Enterprise News Round-up

While St. Louis will be without an UPN affiliate for another year, the local WB affiliate will be bringing Enterprise to the area starting this Fall.

According to the station's web site, three key UPN series, including Enterprise, will be shown on Saturday night. The station will air Roswell at 6pm, followed by Buffy The Vampire Slayer at 7pm and Enterprise at 8pm. UPN frequently attempts to sell its programs in syndication in markets in which it does not have an affiliate.

In a couple of years, Trek fans won't have to rely on syndication, as UPN will have an affiliate in the St. Louis area. WHSL-TV, currently an affiliate of the Home Shopping Network, is set to carry the full set of UPN programming by 2003. Thanks to Craig Morris for this!

The SyFy Portal website has posted a correction to its report from yesterday (story) featuring new tidbits from the Enterprise pilot, 'Broken Bow.'

In the original report, it was stated that the explosion in the cornfield in Oklahoma was caused by Farmer Moore firing a plasma pistol at the grain silo. However, according to the site, the script actually stated that the explosion was caused by the Klingon, Klaang, firing his disruptor at the silo.

Please be aware that this has not yet been officially confirmed by Paramount, and so should be treated as you would any rumour. The original article can be found here at SyFy Portal.

UPN has updated its website with digitized copies of the various Enterprise promos available for download.

The two 30-second trailers, entitled 'NASA,' 'Boy' and 'Breakthrough,' are each available in four different Windows Media formats, as well as a larger 1.7 MB Quicktime version. The 60-second extended version of the 'NASA' trailer is not currently available.

For those of you with slower connections, transcripts of the promos are still available here. The clips can be downloaded via UPN's Enterprise page.
