So, I was watching "The Expanse" a few days ago (background research on the MACOs), and couldn't help but wonder some things.
As they fly to Vulcan (the abortive trip to drop off T'Pol), the Klingons swoop in and attack. Archer, for whatever reason, fires his brand spanking new torps at the lowest setting. Then increases and fires, then cranks it up to 50% finally for a third volley. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but seems like a total waste of ammunition, and putting the crew needlessly in danger. In fact, its putting humanity in danger. He's trying to pull his punches with the Klingons, while he's setting out on a mission to save humanity from the Xindi. What happens if Enterprise is destroyed by Duras? Starfleet has no other warp 5 ships at that point, and the smaller, slower ones wouldn't even be able to make the trip before it was over. He tells Trip they'll do what they have to, and even steals parts from an innocent ship, to complete their mission, but not apparently, destroy an enemy vessel thats attacking without provocation.
Also, I wonder what the torpedo complement of an NX class is, and if they can somehow replenish torps they've used. Because, Archer seems not to worry very much about wasting ammo.
They say that in the Army,

They look like Phyllis Diller,
and walk like Frankenstein.
