They are described as being:
- 5x as strong as humans
- 2x as intelligent as humans
- 2x as long lived as humans
- Quicker (better reflexes) than humans
This sounds great. I'd feel honored to have them overthrow my civilization and rein in a new age. You'd expect them to be stronger than Vulcans, marginally more intelligent, and almost equally long lived. Truly superhuman.
Except... they keep failing so hard. I don't get it.
I understand how in-fighting could give the dumb, weak, but well-armed basic human beings a chance to win a war against them.
What I don't understand is how people like Capt. Archer and Capt. Kirk repeatedly win fights with them (both captains), knock them unconscious with a back of the hand slap (Archer), and outsmart them (both).
Is it a simple case of 'the good guys always win' or is there some more reasonable explanation?
