The cast took some time to grow on me but they all did. I think Archer was a really good captain. I like Phlox a lot- he was annoying when I first met his character but he became well written and even better protrayed by Billingsly. I also agree with Shran- he added a lot of dimension to the Andorians. It would have been great to have him as a regular would there have been a 5th season.
