Well, Phlox's attitude sure has changed. Back in Vox Sola he refused an order to perform invasive tests on a severed tentacle for ethical reasons. Now he has no problem at all doing the same thing to the living components of the Xindi rifle.
Great Moment :
Nice to see that the Xindi aren't a stereotypically evil species.
Body Count :
Two seeker machines blasted.
We learn that there used to be six Xindi species, and they they warred on one another – the Avians were exterminated in the war.
Enterprise finally locates a Xindi colony, and on investigation discovers that it is producing a vital component of the weapon which is to be used against Earth. Archer plans to destroy the entire colony, but when he captures and interrogates one of the Xindi scientists, he begins to realise that the differences between the Xindi run deeper than the physical.
