Re: ENT S3: Damage

The episode wasn't endorsing Archer's stealing (it wasn't frowning upon it either). The Xindi slaughtered 7 million people on the basis of deliberately false prophecies about their fate, and aside from Degra, no Xindi were exactly wringing their hands over it (none that we were shown, anyway; and remember, that slaughter was merely a test run). Aliens, it seems, like humans, have a preference for the survival of their own race over that of others. Is this inherently immoral? It's hard to say, but all of us here are only having this conversation because humans, including fictional Starfleet captains, do indeed act this way. No matter what Roddenberry's auto-revisionism said.
