Jonathan Archer, Badass

I'm just now watching through the run of the Star Trek television series Enterprise and OMG Jonathan Archer is my new favorite captain! Spoilers below the jump....

So far, he's (season 3, episode 23):
  • Created a sentient clone in order to harvest his organs so that his chief engineer can live.

  • Committed overt piracy against an innocent vessel in order to get a warp coil.

  • Ordered Hoshi revived from a coma even though it will probably kill her.

  • And he's done all of these things because he has to save Earth from destruction. You can bet Jean-Luc Picard would have gotten his panties in a twist about all of these moral dilemmas, but not Archer. He knows what has to be done and doesn't let anything get in the way. Archer's the man you call when a problem's gotta be solved.

    If he engages in similar acts of awesomeness after season 3, episode 23, don't tell me in the comments. I want to be surprised.
