Sci Fi has announced a premiere date for “Star Trek: Enterprise”, the fifth series in the Star Trek franchise which aired on the UPN network from 2001 to 2005, for January 8, 2007.
The series will run in four-hour blocks from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM ET every Monday.

It spent one year in weekend syndication where it averaged a 1.4 household rating through 26 original episodes (with a low of 1.2 and a high of 1.7) selected mainly from the fourth season but also including selected episodes from other seasons.
