Storyline

At Dr. Phlox's request, Enterprise attempts to retrieve 3 Denobulan scientists from the planet Xantoras, where the Goverment has ordered all off-worlders to evacuate within 3 days. Tucker, Reed, and Mayweather navigate a series of labyrinthine underground caves in search of the scientists. Meanwhile, Enterprise lends assistance to a damaged ship fleeing the planet. Doctor Phlox faces an ethical dilemma when one of the refugees of the ship refuses life-saving treatment. The patient, an Antaran, holds a grudge against Phlox stemming from a war between their races that ended 300 years ago and would rather die than be treated by a Denobulan. Phlox defies Archer's direct order to force treatment because it goes against the Deobulan code to yield to "the will of the patient." Written by Meribor

Intolerance and Ethics
22 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dr. Phlox receives a message and asks Captain Archer to rescue three Denobulan researchers from the underground caves in planet Xantoras since the government decided to expel all the aliens due to a civil war. Trip, Reed and Travis travel to the planet with a schedule of three days to bring the scientists to the Enterprise. Meanwhile, the Enterprise helps a ship with a breach in her reactor, and Dr. Phlox faces an ethical dilemma when an Antaran patient, a race enemy of the Denobulan, does not accept his treatment.

"The Breach" is an episode divided in drama of intolerance, ethics and action. Dr. Phlox faces the order of Captain Archer, based on the human Aristotelian ethics code, and his beliefs on the Denobulan ethics code, based on the will of the patient. My vote is eight.
