I think that of the captains I have seen, I think I like Archer the best now. He dealt with a lot of moral conflicts, especially in the third season. He found himself rationalizing actions to complete his mission. Kirk never seemed to grow and change throughout the series. Nor did Picard.
Watching the episodes so close together, I noticed that the Enterprise NX-01 sustains a LOT more damage than other ships in the other series. It gets shot at in every episode. The series did a good job in conveying that they were on the bleeding edge of technology and exploration. But still, I think there are explosions on the bridge a bit too often.
I was at a Meetup, and someone said that he thought Voyager was terrible. He told me to skip it altogether.
It looks like they have dropped the Temporal Cold War, and a lot of the episodes are part of three-episode arcs. There are some that are not on the Star Trek site. I do not feel like going through the news releases, but it would be nice to know why some episodes are not on the Star Trek site.
