3 Warp specialist Henry Archer enjoys a day at the beach with his son Jonathan, teaching him to fly a remote controlled model spacecraft.

6 Captain Archer requests a personal evaluation from the former commanding officers of the candidates he is reviewing for the position of helm officer.

The letter wins Mayweather the post.6
