That's my point. If they planned on this, then at the opening of each episode, they could do:
13.4 lightyears From Earth
65 days since Drydock
Or something like that.
A handful of episodes could be story arcs as NX-01 tries to figure out how to fix/settle/explore etc. I mean this is before any human could read and learn from previous examples of the same situation. This is where Archer would make his own mistakes, create rules, fix mistakes etc.
