks from the future trying to screw with that.

** Also, someone explain the logic of Khanís DNA being desirous to a Klingon. If anything, Section 31 should be the ones shooting up ''their'' agents with ''Klingon'' DNA. (''Didnít that massive three-part homage to ''[=WOK=]'' teach you anything? Khan is supercool!'' - writers)

Added DiffLines:

** Quite a few fans rejected "Bound" for pushing the boundaries of consent of the male crew, on top of the heteronormativity.


Added DiffLines:

** The infamous "A Night In Sickbay," amongst other things, gives us Archer having a nightmare about going to Porthos' funeral, which segues into a ''sexy dream about T'Pol.'' It's supposed to be titillating, and thanks to the MoodWhiplash, it fails miserably.

* HoYay: "Shuttlepod One," being a BottleEpisode with just Malcolm and Trip, can't help but have some of this.
** Hoshi and T'pol develop lots of this early on. T'pol literally takes her hand at one point while they're working on something, and it's hard not to think ''just kiss already.''

** Fan-favorite episode "Twilight" starts off with the image of ''the Earth being blown up with the crew helpless to watch.'' [[MoodWhiplash "It's been a looooong rooooad....."]]

** After the show's cancellation, fans attempted a campaign to fund a fifth season. Disregarding a substantial donation made by a group of people in the aeronautical industry, it only raised a little over $100,000 (enough to produce about a tenth of ''one'' episode), and was widely seen as a dismal failure and proof that the remaining ''Trek'' fans were at best overly dedicated to a franchise that was DeaderThanDisco, and at worst flat-out delusional. Fast-forward to the modern day however, and various types of media (including a continuation of ''Series/VeronicaMars'', the show which UPN canned ''Enterprise'' to focus their resources on) getting funding through Website/{{Kickstarter}}, it appears that the campaign to save ''Enteprise'' was actually way ahead of its time, and just lacked the infrastructure to succeed.

Added DiffLines:

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Let's just say the misguided argument for withholding a cure from the Valakians in "Dear Doctor" is just one reason Phlox is ''Star Trek's'' most divisive doctor.
** [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Kathryn Janeway]] was controversial, but not quite like Jonathan Archer. He gets accusations of DesignatedHero more often than any other Trek captain, for his [[TheResenter bitterness toward the Vulcans,]] amongst other things, leading him to some reckless decision-making (for example, he's as culpable for the result of "Dear Doctor" as Phlox, and he's also come under fire for his decisions in "The Andorian Incident" and "Cogenitor"). They made his greying morality a more central part of his character during the Xindi arc, resulting in a more interesting character, though that hasn't done much to fix the base-breaking.
