  • Undeveloped Star Trek: Enterprise episodes
rdfs:comment
  • Numerous undeveloped Star Trek episodes were written for Star Trek: Enterprise. These stories were submitted or developed for production, but for various reasons never aired. Even in the series' first season, many story pitches ended up being unused for Enterprise. Fred Dekker, who worked on that initial season, later recalled, "On Enterprise, we staff writers would hear pitches a few times a month, and I came across a couple of ideas that I thought would make terrific episodes. So I would write these up and submit them thinking, 'Yeah, this is going to make for a great episode of Enterprise,' only to never hear anything about them again. It was like throwing ideas into a black hole." (Star Trek Magazine issue 180, pp. 70)

(Star Trek Magazine issue 180, pp. 70) Either late in ENT Season 2 or during the interim between that season and the next, Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens suggested multiple narrative ideas to Mike Sussman and Phyllis Strong. "We had a great meeting with Mike and Phyllis, and pitched all sorts of stories," remembered Garfield Reeves-Stevens. However, the plot concepts were deemed unnecessary because the series was about to enter a season-long arc exploring the Xindi incident and therefore didn't require a lot of standalone episodes.
