Ah, this is why.
Forget my previous question.
When watching, I focused more on Phlox's character and his inner thoughts because prior to that, you don't know much about him at all...
Yeah, this episode just ruined Phlox for me as a character. Not only condemning an entire species to death, but calling it the moral and ethical choice?
To be completely fair to Phlox...it was Archer's decision in the end whether or not to give the people the cure. Phlox did admit to Archer he had a cure and Archer decided to side with Phlox and not give it to them.
In the end, it was Archer's choice.
I suppose though, you know the EMH would have denied the captain's orders and given those people the cure even if Janeway said NO NO. Haha. He was really programmed with the "must do no harm" subroutine.
He wouldn't even separate Tuvix!
