    I want a confused Captain Archer and a frustrated Daniels to randomly pop up on Lower Decks. Daniels, "This isn't the Enterprise-J?!" They're accidental arrival interferes with time. Archer and Daniels help correct the timeline, Boimler helps Daniels with his time machine thing. Archer & Daniels blink away, onward to the Ent-J.

    Alternatively, make it a quick gag.

    Make it so!

    Yeah, no offense, but that's kinda stupid, even for Lower Decks.

    I'm just thinking about how Daniels would just poof out of nowhere. Archer, we gotta time travel. Maybe a whole episode is dragging it out. What about as a quick gag?

    I'm more thinking at the end of the episode. Have Archer and Daniels appear in a Cerritos corridor. Daniels says something like "shit, wrong ship again." Archer replies "oh boy."

    Similar to the Q appearance? That works too. Or use Sam Beckett and Al Calavicci the exact same way.

    Ahh.. But don't forget.. Sam couldn't travel into the future, only the past. I'm a nerd for remembering that. LOL

    Seems like the show phased out cold opens. If Archer shows up, it'll be for the long-haul (probably).

    He wasn't supposed to travel before his birth either, but he went back to the American Civil War somehow.

    It was because of his shared DNA with an ancestor who fought in the war.

    Sam leaped into a direct ancestor of his. And according to a cut scene from the series finale (when they were still trying to set up a sixth season), they did indeed say that Sam had leaped into the future.

    My new head canon is that Enterprise was a holodeck novel series loosely based on Captain Archer and his adventures, but sexed up and modernised with BORG ADVENTURES and TIME TRAVEL!

    If they can't get Scott Bakula, but can get Daniel's, just have the two of them appear. Daniels says: "crap, wrong ship again. Come on, Captain Archer, we need to go." Archer starts to say something, but vanishes before he can.

    This idea sounds more like something you’d see on Family Guy.

    Plus, if they were going to get Bakula, why waste his talents on a five second stupid joke?

    If Archer returns without referencing that baby gazelle I'm demanding my money back.
