I would have had Reed hook up with Archer's mum if they were going to stay on Earth.
(Seriouslly! Why did Picard run from Lwaxana? In the 80s she was still hot, and to a 60 year old man like Picard she would have been and should have been a stone cold fox.)
The season 1 authors were shite, but could the season 4 authors have tackled a series of Earth centric stories?
Actually, season four running between Earth, Romulus, K'noS, Vulcan and Andor... it was nothing but about keeping the home fires burning.
