Moral :
Restraint : Learning to avoid meddling in the affair of others
YATI : Star Trek has a long history of abusing evolution, and this episode continues that tradition. It is impossible to predict that one species is going to out-evolve another, as Phlox does here.
Great Moment : Seeing a more serious side to Phlox.
Body Count : Zero.
Factoid : Kellie Waymire, who plays Elizabeth Cutler in this episode, also played Lanya in the Voyager episode "Muse".
Quote : "Some day, my people are going to come up with some sort of a doctrine, something that tells us what we can and can't do out here, should and shouldn't do. But until somebody tells me that they have drafted that directive, I'm going to have to remind myself that we didn't come out here to play god." - Archer to Phlox


Enterprise encounters a sub-warp ship whose crew is searching for a cure to a sickness that is raveging their home world. Archer is keen to help, but on arrival they find that there are two intelligent species on the planet - and Phlox soon realises that helping one might well hold up the natural evolution of the other. But will Archer really be willing to allow a whole culture to die for his principles?
