Paramount have released details about the “final” episode of Enterprise.
The series finale is called “These Are the Voyages …” and it’s probably no secret by now that this last episode of the Star Trek prequel features two very special guest stars: Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis.
We are keeping mum on story details right now, but Frakes and Sirtis are indeed playing their Next Generation personas Riker and Troi. As co-executive producer Manny Coto mentioned in a recent interview, the finale does not involve time travel — the most we’ll tell you here is that it does involve the Holodeck.
Will it be the “final” episode, according to one report, the space flight industry has donated $3m to keep the series going.
I for one hope that it does continue, as I do really enjoy the series and series four is certainly the best yet.

Originally there was no “explanation” in terms of Star Trek, it was just that budgets and technology of the 1960s couldn’t do anything more dramatic than a Mongol look. It was the first Star Trek movie which changed the way Klingons looked…
…but now there is!
In the latest episode of Enterprises the reasons why the Klingons of the Kirk era Star Trek look different to the Klingons of the movies, the new Star Trek is finally explained.

It would seem that the Klingon have been playing with Human DNA and as a result and accidently created a virus which “dissolves” the cranial ridges and makes the Klingons look like the ones see in classic episodes such as The Trouble with Tribbles. You can now understand why Worf indicated that Klingons don’t like to talk about it….
