Scott Bakula believes not being in syndication killed Star Trek: Enterprise

Scott Bakula believes syndication would’ve saved Star Trek: Enterprise. UPN was the home of Star Trek for a decade. From 1995 to 2005. During that time, two network shows aired. The first was the successful Star Trek: Voyager, which lasted seven seasons and was a statement show for the franchise. The second was Star Trek: Enterprise; a prequel series that told the story of how the Federation of Planets came to be. It was also the first Star Trek series to invest big money in the lead, bringing in sci-fi legend Scott Bakula as the main character, Captain Johnathan Archer.

Scott Bakula Thinks This Is Why Star Trek: Enterprise Was Doomed

But "Enterprise" was by no means perfect. At best, it was rife with missed opportunities. The series tried to deliver on its prequel premise, but largely abandoned enticing "here's how this happened" storylines in favor of extraneous threads. Some of its most promising episodes were those that dealt in the gritty reality that humans faced in lawless space, but those narratives were few and far between. Plus, its theme song apparently sucked (I'm not ashamed to say I loved it, though).

He, of course, played Special Agent Dwayne Cassius “King” Pride on the show from 2014 until 2021. Prior to that, you may have seen Bakula in other popular shows. He is also known for his roles as Sam Beckett on Quantum Leap and as Captain Jonathan Archer on Star Trek: Enterprise.

Scott Bakula was the only actor ever considered for Captain Archer

Star Trek: Enterprise didn’t have a fallback plan without Scott Bakula. Usually, when a series as big as Star Trek is casting for an important role like the captain of the Enterprise, there would be a line of actors being considered. The production team would pore over auditions, call back actors for more reads, and take quite some time before finally making a decision. That wasn’t how things worked with Star Trek: Enterprise as Scott Bakula had the interest of the team from the start.
