Still, Enterprise is a prequel, not a reboot.
If it had been a reboot, all the events of the previous series could
have been simply ignored and for example they wouldn't have bothered to
give an explanation to the change of look of the Klingons between TOS
and TNG. And it's just an example, Enterprise has considerably
consolidated the Star Trek worldbuilding (the episode with the Borgs,
that tell what happened to them after "First contact", the episode with
the Defiant that links to TOS "The Tholian Web", etc...)

Sure, for instance we had never seen before in Star Trek sexy girls that
made the male audience crazy...

I'd like to see a (supposed) citation in context, not interpreted.
During the last years of Voyager and during all Enterprise, Berman has
been constantly accused of being a temple guardian and denying
substantive developments in Star Trek. He resisted as much as he could
the studio's demands to make the show more mainstream.
I'm still waiting for a solid list, not just about a song or a title.
