Stylised Future

On the strangeness of leaving science fiction

Picture I believe that we've come out of the realm of science fiction a little bit with this new series. Because Enterprise is taking place in the 22nd century, our characters are much more contemporary, and I think they're much more accessible to the audience. There are characters who wear baseball caps and characters who wear jeans and sneakers when they're off duty. The characters talk a little bit more like we talk and not like, Riker or Picard might talk. They are in a sort of stylised future.

In a way, what we've done in creating this new series is come a quarter of the way back to doing a good cop show, or something like that, on the streets of Philadelphia.
