Let's say you're right, that Phlox was wrong. Our hero characters don't have to be right for an episode to be good. They don't to be right on the science.
I think when you put up those types of stakes, it helps for the script to be as tight as possible. It helps if the actions we see on screen don't contradict the dialogue spoken by the stories expert.

Archer decides to let billions die on Phlox's word. Yet the determination Phlox comes to doesn't really match the conditions we see on the planet.
