Having a not so good day (mood-wise) I decided to do some more research and ended up watching the three parter with the Augments in the Archer Enterprise series.

o_O 0_o Hmm, was not impressed at all. I get it that not everyone in a tv show can be smart or act smart but if you give me villains as antagonists and tell me several times how much smarther they are supposed to be and then show me that they are mostly idiots with some minor hacking skills - I am disappointed.

Being able to play around with computer is not all there is to a superior mind, these Augments could hardly think for themselves. So depressing. Especially after having seen how brilliant and awesome you can write a super smart villain ...

Most pathetic part was the lead idiot trashing Khan for taking his crew on the Botany Bay and then in the end murdering like his crew and all the embryos they stole.

I know it is hard to write a character smarter than yourself - but please at least try. If I can do it, surely a paid writer can do a better job.

Oh, this is a pet peeve of mine. Super intelligent characters should NOT behave like they are stupider than the regular characters. And it happens ALL THE TIME. Arg.
