Brief Synopsis:
The finale of Enterprise has been the most buzzed about and disliked episode of any Star Trek series ever. This is the attempt of correcting that error and create a last episode of a series that really can be enjoyed!!
Intention:
To create a worty ending to a great series.
Additional Notes:
This has been the most buzzed about and disliked episode of any Star Trek series ever, so this is my attempt of correcting that error and create a last episode of a series that really can be enjoyed!!
Release Information
AVI/MKV
Editing Details:
All scenes where Riker and/or Troi are visible have been removed and/or re-edited to fit well with the story.
This episode now totally foucuses on the final story of Enterprise, this time told without interference.
I have also removed all scenes and references to the holodeck, making this an actual event, not a holodeck recording.
Also changed running speed in some places when needed to speed up or slow down parts of a scene to make it fit into the story.
IMPORTANT: This is not e re-edit of my old release, but a brand new version totally made from scratch!
Cuts and Additions:
Cut all scenes with Riker and/or Troi, also cut all scenes from Next Generation-ship Enterprise, thus altering the material to go from a holodeck recording to an adventure actually taking place during the whole episode!

A little short, but that just shows you how little care went into filling out the time for the series regulars in favour of more for the guest stars...what a disgrace the Enterprise finale was, reducing everyone it's fans invested in to holodeck narratives...given how unpredictable holodecks are on Star Trek, who can even tell if this is a historical record of what happened? Even without the prescense of Riker and Troy, it continued an ongoing downbeat trend of all the Star Trek finales that wasn't "All Good Things" (yes, there's a few hopeful things in DS9's ending, but it's tinged with the cost of war, departures, and Sisko's sacrifice), and the lack of TNG only demonstrates that Enterprise had perhaps the most dire ending of them all. Is this the vision Roddenberry set out to demonstrate? The federation is born out of a tragic, not upbeat event, what an underhanded betrayal of Roddenberry's vision.

This is no fault of the editor, he wanted the Enterprise team to reclaim control of THEIR show, and to this extent he just about pulls it off. There's a few rough transitions but they don't pull you out of the viewing experience, they're just a little "quick", one thing that should have been addressed is the cross-fade, that should not be in there, it makes the thing look amateur.

Enterprise was never my favourite Trek show, but the fourth season showed it deserved more of a chance than it got. I strongly suggest constructing a unique fan-edited series finale for yourselves using any episode footage BUT this, as an edit, it's almost competent, as a finale, it's barely capable.

Sincerely, a Trekkie.

3.This was a valiant effort, and I applaud the work that went into this.
However, since so much time had to be removed due to the holodeck nonsense, this was more like a “sorry-it’s-over-here’s-something-to-send-it-off-with-what-we-wrote-last-night-on-cocktail-napkins”.

Mind you, that’s no fault of Insignia’s. The source material was… ‘lacking’, to put it lightly.

Anyway, on to the details.

Technical quality: 6/10 with a +1 for effort.
Poor Jonathan Frakes was the bane of this edit in -so- many ways. Pan/Zoom to get him out of the shot degraded the quality a bit. Audio was tolerable for where this came from.

Editing quality: 7/10 with a +1 for effort.
There were some noticeable chops that could’ve been smoothed over with other ship/shuttle/planet external shots from different episodes, but that’s just how I’d try to fill it in. Although, seeing as how I’ve only done five minute edits on youtube, take that with a grain of salt.

Presentation: N/A – avi

Entertainment: 8/10 – This was far better than what was presented on the air, even IF it was so short.

Overall: 7/10
