Well, my favorite character. Good actor too. Anyone watch him on Stargate Atlantis? 'Bit of a different part for him!

I remember that, I think it was early in season 1 Archer explained that.

As for Bones...

Wasn't the Doctor in "The Cage" also referred to as Bones as well?

Post Trip

I always believed that it was because of the close relationship between the Archer and his engineer. But Trip as in triple makes sense.

Doctors in the military used to be called "Sawbones" because they amputed limbs. Hence "Bones".

Well explained. Also the nickname stays in some surgical circles, even today. Kirk allways meant it in an affectionate way towards McCoy.
