4th season was certainly better than that temporal cold war nonsense, which was just a horrible idea and never made much sense. It did lack good standalone episodes about exploring new worlds though (which in my opinion has always been a central part of Star Trek), but then I thought Enterprise was disappointing in this regard in general (some standalone episodes were really horrible, I really disliked the one where Phlox could cure a planet's population but decides to let them all die so some neanderthal species has its chance at evolution - got the workings of evolution badly wrong in my opinion; some others like the one about 19th century humans having been enslaved by aliens were also pretty bad).
Nergal01: Fair enough. Season 4 certainly had its fair share of flaws, but also some pretty good episodes (the Vulcan trilogy, or the episodes about the Romulan efforts to destablilize the entire region of space). Me, I liked the fact that ENT had finally moved away from the Temporal Cold War and toward the founding of the Federation. That's just my opinion, of course, but at that point it finally started feeling like Trek to me. And "Terra Prime" was a pretty decent series finale, IMO. Certainly better than "These are the Voyages". Another thing I blame Berman and Braga for.
