Captain Jonathan Archer
Captain Jonathan Archer was Captain of the first full-fledged Starfleet Starship the Enterprise
NX-01. As Captain, he was responsible for
greatly expanding Earth’s presence in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants and making
First Contact with more than a dozen species, among
them the Klingons and Xindi.
Born in the 2110s to
Henry Archer, the renowned warp scientist. Despite being born in upstate New York, Archer spent
his entire life in San Francisco. From an early age he wanted to join Starfleet; as a child he often
built model spaceships with his father.
As a commander, Archer
was one of four test pilots in the NX Program and was ultimately selected as the
captain of Enterprise.
In March 2152, after it
appeared his ship's mission was over because of the destruction of the mining
colony on Paraagan II, Archer was transported to April 9, 2151 by Crewman Daniels, who
revealed the Suliban were responsible for what had happened.
Returning to 2152,
Archer used knowledge given to him by Daniels to board a Suliban stealth-cruiser
and prove what they had done. As a result, Silik
demanded Archer, and to save him Daniels transported him to the 31st Century,
causing a major disruption in the timeline that
apparently destroyed Earth. Archer and Daniels were able to repair the timeline,
but Archer managed to learn that he was vital to the
creation of a "United Federation of Planets" in the future:
"Shockwave, Parts I and II")
In late 2152, Archer was captured by the Klingons after assisting Rha'daran rebels. Put on trial on
Narenda III, he
was sentenced to labour in the dilithium mines on Rura Penthe, but
managed to escape. (ENT "Judgment")
He was hunted by the Klingons for this offence, at first through bounty hunters like
"Bounty") and then directly by
Duras. (ENT:"The Expanse") In
September 2153 Archer was transformed into a Loque'eque. Even
after being cured by Phlox, Archer continued to suffer from a
residual infection and strange dreams of the Loque'eque city.
