Overview

He is a member of the Denobulan race and was on Earth as part of the Interspecies Medical Exchange when called to service on Enterprise. As part of the Exchange, he corresponds regularly with his human counterpart on Denobula, Dr. Lucas (After the Xindi attack on Earth, Dr. Lucas was recalled from Denobula and transferred to the Earth Cryogenic Storage Facility known as Cold Station 12). Dr. Phlox has three wives, who each has two other husbands. Only one of his wives, Feezal, was seen on the show. Phlox has five children by his wives: two daughters (both of whom, like him, work in the medical field) and three sons. The Denobulan are a fictional humanoid race in the Star Trek universe. ... The Xindi are an alien race in the fictional Star Trek universe. ...


The doctor is portrayed as having an open mind to other species and cultures (even the Antarans, a race that was once at war with the Denobulans). His sickbay contains an interplanetary zoo of animals, some of them as food for other animals which are used as source for medical drugs. He is curious and has a wry sense of humor. He also has an affinity for Earth cuisine, particularly Chinese Food. China has one of the richest culinary heritages on Earth. ...


Phlox is also interested in religion: he once prayed with a group of monks which visited the Enterprise, spent a week with monks at a Tibetan monastery, attended Mass at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome and observed the Tal Shara ritual at the Vulcan compound in Sausalito. Mass is the term used of the celebration of the Eucharist in the various liturgical rites of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglo-Catholic tradition of Anglicanism, and in some Lutheran regions which are largely High Church: the main Lutheran service is still known as the...

Vulcans are a humanoid species in the fictional Star Trek universe who reside on the planet Vulcan and are noted for their attempt to live by reason and logic, with no interference from emotion. ...


Phlox's physical abilities have been revealed gradually over time. He appears to need little sleep, instead embarking on an annual "hibernation" of sorts that lasts for several days. He also has great control over his facial muscles, being able to open his mouth wider than humans (this has been demonstrated by the impossibly large grin he occasionally sports). When confronted with loneliness, his people can sometimes create incredibly realistic hallucinations. When threatened, Phlox also has the ability to inflate his head like a blowfish to scare off predators. A hallucination is a false sensory perception in the absence of an external stimulus, as distinct from an illusion, which is a misperception of an external stimulus. ...

Mirror Universe

In the Mirror Universe, Phlox is not the engaging, peaceful and friendly character he is in the normal Trek universe. The mirror Phlox dresses in a severe black leather uniform, unlike the civilian clothing worn by his counterpart. Mirror Phlox resembles Josef Mengele in his utter lack of morals: he routinely experiments on living alien beings in a horrible fashion in his sickbay, which resembles a chamber of horrors. When the ISS Enterprise is destroyed by the Tholians, Phlox and other survivors transfer to the captured Defiant. Eventually, Phlox is convinced by the Mirror T'Pol and Soval to join a rebellion against the Terran Empire, and attempts to sabotage the ship, but is stopped by Trip. In the Star Trek television series, the Mirror Universe is an alternate reality. ... Josef Mengele Josef Mengele, M.D., Ph. ...

Trivia

Phlox was reportedly rumored to be the other candidate (after Malcolm Reed) for Star Trek's first openly homosexual main character. Because of Star Trek's history of representing all races, colors and creeds as having a future in Roddenberry's universe, producers may have been considering the requests from fans over the years to finally include alternate sexual lifestyles. It is believed that fans imagined him in this way more because of his effusive personality. Phlox has been revealed as married with children in what might be considered, by human purposes, a heterosexual relationship. On Denobula, multi-partner marriages are common and, by extention, Denobulans seem to be bisexual by nature. The "family" of Phlox consists of his three wives, each of which also has two other husbands. Malcolm Reed (born September 2) is the fictional British officer on the Enterprise, in the TV series Star Trek: Enterprise. ... Bisexuality in human sexual behavior refers to the aesthetic, romantic, and sexual desire for people of both genders and/or for people of both sexes. ...

Star Trek: Enterprise (originally titled Enterprise) is a science fiction television series set in the Star Trek universe that premiered in the United States on September 26, 2001, following the adventures of the crew of the pre-Federation Enterprise (NX-01), the first human-built vessel to achieve Warp 5.
In an ironic twist to the years-long fight to bring Star Trek back to television in the 1970s and 1980s, there are a growing number of Trekkies who feel that the concept has worn out itself and should either be retired or laid to rest for a number of years.
Then Trek United announced that the studio had formally rejected the idea and that promised refunds for those fans who had donated to the cause would be issued beginning on April 18.
