Braga, it needs to be famous, is likely one of the co-creators of “Enterprise,” so his trip from “Star Trek” did not final terribly lengthy — “Voyager” led to Could of 2000, “Enterprise” debuted in September of 2001 — however a trip was taken.

“‘Star Trek’ at all times wants recent blood. I left earlier than ‘Enterprise;’ I simply mentioned, ‘I can not do that anymore.’ I keep in mind the place I used to be and what I used to be engaged on and the place I used to be standing and at what time limit after I formally burnt out on ‘Star Trek.’ I made a decision to not do the seventh season of ‘Voyager’ after which I used to be requested to create ‘Enterprise.’ Rick had a very cool concept for it and I mentioned, ‘You understand what? I am going to do that another time.’ One might argue perhaps I should not have. Rick was a very good overlord, however even he wanted recent writers. One might argue perhaps we each ought to have left earlier.”
