Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill, glimpsed in the resetting of the timeline as Daniels' Temporal Cold War ends

Sir Winston S. Churchill was a Human who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during Earth's World War II.

In 2152 Malcolm Reed compared a speech of chancellor Kultarey, a political leader of Gosis' species, to those of Churchill before World War II. (ENT: "The Communicator")

In an alternate timeline, Churchill made a wartime unity speech to improve Allied morale which was broadcast over radio in 1944. Aboard Enterprise, Hoshi Sato picked it up and replayed part of it for T'Pol, Tucker, Reed and Mayweather: "...as to the youth of all the Britons, I say 'You cannot stop.' There is no halting-place at this point. We have now reached a stage in the journey where there can be no pause. We must go on. It must be world anarchy or world order." (ENT: "Storm Front")

Background

Churchill actually delivered this speech in 1943, at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In the alternate timeline, the eastern United States is unavailable to him, and the delayed delivery must take place in another, unoccupied part of the USA – or of the UK.

Alternatively, when Reed says that "Hitler quickly took England", he may be referring to the entire United Kingdom (a common mistake), meaning that Scotland and Wales, too, are under the Nazi's control. (ENT: "Storm Front, Part II")

That all of the UK is lost would certainly fit with the sentences Churchill speaks immediately before the ones we hear Sato play:

"We have learned to fly. What prodigious changes are involved in that new accomplishment! Man has parted company with his trusty friend the horse and has sailed into the azure with the eagles ... Even elderly Parliamentarians like myself are forced to acquire a high degree of mobility." [1]
