Enterprise being chronologically the earliest means that in the first two seasons they get to do a lot of stuff for the first time.

Tactical officer Malcolm Reed is grumpy a lot, I guess because they figure he has to be Worf, but he's a short not-very-threatening British guy who just goes around trying to invent impractical ways to make the ship like 0.3% better in combat. He comes up with a tactical alert system (a clear precursor to TNG's "red alert") which nobody likes until it saves the ship in an unlikely scenario, so it becomes a standard thing and they never mention it again.

They don't know what to call it, so Trip suggests "Reed Alert". REED ALERT

After 9/11, Enterprise pivoted to a plot about chasing down space terrorists who killed civilians on American soil, and Archer does way more interrogation and punching.

Yeah "after 9/11" changed a lot of things

The Xindi arc/season was the highest rated season of ENT's four seasons, and in my opinion it had some good episodes still when it wasn't being about how being a nice person is bad and actually shooting people is the right thing to do.

ENT probably IS, overall, the weakest "old" Trek, but it still manages to be Trek and not fucking entirely about lasers and killing and someone staring into the camera and saying the words "faith", "family", and "love" while saccharine music plays.

THAT'S THE POWER OF -SCIENCE-

This video posits that nearly everything bad about Star Trek from mid-TNG onward was actually producer Rick Berman's fault, and everything good was achieved in spite of him.
