A source at UPN told SyFy Portal on Wednesday that Star Trek: Enterprise is not in immediate danger of cancellation.
Speaking to SyFy Portal's Michael Hinman, the source said the show was performing well. "The ratings for the show are above expectations. Critics can attack us against Superman all they want. But we're holding our own," the UPN insider said.
The only chance for cancellation exists when the network makes its official announcements for the fall schedule. But the source called the chance of Enterprise not being picked up "small."
The rumor about Enterprise's season being cut down from 26 to 24 episodes has been confirmed by Paramount, according to TrekWeb. A Trek season past the first season (which generally have fewer episodes) hasn't had fewer than 26 episodes since Star Trek: The Next Generation's second season, when a writer's strike cut down the number of episodes that season to 22.
