Re: NEW ONGOING STAR TREK SERIES FROM IDW!!!
And according to Mem Alpha.
FWIW, here's what Mike Sussman himself had to say, when I brought the subject up in the Enterprise forum last year:
As the author of the Archer bio, I can confirm that -- at least in the prime timeline -- Archer clung to life just long enough to personally witness the launch of the NCC-1701 in 2245, and died peacefully the next day. In the alternate timeline, he held on an extra thirteen years in order to see the maiden flight of the Enterprise-JJ in 2258 -- after which he promptly dropped dead.
