It certainly has been a long road for Scott Bakula, star of the UPN series “Star Trek: Enterprise.”
Speaking on “The Wayne Brady Show” for the second time this season, Bakula (Capt. Jonthan Archer) revealed the possible endings for the third season, which is nearing its climax. And guess what? There’s more than one.
“Well, there are all these wonderful rumors out there,” Bakula said on the show. “I think we shot three endings. One of them, we get back to Earth. One of them, we don’t get back to Earth. And one of them, the ship gets back to Earth and I’m not alive.”
Brady “oohed” and “ahhed” at the news before Bakula offered jokingly, “And the other one is something about I wake up and I’m on a couch at William Shatner’s house. Talking to him … I’m not kidding.”
Brady then went on to ask about the USA Today “Save Our Show” poll, in which “Enterprise” took 70 percent of the vote to stay on the air.
“You know, the fans, especially this year — I think we’ve had a tremendous third season — and everybody loves the show,” Bakula said. “In fact, we were off for, I think, six weeks, and we came back on with an original program, and we were short of the wrestling on our network — we were the No. 1 show, again, after six weeks of being gone. So, the fans are so loyal, and so supportive. And, again, whether that poll will help swing any of the minds that are trying to decide … But, we are still in limbo; and we don’t know what’s going to happen.”
Bakula joked that both he and Brady (who’s show will not be returning next season) could end up “working at McDonald’s” together.
The “Enterprise” season finale, “Zero Hour,” airs on May 26 on UPN. The show airs regularly Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET.
