Harriman by a long-shot. His sheer incompetence had to be seen to be believed! As for Archer, there weren't any starship captains before him so it's not like there were any examples for what a starship captain was supposed to be like. Did Archer make mistakes along the way? You better believe it! However, I'm going to cut him some slack because he gave it his all. When it came down to the eleventh hour, Archer proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he was fit to be Earth's first starship captain.
