“Star Trek: Enterprise,” the latest incarnation of one of the most storied franchises in televised science-fiction history, will end its four-season run in May, broadcaster UPN said Wednesday.
UPN said the last episode would air Friday, May 13. The series generated 98 episodes over its run, although it struggled in the ratings.
The original 1960s “Star Trek” series gave rise to generations of fans who eagerly took in movies, books, and TV spinoffs like “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and “Star Trek: Voyager.”
“Star Trek: Enterprise” was positioned as a prequel to the original “Star Trek.” It starred Scott Bakula and premiered in September 2001.
