Is Star Trek: Enterprise the Final Nail?

[Sci-Fi]

Next year could be the first without a new Trek series on the air since I got out of high school. I blame, in no particular order: Scott Bakula (terrible actor), the theme song of Enterprise (it must drive away viewers by thousands), UPN (might as well put the show on QVC in the middle of the night), the entire cast of Voyager (for being thoroughly bland and unlikeable and for teaching us geeks that just because a new Star Trek is on that doesn't mean we can't be doing something else), and Alexander (forget Wesley Crusher, Worf's son was the definitive episode killer). I've only seen a few episodes of Enterprise but have been impressed by the production quality. I just can't stay with it because Bakula is a drag, because I always change the channel when Power Balladeer Theme Song Singer Guy commences to kicking me in the nuts with his "faith of the heart" styling so I end up watching a Law and Order repeat instead. Last night's episode looked great, but I felt like the story was too all over the place with transdimensional beings and the giant spheres and Archer having been 400 years in the future and all this stuff is a little jarring because it just doesn't seem to fit in the continuity. Where were all these species during the TNG/DS9 years?
