    Default Question about 'Zero Hour'

    In the Enterprise episode 'Zero Hour' near the end when the Xindy weapon is near Earth, where were the Starfleet ships. I mean, wouldnt it be smart to send in some ships to help?

    I wondered about this myself. I found it odd that there weren't any ships. Tactically it made no sense. They probably spent all their money for cgi scenes on the xindi "death star" and hadn't anything left for starfleet ships.

    I was just thinking maybe starfleet had sent all its ships to the outer edge of the sol system. earth didn't know about the xindi propulsion method. they could enter some sort of subspace corridor if memory serves. Maybe the circumvented the fleet and were therefore able to attack earth directly without interference. Just a thought. Haven't seen the episode in quite some time.

    How big was the fleet at the time? 4 or 5 ships? Columbia and handful of smaller ships?

    Enterprise had its budget severely cut in season 3. Most of that budget went to CGI. They actually ended up having to dump their top-of-the-line CGI company and go with one that was kinda.... eh. That's why the CGI looked so crappy in seasons 3 and 4 (ie, the sphere being crushed. That was amateurish. And in season 4 that Romulan ship doing those weird flips and spins. Man. That looked like something out of a Saturday morning cartoon. HAVE YOU PEOPLE NEVER HEARD OF INERTIA??? I know they have inertia dampeners, but they are just that, dampeners, not removers.). Anyway, I suspect that they had to cut down on the amount of CGI as well as the quality. They'd spend a lot on those giant scenes when the Xindi were trying to destroy the Sphere, so maybe they couldn't afford to do any scenes with Starfleet. But we did see some ships in seasons 2 and 4.

    Even if the were on the outskirts of the sol system, starfleet could just call them back

    Considering how long it would take to get ships back to Earth at full impulse and how long the actual battle lasted, they would have missed it.

    My REAL question is how Shran got his ship into the Sol system and just happened to be there to help. Well, it's a rhetorical question, but still...
