If you skipped it how do you know you didn't like it?
'Cause it sounded as boring as a B&B-crafted grocery shopping list?

Also, lots of Hoshi. Lots and lots. So you did miss something.
Please. The Hosh is duller than Harry Kim!

What Hayes showing up does bring about is Malcolm's insecurities. He has an "us vs. them" mentality as soon as the guy shows up.
Alas, the show utterly failed to provide any context for the MACOs, and how they fit into Starfleet-era society. And then after the Xindi crisis, they stick around and appear in a few random S4 eps because, hey, the uniforms are still there on the rack, might as well use 'em.

Hayes never gets much character work, but you look at him and believe he could be a tough fighter. Malcolm, on the other hand, looks and acts like he belongs in a tweed coat teaching literature to high schoolers. I've got nothing against Keating, and have no objection to him handling the weapons console, but as an away team security leader, he's about as menacing as Porthos.
