Phlox is challenged to find a cure for a disease which is affecting millions on the Valakian homeworld. He soon realises that a cure will impact on the planet’s future dramatically and Phlox faces a moral dilemma…

The Trekzone Review

Moral dilemma this week on Enterprise. Two humanoid species have evolved on a planet, the Valakians and the Mink. For the past few years the Valakians have been dying from a disease they can’t cure.

Enterprise responds to a call for help from a Valakian astronaut they rescued… Phlox soon discovers that the disease is not viral, but rather natural selection. Phlox’s scene with Archer in the mess hall sums up this episode and my feeling very well – seems the Prime Directive is a very well founded principle that may have it’s roots here.

Archer also finally sees the Vulcan’s reluctance to share technology as one that is well founded.
