  • Canadian channel Space! has been gearing up for its own Enterprise premier by showing its own promotional videos. While they shown no actual show footage, the videos are rather amusing. The three separate promos show an anti Star Trek van moving through Toronto proclaiming about the current nasty state of the Space network. Apparently is shows too much Star Trek. The videos, in real media format, can be found here. Thanks go out to Chris Harrison for this!
