Although I doubt very much the new film will do so, it would be nice to hear some hints that Archer and his Enterprise NX-01 played an important part in that conflict. Maybe a Starfleet Academy question that we overhear Chekov getting wrong...
"Cadet Chekov: Who was the Captain of the first warp 5 vessel, which after being involved in the Xindi Crisis, lead a vanguard of Earth ships during the Romulan War?"
"Tiberius Chase, M'am."
"That is incorrect. Anyone else?"
"Jonathan Archer. He went on to become Federation President."
"Bonus point, Cadet Galliulin."
(Chekov turns his classmate) "I'd have gotten that, Irini. I mean, he was Russian afterall..."
