Then reread the part of my post you took the effort to underline. The first two words are... I'd guess... in regards to the OP. The initial "question" wasn't posed into much detail at all, and as I said... the only time Cochrane was treated obsessively was in First Contact.
Since this is the Enterprise forum, the logical assumption is the crew in question would be the from the NX-01. Till the OP comes and clarifies, that's the one I'm going with.

That's your privilege... now assuming you're granting me mine to draw my own thoughts... what's your concern with my post again?

My favorite Cochrane moment is when Archer stabs and kills the Xindi with Cochrane statue in his quarters

"It's just a little hero-worship, Doc."
Besides, I always thought that the reverence any Trek character had for old Zef was a mirror to how Trek fans have idolized Gene Roddenberry. If it weren't for him, there'd be no Trek, be he wasn't the be-all end-all patron saint of adavanced humanity or the sole contributor to what makes Trek great.

As far as Archer bshing that alien in with the Cochrane statue: all I could think of was "Gee, I wish they would sell that statue!"

Re: Did they over do the crews obsession with Cochrane?

I'm talking about the crew of the NX 01.

Dont get me wrong I can see why they all "hero worship" the guy and perhaps "obsess" is the wrong word.

But they seem to talk about him every other episode, and Archer had a statue of him, I mean really WTF?

And how many times did Archer actually point out that statue, other than the one time he used it to kill someone? None, that I can recall.

Steve Neil over at Steve Neil's Garage is selling that statue. He' a friend of Doug Drexler. And Doug let him pull a mold off of the original statue and sell signed copies.
I just wish I had the money for one.

Everyone has stupid historical shit in their ready rooms/offices.

That's great to know! Probably too rich for my blood, but I'll check it out! Thanks!

Now I wish I bought more of those NX-01 caps sold at the Trek Fan club back in the day. My original is faded from the sun, and I obtained a display one years ago, but won't wear it! Unfortunately, Enterprise branded merch is few and far between!

Re: Did they over do the crews obsession with Cochrane?

I'm not into memorabilia but there are 3 things I fancy owning.

The original Cochrane statue from Archer's room (not a newly cast one).

The salt and pepper shakers from Archer's dining table. These went on sale on ebay a few years back but I found out too late.

The chinese dragon in Janeway's ready room.

I have a piece of the shuttle from ST:XI. It's wood That's the only bit of memorabilia I have.

I would probably bid myself into oblivion over any of the Janeway ready room items if they came up though.

Re: Did they over do the crews obsession with Cochrane?

How about one of the incredibly uncomfortable chairs from the VOY conference room?

I'm holding out for that blue cake.
