Brannon Braga and Manny Coto tell fans what a fifth season of Star Trek: Enterprise would have been like, and Braga takes the blame for the controversial Star Trek: Enterprise finale.
As reported by TrekMovie.com, a fifth season of Star Trek: Enterprise would have included a return to the Mirror Universe. Four or five episodes would have been spread through the season as a “mini-series within a series.”
Season Five would have been about tying the “origins of the Federation” and the “begin whispers of the Romulan War” together. The Romulans were to be the only major villains in the fifth season, but new minor villains within “mini-arcs” would have appeared at various points.
“Future Guy” was “probably going to be a Romulan” and would have tied into the Romulan War with a future Romulan trying to “instigate things.”
There were plans to try to make Shran the Andorian a regular character on the NX-01 in the fifth season.
Braga spoke about These Are The Voyages, the Star Trek: Enterprise finale that angered many Enterprise fans. “I will take full blame for that episode, for those that didn’t like it,” he said. “In retrospect, it was a very cool idea, that in the end was a mistake. The concept was to have Manny do a final two-part finale, but then have a final episode send a valentine to all of Star Trek over the last eighteen years. We just thought it would be a cool concept to show the Next Generation‘s crew looking back, though the holodeck, at Archer’s crew. It is a high concept, but I am not sure it came together.”
