Scott Bakula (Jonathan Archer) recently had talks with Paramount brass regarding the fate of Star Trek: Enterprise, according to a new online rumour.
Cinescape's anonymous source told the web site that Bakula took part in a "secret meeting" with Paramount executive Garry Hart. Hart, who has been President of Paramount Network Television since 1993, oversees shows such as Frasier and JAG, as well as Enterprise.
The talks reportedly centred around "the future leadership and direction" of the latest Star Trek series. Cinescape's source speculated that "Hart may now be working with Bakula to put a new production staff in place to save Enterprise."
Last month the same source reported that Enterprise executive producer Rick Berman could be on his way out, but any decision about the make-up of the production staff would not be made until after the show's February sweeps performance was assessed (story).
Please note that this is an unconfirmed rumour from one anonymous source and should be taken with a grain of salt. No announcement has been made by Paramount Pictures or UPN about any behind-the-scenes changes.
