Re: Archer's decision to strand civilians in Delphic Expanse
I pretty much took it as him sacrificing his own conscience for all of Earth. It wasn't right and he knew it wasn't right but Archer was essentially taking one for the team, (being the bad guy) in order to drive on with the mission. The Xindi mission was one that would change him for the rest of his life.
Searching for something, a million miles and a ways to go.
