What were they thinking with that sport for the Captain? Basketball would've worked better and had more mainstream respect. Water polo is just a little too unheard of, and hard for me to relate to. I guess a combination of throwing a ball and drowning at the same time, is really going to take off next century.
Baseball? Nah, they should have made him a WWE fan, raving to Trip about a cage match between a Gorn and a Nausicaan, and how they used to be best friends until the Gorn suddenly turned againt the Nausicaan and stole his girlfriend during a tag team match.
It would lay the groundwork for Archer's shocking reveal as Future Guy later on.
