This image fits perfectly with my theory about Johnathon Archer! Archer is an average-joe Starfleet officer in Picard/Sisko/Janeway's time, who likes to play historically inaccurate holo-programs, featuring himself as the hero. His favorite program, which he wrote himself, is a laughably inaccurate tale known as "Enterprise." Here, Archer casts himself as the captain of the first Federation starship ever to explore space...and goes on to battle the Borg, the Romulans, the Ferengi, holodeck-malfunctions (yes, holodecks inside a holodeck!) and a dozen other races and obstacles that the real Starfleet wouldn't run into for many more generations. After four years of writing a story arch off the top of his head, Archer's fantasy came to an abrupt end, when he was pulled from the ship he was serving on and sent to counseling sessions with Deanna Troi, to curb his holodeck addiction.

I take your word for it.

Oddly enough i found one of my pics of Archer  ( I  was searching google images for trek uniforms)  on a Scott Bakula forum....seriously, there is a forum dedicated to him

Oh I believe it. Scott Bakula was a known actor before "Enterprise," and I know a few people who watched that abomination of a prequel mainly for him. I personally hated him as Archer, but he might be a perfectly fine actor in other roles, I don't know. I try not to hate any of the actors (yes, even Robert Beltran; his hatred of "Star Trek" and raunchy humor are hilarious, not a crime). It's just the character of Archer that I hate.

I thought he was a bad choice for the part at first but he as decent enough.Like you say i dont dislike any actor but certain characters were awful.

Wesley and Geordie in TNG were woeful
Janeway in voyager
Hoshi in enterprise
I might be biased as i love ds9, but that show had the best characters with depth

I liked Geordie and Janeway.

But yes, DS9 definitely had the best characters. The "Voyager" writers stumbled a bit on what to do with certain characters in certain seasons; and TNG writers seemed to have a phobia of giving their characters flaws of any kind.
