Bonus feature maestros Roger Lay, Jr. and Robert Meyer Burnett have certainly pushed the envelope with the new content on offer with this set. The four-part documentary promises to bring the series of documentaries to a nice conclusion with a candid, sincere look at the show's premature cancellation and what could have been with Season 5.
Fans of the writers reunion included on Star Trek: The Next Generation's third season Blu-ray release will be thrilled to discover that a similar-styled feature has been recorded for Enterprise's final season. The gloves are off in Enterprise's writers reunion - especially as Brannon Braga turned up slightly late, allowing the other writers to let rip with a series of hilarious tongue-in-cheek insults!
Season 4 is set to be polished off nicely with a total of five new audio commentaries, on the popular episodes "The Forge", "Observer Effect", "United", "Demons" and "Terra Prime". All great selections, although half of me wanted to see a warts-and-all exposé of the horrible series finale "These Are The Voyages..." by way of a new Berman/Braga commentary. That said, Brannon has probably already given himself more than enough criticism across these sets to last a lifetime!
