In Galileo 7, he throws a spear or two in the direction of those big brutes. Whether he hit anyone or not is immaterial, he intended to harm or kill them.
I don't agree. Earlier, he specifically ordered "We'll fire to frighten... not to kill."

Throwing the spear was presumably more along the lines of covering fire, with the goal of getting them to duck rather than actually hitting them. I mean, seriously, those spears were huge, built for giants. Even with Vulcan strength, he wouldn't have been able to put a lot of force into the throw, and I don't think he was trying very hard to aim.
