This. Except for the getting up part.
Yep, this is ridiculous. Claim for years that there was no solid answer, a very vague one at best, and then all of the sudden, when no one even cares anymore claim to finally reveal the plan that you had all along?
Christopher gave us the identity of Future Guy. Braga needs to go away and leave us alone.
Braga's full of it. Here's the real Future Guy:
He already did that when he wrote TATV.
I love all the denial there is about the concept. Given Braga's history of dud bombshells in the Trekverse, I actually could believe they could stoop to this and that they thought it was an awesome idea.
It might have been an awesome idea if they had written Future Guy with that in mind. Archer is so pedestrian though that I think this would have to be Archer having lived an extra few hundred years in some very different environment to make him into that person.
Unless you think Archer could end up like Captain Braxton after going mad because Porthos is murdered?
I believe this. ^
Frankly, this is inspired - the only reveal that would have been at all interesting or surprising.
It would fit Brannon's love of mindf#ck stories.
You mean his love of terrible mindf#ck stories.
I never said they were good.
Not better than no TCW at all, it ain't.
Captain Robau was future guy..................and he didn't need a time machine.
Funny~ i always thought 'future guy' was a woman.
From watching the series- not because of casting or novels...
old Archer is interesting, but what if it was young Archer from the pilot, annoyed by how his future turned out.
Archer was supposed to die in season one, so there can't have been an old Archer until after he saved himself even though he didn't exist enough to save himself.
When was Archer supposed to die in Season One? Who was going to be the Captain?
It should have been Erika. ERIKA.
Captain T'Po'ls Boobs. The pips would be very suggestively placed.
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?
Cold Front s01e11.
According to Daniels, Enterprise was supposed to explode in a an accident in the episode and every one dies. Enterprise plays no part in forging the federation in the original timeline and Archer plays no part in forging the Federation in the original time line either.
Future guy positions the Silik, leader of the Xindi, to stop the first warp 5 engine from blowing up after it reacted badly to a local stellar anomaly spoofing.
Future Guy saved Archer.
This pissed off Daniels.
After Daniels got his end around and stopped the Xindi threat from continuing to save Enterprise from its predetermined expiration which was fucking up Captain Daniel's timeline, he would have rolled back time and destroyed Enterprise... Unfortunately Silik, or the crazy events of that day, topped Daniels before he could save the future from this impossible meddling kicking his 31st century homeland off kilter.
Archer was so stupid that he decided to help Daniels rather than Silik because he was massively pig ignorant about who his friends were and who his enemies were not.
(The later appearances of Daniels, was a different guy who came from a timeline where Enterprise was not done blown up.)
I suppose it's possible that old Archer could exist as a potential life form in the future if time was forced upside down inside temporal forcefields that are resistant to changes in the timeline, where he became more real after he shielded himself and then became furiously aware as to how nearly impossible his existence was given the facts of the most dominating histories running up and down the universe and Old Archer would have had no choice but to open a front in the temporal cold war to ensure his existence!
