Star Trek: Enterprise (formerly just "Enterprise") was the fifth TV series in the Star Trek universe. It was a prequel, set earlier in the timeline than any of the other series, and intended to show how the United Federation of Planets came to be. It ran for four seasons, from 2001 to 2005, before being canceled.

Enterprise Fandom

Enterprise was a largely pre-LJ fandom, existing on bulletin boards and mailing lists. In the nature of things, many of the fans followed Scott Bakula from Quantum Leap fandom, came to Enterprise from broader Star Trek fandom, or got involved by playing on centralised fansites such as TrekBBS. The main fic archive was the Warp 5 Complex, which mainly archived fic from the EntSTSlash (created July 15, 2002[1]) and EntSTFic (created Nov 26, 2002[2]) Yahoo! groups. The site is currently maintained and updated principally by Kylie Lee[3].

Fansites existed for all of the major actors, as well as a number of the characters; probably the largest and most successful of the latter was the House of Tucker, dedicated to Commander Charles Tucker III and with subsites for three of his most popular 'ships.

A few print fanzines have also been made, but zine publishing is a less popular activity in Enterprise fandom than for the earlier Star Trek series.
