Re: Anyone here who HATES "in the pale moonlight"
Whenever I think of good Trek vs. bad Trek, I always compare this episode to Enterprise's "Dear, Doctor". Where as Sisko ends this story with self-guilt and no respect for what he's done, Archer is openly confident in his decision to let a whole species die out and earns respect from his crew.
We have no idea what Archer's crew though beyond Phlox. We don't even get T'Pol's thoughts on withholding the cure.
