Series: Enterprise - Season Three Episode: “Doctor’s Orders” Trek Installment # 66 Grade: B Viewing Date: November 13, 2009 Another focus on Phlox and thank goodness for it. I have a great affection for Phlox and I find him to be one of the most interesting characters on the show. I have enjoyed this episode quite a bit, though having T’Pol hanging around was a distraction. Why was it that Phlox was getting a lesson about the warp core when T’Pol, the science officer with some experience, would be the more logical choice? T’Pol’s emotions are making her forgetful? Oh holy crap, she wasn’t real. Nice twist. The development of Phlox was nicely done and appreciated by this Denobulan fan. I enjoyed the first ten-fifteen minutes more than anything. Running around the ship with Porthos; strutting around naked; watching movies . . . it reminds of the first few nights my parents would leave me alone for a while. It was like “wooo free reign! I can go to the bathroom with the door open!” Okay, well, maybe it wasn’t quite like that . . . But I digress. Phlox is one of the best alien individuals I’ve seen in that he offers something new to Star Trek that hasn’t been dealt with before. His species need for companionship and the inclination to hallucinate are nicely foreign. Dealing with Phlox brings out some great Trek.
