** Despite the (not-unjustified) hate surrounding the Temporal Cold War arc, Silik was generally agreed to be an effective villain. [[TheScrappy His unnamed boss, on the other hand...]]

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Shran--so much so that he would have joined the ship's crew in the planned season 5 as a regular character. His ambiguous status as ally/rival was played with flair by series veteran Jeffery Combs.

* EsotericHappyEnding: In "Dear Doctor", Archer and Phlox decide not to give the Valakians and Menk a cure to their illness, likely dooming both races to extinction, and this decision helps Phlox gain new respect for Archer? This can be blamed on ExecutiveMeddling; the episode was supposed to end with Archer and Phlox at odds with each other (Archer wanting the cure, Phlox opposing it), but the network didn't want any disagreements between them. So what should have ended up as a debate on the morality of intervention on the fate of another species with heavy consequences, turns into everyone deciding unequivocally that of course it's right to doom millions to die based on some warped Darwinistic ideal of naturalist succession.

** "Bound". The idea behind it was noble, but it did it in a half-baked manner. Offering a clichéd appropriation of third-wave feminism suggesting that the Orion Slave Girls are “empowered” by their sexuality and are the ones calling the shots. (The sex slaver is a brain-dead zombie... Didn't we already do this story in "Angel One"?) Which feels like an excuse to justify the cheesecake scenes and lingering {{male gaze}} that runs through the episode.\\\
Trivia: ''Star Trek'' had a deleted scene where Kirk mixes up another Orion with Galia, which seems like the film calling Kirk out on treating alien space babes as interchangeable.

** Also, someone explain the logic of Khan’s DNA being desirous to a Klingon. If anything, Section 31 should be the ones shooting up ''their'' agents with ''Klingon'' DNA. (''Didn’t that massive three-part homage to ''[=WOK=]'' teach you anything? Khan is supercool!)

** To the point where even though the technology won't be invented in the Federation for another two centuries, the ''fifth'' episode featured an alien holodeck, while the ''eighth'' episode has the Replic- sorry, [[SerialNumbersFiledOff Protein Resequencer]], capable of turning human faeces into a pair of boots. Protein synthesisers look more than little bit like food replicators. (Kirk had to get his sandwiches from a vending machine.)

** Could go for many characters, but Travis Mayweather in particular stands out. (''That is patently false! In the series finale he got a name tag'')\\\
Born and raised on a space freighter, he had the most practical space experience of the entire crew, despite his relative youth and low rank in Starfleet. The writers never seemed to grasp the inherent hooks of this however, and the poor ensign had more or less nothing significant to do during the show's entire run. Indeed, this even led to an unintentional subplot in the second series, where it seems that every other episode Travis was injured and sent to sickbay, simply to give him a reason to appear in the episode.
