Just watching "The Communicator" where Reed leaves his communicator on the surface of a pre-warp planet and has to go back to get it and it's got me thinking. A lot of the story is based around the fact that this is a planet on the brink of war and Archer not wanting to contaminate the culture further by admitting they are aliens. Now that's fine for most planets admittedly but this one in particular they instead pretend to be spies for the neighbouring state, basically stoking the fires and drawing the planet closer to war. That seems a lot worse than admitting they were aliens! EDIT: Lol typical, they mentioned it at the end. I knew it would backfire making this thread while still watching the episode but I did it anyway.
