Read the DTI novel "Watching the Clock". It explains everything.

It's answered in the novel Department of Temporal Investigations: Watching the Clock. Spoilerific click!

More recently Brannon Baga has started claiming that he was supposed to be a future version of Archer, but I'm pretty sure he's just attention whoring because that makes less than no sense. Click!

How can it be an older version of Acher when the future guy was from the 28th century that would make Acher over 600 years old.Oh and by the way i found a Fan fiction on how Enterprise and the Cold war should have been.And it would have made enterprise much better here is the link to it.

1. No; backpedaling aside, at the time neither Berman nor Braga knew who he was. There was some mention after the show ended that he "might have been a Romulan," but like the Archer BS, that was just spoken after the fact as a non sequitor.

2. This should have been posted in the Enterprise forum.

He was a plot device, nothing more.

I liked the idea that Archer was future guy. It would have been really interesting to see how he became the bad guy trying to mess with history.

Archer kinda makes sense since Future guy disappears when Archer is taken out of his own timeline in Shockwave. In Shockwave part II it kinda foreshadows it also.

He was the hero of the show, responsible for making sure the Enterprise and Archer were safe, intact, and in a position to take advantage of the historical opportunities as they occurred.

Note how stranding a Klingon in Oklahoma first made Archer's Enterprise launch in circumstances which forced humans and Vulcans to work together --- and gave Archer a favor the Klingons had to return to him, saving him from execution two years later. Note how Future Guy's Suliban clients saved the Enterprise from blowing up in that cosmic space storm. Or how setting off the catastrophe on that planet with the explosive atmosphere forced, ultimately, the Vulcans to swallow their reservations and endorse NX-01's mission. Consider the way Future Guy's clients explain the Xindi plot to destroy Earth just as it starts. Heck, note that when Archer gets plucked out of Suliban/Future Guy's hold in Shockwave by that idiot Daniels, it destroys the whole timeline.
