Critic Reviews for Star Trek: Enterprise Season 3

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Even at the slow rate at which time moves on this series, the '70s ought to be over before we know it.

Well, at least it's less boring... But it does trip over itself

May 3, 2019 | Full Review…

Enterprise gets better with every series, shame this was the penultimate.

Oct 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Whether by accident or design, when it tackled the issues of stem cells, cloning and designer babies, Enterprise actually managed to get it right.

Oct 27, 2017 | Full Review…

With the season-long arc and some desperately needed friction between the characters, Enterprise made some great strides in quality.

Enterprise's third season is a major missed opportunity.

Audience Reviews for Star Trek: Enterprise: Season 3

  • Aug 15, 2016
    Enterprise gets rebranded as "Star Trek: Enterprise" and is given a revamped theme song in its third season as it attempts an unprecedented season long story arc. In the wake of a deadly attack on Earth by an unknown alien race called the Xindi, the Enterprise is sent on an urgent mission into unexplored space to find them and prevent them from launching any further attacks. It's a really interesting idea, but the execution is a bit lacking, as the Xindi story is broken up by a number of stand-alone episodes that disrupt the momentum. Yet, these breaks allow the show to balance out the main story arc with more traditional episodes about character development and exploration. Incredibly ambitious, Season 3 of Star Trek: Enterprise pushes the limits of the series and asks some very provocative moral and ethical questions.

    Woefully underrated series!

    pretty much the best season of Enterprise as character developments and dramatic events provide deeper and a longer story arc than we've seen so far

    A very big disappointment, but not for the reasons I had ignored watching it the first time around. Enterprise has good actors, and the occasional great performance, especially from my favorite, Jeffrey Coombs who played the Andorian Shran with an occasional recurrent role). The sets I thought were great, along with the costuming for everyone except T'Pol (which this comes into the problems I have). The problem comes down to the writing. It is the laziest, sexist, unimaginative writing that I have seen in the Star Trek universe, overall more so then even the first season of ST:NG. The number of rape/assaults that occurred randomly on the show (mostly using mind-melds as the stand in) were fairly common. They even had T'Pol who seems to be the constant recipient of this do it back to someone else. That bothered me a lot. Then we get into the sexist treatment of T'Pol in general, constant forcing her into those situations, combined with that stupid body fitting outfit she wore, instead of the normal uniform. The ramrod writing of trying to shoehorn her into scenes such as the decon room where they have her sweating and posing sexually while waiting for the decontamination happens. I also need to point out that there were very few original ideas in the series as well. Instead of taking this opportunity to maybe do something more gritty (maybe on a Babylon 5 level) they instead reworked a lot of episodes (well sometimes not even reworking) from the original series. They also tended to not tell stories linearly, instead starting from the end and going back which is not their strength (stay in your lane). In addition there was no actual character progression, any progress in a character that was learned in a story disappeared within two more episodes. Not even counting the fact that the behavior of the characters would sometimes be 180 degrees from what they said in other episodes. I wonder if they even had a plot bible, which is a book or data store that records all the personality traits of each character and things that happen to change them, this way multiple writers have the same base character for each of their stories and it allows them to slowly change a character. Overall the sad writing is what made this show sink for me. I can't blame the actors at all, they did what they could. It was a chore to finish Season 4. Pros: The actors worked hard on this and did make it more watchable (especially Jeffrey Coombs). Cons: The writing was a mess, no permanent progression, no real original ideas, just rehashing old subjects.

    A new showrunner and a coherent storyline that takes the entire season to tell, Enterprise Season 3 is where the show turned it all around. While the season is still marred by some completely unnecessary episodes that have nothing to do with the core story of the season and feel shockingly out of place with the tone of what's going on, the Xindi arc started at the end of Season 2 is the best season of Trek since Deep Space Nine's Dominion War arc. The show does drop the ball right at the end, though, with the completely ludicrous 'time-traveling alien space nazis' story shoved in as a season-ending cliffhanger, though Season 4 does a decent job at wrapping up that story somewhat convincingly and very quickly.
