So since this is tagged as a spoiler thread, let's talk about this time travel stuff a bit.
In the scene where the guy pulled archer off enterprise and back to his apartment, and the guy says that that archer is still there but the apartment archer is not there, or something like that. That seems wrong to my feeble mind. Let me explain my "Oh-so-Lame Time Travel Theory".
In my head, I see a given timeline as a list of interconnected objectects, with each instant of time being a new object. Each object get a copy of things that exist at that instant in that timeline. Therefore, when archer was removed from Enterprise, he should have been physically gone from that timeline as far as the other inhabitant of that timeline are concerned. Also, he should have seen himself in his apartment because he was introduce to that object as it was when it was originally created.
Geez, I'm lame.
 Also, in the final scene where the guy says, "I can't take you back, our technology is gone". It seems to me that they could just decide to begin making it anew and they would have it in that instant because at some future instant someone could travel back and insert the technology.
This is the "Bill & Ted's" theory of time travel. When they are trying to bust out (in??) of the jail, they start saying stuff like, hey later on, steal the key, travel back to yesterday, and hide it behind this plant. Then they walk over and grab the key which they will put there later...
The whole crazy idea of time travel is just dumb. It will never happen, it couldn't possibly, because we would already have wackos coming back to now upsetting everything.
