Well I mind "cave man" captains. I mind them very much.
He got smarter as he went along though.
He was like a Jehovah's Witness in the first two seasons. I felt sorry for the poor aliens he hailed. Especially the one who was like, "I'm carrying cargo. It's my job."
watching enterprise with a family member and I can almost buy the future guy idea. Mainly when he went to the future and got stuck and the suliban cant contact him. and I can see it being him trying to fix mistakes that were made.. maybe enterprise was destroyed by the reactor explosion in that one episode and he was the only survivor?
Or to save Trip?
Braga be smoking some good stuffd
I guess Braga is bored, he's in-between canceled series right now.
So secret even Braga didn't know about it.

What was the explanation? I don't have many Enterprise-era novels to go on.
This sounds like Braga. He is a time-travel nut.
I would have been happy with this had they fleshed it out.
And I still like the idea of Archer being 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.
And I hate the idea, but my future self loves it.
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.
Yeah, this wins.
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.
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.
