'Enterprise' To Be Syndicated Next FallBy Michelle

Star Trek: Enterprise will be available for weekend rerun syndication for the 2005-6 television season, Paramount announced in advertisements in Hollywood trade papers this week.
Cyrus at the Trek BBS posted a transcript of the three-page ad, which he described as "a very nice 2 page spread which shows the cast plus NX-01."
"5 TELEVISION SERIES...10 MOTION PICTURES...MILLIONS OF LOYAL FANS...ONE STELLAR OPPORTUNITY," hyped the ad copy. The text emphasized that Enterprise was UPN's top-ranked series among men 18-49 and men 25-54 every season, with the highest concentration of the latter demographic of any prime time show on network.
Cyrus speculated that the reason the show was being offered for weekend syndication rather than the more lucrative daily market might be because Paramount had plans to sell the weekday rights to a cable network. If the series runs beyond this season, the network would also have more episodes to offer.
