Re: First time watching Enterprise!
In the pilot Archer was openly hostile and insulting to Vulcan diplomats and threatened to knock one on her a$$ so him inviting the Vulcan captain over for a meal instead of immediately telling him to p!$$ off was friendly and diplomatic. It was just unfortunate that that particular Vulcan captain seemed to be as loath of humans as Archer is of Vulcans.
Friendly and diplomatic for him maybe. Archer really was a terrible choice to represent humanity in deep space making first contact for Earth.
