Crewman Daniels

Template:ST Character

In the fictional world of the television series Star Trek: Enterprise, Crewman Daniels is a character who is encountered in several episodes. He is played by Matt Winston.

Daniels (real name unconfirmed) is a footsoldier in the Temporal Cold War and is from the 31st century. He was first seen in Cold Front as a member of Archer's crew. Soon after, he is apparently killed during a Suliban incursion aboard Enterprise. His quarters, which contain several time travel-related devices, was locked down and banned to all crew members except in cases of emergency involving the Temporal Cold War.

Daniels explained little of the nature of his organization or their abilities, to keep Archer from learning too much about the future. His method of transporting others through time was unusally subtle, lacking any obvious visual effects or disorientation. Typically, Archer would walk through a door on the Enterprise and suddenly find himself in an unfamiliar location and time period; Daniels would then appear to talk to him. Daniels pulled a similar feat on a much larger scale in the episode Storm Front: When the Enterprise returned to Earth after the battle with the Xindi, it discovered that it had arrived during World War II. (See below.)

Exactly how Daniels survived being vaporized in Cold Front is never explained, but in the first season finale, Shockwave, Daniels transports Archer to an altered version of the 31st Century in which the United Federation of Planets never existed. Daniels, apparently the only other person besides Archer left on earth, helps the captain return to his own time.

Daniels continued to make occasional appearances, and returned in the third season episode "Carpenter Street", in which he sent Archer and T'Pol back to the year 2004 to investigate why some Xindi Reptilians were on Earth in that time period. He was also seen in the episode "Azati Prime", in which he transported Archer into the future - placing him aboard a future starship called the Enterprise-J, to inform him about the Sphere Builders and their relationship to the Xindi. He later transported Archer to the year 2161, giving him a glimpse of the inauguration ceremony for the United Federation of Planets (later seen for real in "These Are the Voyages..."), warning Archer that allowing the Xindi to change history would result in the destruction of the UFP before it even existed.

In his final (to date) appearance, in the fourth season premiere, Storm Front, he was extremely ill: parts of him were more than a hundred years old while other parts were almost at a fetal stage; apparently the result of some sort of weapon or a failing attempt to time travel due to the ongoing war. He used his last remaining strength to transport Archer and the Enterprise to earth in the year 1944 to stop an alien race from changing history and allowing the Nazis to win World War II. After warning Archer that the Temporal Cold War had exploded into a full-fledged conflict, Daniels apparently died, but with the collapse of the Temporal Cold War, Daniels reappeared and returned Archer to his original timeline. At this point, Archer told Daniels in no uncertain terms he never wanted to see him again; the relative unpopularity of the Temporal Cold War storyline, as well as the cancellation of Star Trek: Enterprise seems to eliminate the possibility of Daniels returning again to "Star Trek" continuity.
