As for why Archer became captain? Honestly I always attributed that to old fashioned nepotism, being his father designed the engine.
If that's true, then shouldn't he have also been chosen to pilot the warp 2 flight as well instead of Robinson? When giving him the bad news, Forrest clearly acknowledges Archer's personal investment in the warp program, but it didn't seem to influence his final decision.
