The only hope to Enterprise is the support of Columbia that brings
Trip. Travis synchronizes the flight of Enterprise with Columbia while
Reed brings Trip on board in a risky operation. Then Trip cold starts
the reactor and repairs the system while Columbia sustains a warp field
with Enterprise. Then they travel together to the genetic research
facility in the Qu'Vat colony. Dr. Antaak and Phlox discover a cure,
but they do not tell the General K'Vagh that the process of creating
augments will be interrupted. Meanwhile Harris contacts Archer to
discuss the situation of Reed. Archer reintegrates Reed to his
position, but demanding loyalty to him. When the Enterprise and
Columbia arrives in Qu'Var, they are attacked by the ships of Admiral
Krell that has received orders to destroy the colony. However, Phlox
sends a capsule to his Bird of Prey and releases the virus in Krell and
his crew and interrupt the "sterilization" process.
"Divergence" is an engaging conclusion of "Affliction". This series usually gives great lines and space to lead and support characters. But in this episode, the participations of Phlox, Trip and Reed overshadow Archer and T'Pol. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): "Ponto de Vista" ("Viewpoint")

Well one great thing about enterprise over the seasons was to explain
some discrepancy of STToS and the other series, and this episode brings
a nice coherent explanation about the "klingons" looking like humans in
the original series.. Actually it looks like both the episodes were
crafted for that very purpose, but instead of just making this episode
as an excuse for it they still managed to bring some interesting things
into it, such as columbia or die hard rip off, also some ethics
problems came up.. responded in a weird way from flux though, whose
usually so keen to follow ethics and went kinda overboard this time
around, it's a nice change after all.
Also the fact that we don't see ONLY fighter cast in klingons anymore is great, I always hated the klingons episodes in star trek, always useless brainless violence, stupid caricatures to be honest, but with enterprise we see (a little) more than that, it's refreshing...
So yes, a great episode, with some interesting facts and explanations , and also the new interest about "Trip" (a pretty dull character usually), looking forward for the next episodes!
As a side note the whole thing about malcom which was supposed to make him a more interesting character kinda felt short, as usual no consequences arise after an act of treason this time, so that part is to be forgotten

This concluding episode to a two-part story opens with Phlox still
being forced to help the Klingons find a cure for the plague that has
been infecting them since their experiments with augments. Back on
Enterprise they are also in trouble; the sabotage carried out by the
Klingons means the ship will explode if it goes below warp five. Only
one man can undo what they have done, the problem is that he is aboard
the Columbia. To get him aboard Enterprise at warp five will not be
easy; he will have to cross between the two ships via a tether and the
slightest mistake could kill him or even destroy both ships. With
Enterprise saved they must get to Dr. Phlox before the Klingon fleet
arrives and sterilises the entire base. Phlox does find a cure but it
will cause major changes to Klingons for the foreseeable future. While
this is going on the Captain learns why Malcolm was acting against his
orders and Malcolm realises he can only take orders from one man.
This episode was a decent conclusion to the story; the scene where Trip crossed between the two ships was gripping and it seemed quite possible that somebody might get hurt. It was rather fun how the Klingons were changed so that they will appear how they do in the original series thus plugging one of the major inconsistencies between the various series.
