** It would have been really good to see Klingons acting differently, they really missed an opportunity there to make Klingon society seem dynamic by having the chronologically earlier Klingons be something new and different, which is a bit odd because they at least made an effort to do that with the Vulcans

*** For that matter, [[Recap/StarTrekS3E2TheEnterpriseIncident the second "face-to-face" contact]] in the original series showed ''the Federation'' as an example of a generally honorable society resorting to black-ops dirty trickery. No species or nation is perfectly consistent about such things all the time.

* At the end of [[Recap/StarTrekEnterpriseS04E06TheAugments "The Augments"]], Malik, the leader of the Augments, is on the bridge of the Klingon Bird of Prey as it's destroyed. We last see him there, badly wounded and barely moving, about two seconds before the ship explodes. But then we cut Soong and Archer aboard the Enterprise, and somehow Malik is now there, in fine condition. He attempts to kill Soong, before Archer shoots him. Even if disregard Malik's miraculous healing (the Augments are know to heal fast, but not ''that'' fast), how the hell did he get aboard the Enterprise? When he's last shown aboard the Bird of Prey, he's nowhere near a transporter, so are we to believe he somehow ran to one and energised it in a couple of seconds? And how come the Enterprise's internal sensors didn't notice a foreign person beaming aboard?

* Now aside from this being a particularly ridiculous and unjustified DelayedRippleEffect (if 900 years isn't enough time for it to ripple, then what is?), why didn't Daniels just wait till they *did* ripple to his time in order to come back to Archer's time and explain things to him. He'd have a lot more information then.
** Ignoring the obvious flaws with that exchange and focusing on the question alone.. perhaps he wasn't willing to risk the ripple reaching and removing them, thus making it impossible to go back?

* ''Storm Front''. On a previous episode, the time traveler urged Archer not to go on a dangerous mission. He said that the Federation wouldn't begin without Archer, and so if he died, history would be badly damaged. Given that, why did he send the Enterprise back in time to fight the Nazi aliens? He couldn't find anyone else in all of history to send?

*** While some dogs do have lactose intolerance, that's not explicitly the case with Porthos. Per "Dear Doctor," dairy gives him gastrointestinal distress.

* About In a Mirror, Darkly. The Terran Empire. How in the hell, did a 90-year old(Counting from Cochrane shotgunning the Vulcan crew) warp-capable civilization just conquered most of the founding members of the Federation? Including Vulcan. Especially Vulcan. In prime-universe, Earth Starfleet just managed to acquired a warp-5 vessel, an astounding achievement for Earth, yet Vulcan have several Warp-7 combat cruiser. By that episode, ISS Enterprise and ISS Avenger was seen combating rebels. Assuming the level of Pre-Federation Earth and Pre-Defiant upgrade Empire have the same level of technological advancement rate, how did, Terran Empire, beat, and conquered, and enslaved, Vulcan, Andorian, and Orion, with a fleet consisted of ship capable of warp 4?

*** In fairness to the writers on this one, human women do have a stronger sense of smell than human men. It's estimated that the female brain has 50% more olfactory cells than the male brain. That still doesn't resolve the issue of why they had to bring up her complaining about the smell though.

*** The plot also relies a comet--the diameter of which is about the length of ''Enterprise''--having having Earth-like gravity.
