Moi Drodzy... to będzie temat-wyzwanie. Dowodzić głupoty/niekompetencji Archera jest bardzo łatwo, ale przecież wiemy, że historia wszechświata ST zapamiętała go zupełnie inaczej, jako postać ze wszech miar wybitną (co pokazuje m.in. ten fragmencik "Zero Hour"):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJgTk0pDndQ
Transkrypcja:Archer: I don't have time for this.
Daniels: It'll only take a minute. You see the fellow in the blue jacket, near the left hand of the dais? That's you, a little more than seven years from now. You and the others are about to make history. Do you remember I told you about a Federation?
Archer: What about it?
Daniels: I work with some people who are going to be pretty angry with me for telling you this, but you're going to be an integral part of forming that Federation. You're down there, right now, with Vulcans, Andorians and Tellarites, getting ready to sign the Charter. The membership is going to grow. Dozen, eventually hundreds of species. A United Federation of Planets.
Archer: I have a team preparing to board the weapon. I've got other things to think about right now.
Daniels: Let Reed or one of the others go to the control platform.
Archer: What are you talking about?
Daniels: It's too great a risk. If you're killed, none of this will happen. At least, not the way it's supposed to happen.
Archer: Then it'll happen some other way. Who's to say whether it'll be better or worse?
Daniels: It's essential you be a part of this.
Archer: Where are we? What planet?
Archer: Seems to me it's just as essential that Earth be around for this too.
Daniels: Lieutenant Reed can work with Sato. (applause in background) They are not crucial to the future of mankind. You are.
Archer: My mission is to save Earth, not your Federation.
Daniels: You can't ignore your place in history.
A zatem i my nie ignorujmy jego miejsca w historii i poszukajmy - choć to trudne - dowodów archerowej wybitności.
