SaveEnterprise.com Aims To Do Just ThatBy Michelle

As the deadline approaches for network decisions about their fall television lineups, fans have responded with a sense of urgency to UPN's refusal to confirm a place for Star Trek: Enterprise on its schedule.
One of the newest efforts, SaveEnterprise.com, went live on March 27th and logged 300,000 hits in a week.
Like the fans who started The Enterprise Project, which collected funds for an ad in The Hollywood Reporter in support of the series, SaveEnterprise.com founder T. Brazeal expressed dismay at the focus on controversial Neilsen ratings by the network, fearing that UPN did not have a real sense of the scope of Enterprise's fan base.
Brazeal said that since he started the campaign, fans from all over the United States offered support and services, including web design and promotion.
The front page of the site currently features the addresses at UPN and CBS where Enterprise actors have advised viewers to send letters and postcards in support of another season.
SaveEnterprise.com also suggests calling UPN directly once a day to "Save Enterprise", while The Enterprise Project has launched a postcard campaign to "bug" the network by sending images of bugs meant to be reminiscent of the Xindi-Insectoids.
