I det senaste numret av Star Trek Communicator
så pratar Enterprise-skribenten Mike Sussman om att följa kontinuiteten i serierna och om de val som redan har gjorts om detta.
"We're very conscious of what's come before, and we always try to respect it. We're all fans of the other series, and we enjoy tossing in a future reference, even if only a handful of viewers will get it. I think Phyliss and I have dropped in more references in our scripts than anyone else this year. We mentioned the Malurians, Tellarites, Coridan. We even dropped in Spock's hometown of Shikahr from the animated series."
Detta säger han om Klingonerna som har varit med några gånger i säsong 1:
"The Klingons are a race I imagine we'll revisit. The staff has talked about showing their evolution into the 'smooth headed' and more cutthroat Klingons of the TOS era. I don't know about the smooth foreheads, but I'd be interested in finding out why the Klingons never talked about honor in all the years Kirk dealt with them," Sussman posits. "They really seemed much more interested in glory and treachery than honor in those days. Maybe they found the whole 'honor' thing wasn't working for them. There are so many ways to go with the Klingons. I think the least interesting choice is to show them behaving in exactly the same way as they will in the 24th century, and I think we were a little guilty of that this season."
Han försöker även försvara Ferengierna som var med i slutet på säsongen:
"Meeting the Ferengi was probably one of the more controversial choices this season, but I think we structured the show in a way that preserves Picard's first contact with them. Besides, every DS9 fan knows Earth's real first contact with the Ferengi was in Roswell in 1947!"
