Rally To Save Enterprise

I mean, the show has finally gotten good.

Star Trek" fans from around the world gathered at the gates of Paramount Studios in Hollywood Friday to protest the impending cancellation of the television series "Star Trek: Enterprise."

Carrying signs reading "It's Not Just a Show, It's a Responsibility" and "18 Years of Loyalty & This Is the Thanks I Get?," more than 100 people massed at the gates of the studio where "Enterprise" is produced to show support for a franchise that has perhaps the most loyal fan base in the world.

None wore costumes, however, in a departure from many gatherings of "Trekkies."

The UPN network, which like Paramount is a unit of Viacom Inc., said earlier this month it would end "Enterprise" in May after its fourth season. But the fans are not letting it go quietly.

I just wish that there was some possibility of SciFi picking it up.
