    Exactly. Archer was no racist, he was just pissed.

    Surely that would be redundant?

    Dressing up as an anthropomorphism to have sex when he is already an anthropomorphism.

    I wonder if John ever wore the make up and costume home to role play with his wife?

    Archer had ridges. :)

    For a confirmed badge wearing racist, it's karmic to know that by the end of the story that Archer's humanity had been watered down by filtering the Klingon Augment stabilizing serum and splicing his soul with Surak's Katra, making this bumpkin two thirds less human than anyone else until Spock is born.

    Now that is a very good point.

    Maybe in season 5 we would have seen some big mea culpa scene where Archer repented of his dickishness now that he'd walked many miles in other species boots. Or maybe he would have just hooked up with T'Pol like some people wanted and it would have been the same thing.

    T'Pol was okay for a Frankenstienlike plastic surgery accident.

    My boners can't take women like that seriously.

    T'Pau however made my boner purr like a kitten, and Archer would be a fool to disagree with my tallywhacker.

    I haven't taken a Class in Starship Captain Husbandry, but I can think of a couple characters who were too fabulous to ignore romantically... Like G'Kar for instance, they must have at least been spooning during the sleep cycle while sharing their bathysphere, so why not take it a little further to cope with the boredom and isolation?

    The things we were denied.

    Brave new worlds for Jonathan Archer.. G'Kar was so erudite and smoooooth.. and it's true, Archer was definitely dazzled. Until the big OMG UR NAZIS revelation.

    The hell? Did I somehow make a wrong turn onto the VOY forum? :lol:

    Hey I used to live on the ENT forum. A long time ago it was like a secret cubby on this board. A cubby of fun.

    Cubby or chubby?

    I chose to wait until I knew everything about Enterprise before I dominated this forum.

    Unfortunately when Zero Hour struck, Star Trek was no longer relevant to me.

    Meh.

    They were very nice Nazis.

    Instead of threatening Archer with space lasers, they said "please".

    And then waited patiently for Archer to make the decision he thought best, and even if he ruled against them, it seemed that they would be good with that rather than opening fire and taking prisoners until they got their way..

    It's because the Narn are too civilized for their own good. That's why the Centauri kept fucking them over. It's funny because the Centauri are the ones with all the pomp and pretense and the Narn are much more earthy and unapologetic, more in your face.

    Vissians not Narn.

    Andreas got to play over the top bombastic when they gave him all those Romulan shoulder pads to wear.

    Yes, yes.

    They just had some rather sweet similarities, thanks to Andreas Katsulas.

    I'm too lazy to look up the names of all the species and too stupid to remember them.

    I wonder how many Statues of Archer they built on Vulcan after the Federation was on it's feet?
