I heard Archer often Derided for his anti Vulcan Bigotry.
A point though?
to tell a story of a charachter overcoming prejudces that they once subscribed to, you need them to be prejudiced in the first place.
"Oh well I like the vulcans and am so glad their always holding back their info Im sure their doing it for a valid reason!"
Would have made for poor Drama
an idea how this could have been better handled/
