Phlox was a Denobulan physician who served as chief medical officer during the historic voyages of the Enterprise (NX-01) under Captain Jonathan Archer from the years 2151 to 2161.

Like most Denobulan males, he had three wives, who in turn each had three husbands. Two of his 'first' wives were Xesophia, who sadly died in a drowning accident in 2124, and Endora, whilst a later wife, Feezal, once visited him aboard Enterprise. ENT episodes: "Dear Doctor", "Stigma", "Zero Hour", ENT short story: "Cabin E-14")

Phlox began his career as a doctor in 2114. (ENT episode: "Damage") He also served as chairman of immunology at his alma mater. Phlox was considered honorable. ({{ccg|ST|Phlox}})

Phlox's alma mater's name was not mentioned.



In February of 2152 Phlox was assigned to decontaminate the quarters of Crewman Daniels, who had been revealed to be a time-traveler from the 31st century. While in Daniels quarters, Phlox discovered a device that allowed him travel through time at will and decided to use the device to rescue his wife Xesophia before the accident.

The device didn't work as Phlox hoped, and he was only able to travel back ten months, shortly after Enterprise's launch. With Daniel's assistance, Phlox was able to use the device to return to the proper time, but not before glimpsing a possible future in which Enterprise was under attack by Nausicaan pirates. ENT short story: "Cabin E-14")

Continuing Influence

By the mid-23rd century, the Phlox Prize for Medicine had been named in his honor. Dr. Othello Black received it 2241. (TOS comic: "Year Four, Issue 1")

After the Albino had bombed the peace conference on Korvat in 2291, Doctor Christine Chapel studied material written by Phlox to better understand the Albino and his condition.(TLE novel: Forged in Fire)

In the year 2375 Phlox's notes on a malady known as Vulcans scourge were crucial to Doctors Julian Bashir and Beverly Crusher on Federation starbase Deep Space 9 in their efforts in finding a cure for a virus created by the Dominion that targeted Vulcans. (ST short story: "Mirror Eyes")

By the year 2376, a medical research facility named the Phlox Institute had been named in his honor. Katherine Pulaski served at the Phlox Institute until at least 2379. (SCE eBook: Progress; TNG novel: A Time for War, A Time for Peace)

Alternate Versions

In one alternate timeline, Phlox left the Enterprise in 2161, following the Isolationist Party's takeover of the Parliament of United Earth. He returned to his family on Denobula, including his great-grandson, Vleb. (Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)
