So if Archer was supposed to be Future Guy, why did Braga wait seven years after the show had been cancelled to reveal this? Was it some super secret that he was under contract not to reveal?
So secret even Braga didn't know about it.

Agreed. I much prefer the explanation put forth in the novels. It literally would make no sense for Archer to be Future Guy.
What was the explanation? I don't have many Enterprise-era novels to go on.

Have you guys seen Brannon Braga's recent Enterprise tweet here:

@BrannonBraga wrote:
For those wondering, Archer as Future Guy was always the idea.Trying to repair a corrupt future by influencing his innocent past self.
Do you think he is serious? Or is he just messing with the fans? Certainly sounds like a valid idea, though, don't you think? Well, it certainly would have been better than nothing.
This sounds like Braga. He is a time-travel nut.

I would have been happy with this had they fleshed it out.

Re: Braga: "Archer was supposed to be Future Guy"

Therefore through an omission, Future Archer killed Trips parents, to ensure young Archer's mission into Xindi space would happen, because the Sphere Builders were a real threat and the Xindi would eventually make a fine ally.

In short: Still a dick.

I like the idea of Archer as Future Guy, but then I'm a sucker for time-loop stories.

Re: Braga: "Archer was supposed to be Future Guy"

Well a number of the producers of season 4 said season 5 would have seen the reveal of future guy as a Romulan, didn't they? So even if this idea was Braga's original intent, I imagine it was abandoned.

Re: Braga: "Archer was supposed to be Future Guy"

You know, I don't hold truck with the people involved in a show coming out with explanations 'after the fact'. What if Brannon Braga came out and claimed that Archer was always supposed to be the tea-lady? Would we hold that as being the gospel?

The same goes for J.K. Rowling claiming, after all of her Harry Potter books had already been published and were out there in the public domain, that certain characters were always meant to be such-and-such. My take is that unless it was explicitly stated within the fiction itself, then frankly it's nothing but hear-say, even if it *is* the original author making those statements.

I don't.

What is he trying to prevent? Messing up the timeline. How is he trying to prevent it? By...messing up the timeline.

Sounds like a solid plot device.

This has been Braga's problem. He loves time travel so much, that he doesn't use it consistently.
