Re: "Kirk, You Do This, You'll Never Sit in the Captain's Chair Again.
I'd agree except that I'm still baffled by Archer's behavior during ANiS and the remarkably awful exchange in "Fallen Hero" where Archer seems shocked that, after dropping out of warp (or slowing down, whichever) it will now take them longer to reach their destination.
I think he was better written over time, but I could say the same about the show in general. And even then...
I wouldn't call him a buffoon, I just think he had some less than stellar moments which "impressed" me more than I recall being impressed by the other captains.
It was the best of Trek, it was the worst of Trek...
