The episode was subdued, quiet and reflective, and, whether they made the wrong judgment calls or not, the characters thought deeply about the decisions they wound up making.
Except that we didn't really see them think deeply about it. One minute Archer was in favour of giving them the cure and then in the next scene he says, "Oh i slept on it and decided you were right and let's not give them the cure" - A little scene showing
Archer talking to someone else and/or thinking about his decision changing might have improved the episode more instead of the rapid 180 degree turnaround we got.
For the Uniform takes the cake for me - ugh "let's just use WMD for petty revenge and then laugh about it on the bridge afterwards" but I guess because they got lucky and nobody actually died Starfleet gave them a free pass.
