Doctor Phlox                                          "Dear Doctor" [ENT]
    ca 2114:  Phlox becomes a doctor.  He's been a doctor for nearly 40 years as of early 2154.
                                         "Damage" [ENT]
    Not long after becoming a physician there was an explosion aboard a cargo ship orbiting his homeworld.
        He was part of the first medical teams to arrive.  There were 17 dead on the bridge alone.  He had never
        seen that many dead bodies in one place before and found the experience very disturbing.
                                           "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    He spent time as a medic in the Denobulan infantry where he learned that war zones are not safe places,
        even during a cease fire.   "Cease Fire" [ENT]
    He once was almost overwhelmed by 50 patients in a refugee camp on Matalas.
                                                               "Dear Doctor" [ENT]
    Phlox teaches at a medical academy for years, and he finds the experience rewarding.
                                                               "Fight or Flight" [ENT]
    Dr. Phlox was stationed on Earth as part of the Vulcan Interspecies Medical Exchange Program.  He is
        an optimist.                                    "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    He holds 6 degrees in interspecies veterinary medicine; also dentistry, hematology, botanical
        pharmacology and a degree in psychology.
                                                                "A Night in Sickbay" [ENT]
    While on Earth, Phlox made it a point to study a number of religious traditions.  He spent two weeks
        at a Tibetan monastery where he learned to sing chords with the high lamas.  He attended mass at
        Saint Peter's Square.  And he was even allowed to observe the "Tal-Shanar" ceremonies at the Vulcan
        Consulate.                                       "Cold Front" [ENT]
    He was assigned to the Enterprise when the crew was hastily assembled. He has a facination for
        humanity and their social interactions.
                                                                "Broken Bow" [ENT]
    Dr. Phlox says his Starfleet physical was something he never wants to repeat.
                                                                "Bounty" [ENT]
    He keeps in contact with Dr. Lucas, a human who is his counterpart on Denobula.  He is trying to
        overcome his habits, such as the Denobulan aversion to being touched.  He allows Ensign Cutler
        to give him a good night kiss and wonders if she has an interest in him.  Phlox coaches Sato in
        Denobulan.                                      "Dear Doctor" [ENT]

    Phlox has three wives, each of which has three husbands.
                                                                "Dear Doctor" [ENT]
    Feezal - It had been 4 years since he had seen his second wife Feezal.
                                                                "Stigma" [ENT]

    Phlox has five children, all of which have "left the nest" years ago.
                                                               "A Night in Sickbay" [ENT]
    His two daughters have followed in his footsteps, one's a surgeon, and the other's a biochemist.
    His eldest son is an artist, a potter, actually and live in the same town as his mother.
    His two younger sons and him have never seen eye to eye and haven't spoken in quite some time.
    His "extended" family (each wife having 3 husbands, etc.) has 31 children in it.
                                                                "A Night in Sickbay" [ENT]
    Mettus, his youngest son, was seduced by people who hate Antarans.  Phlox did his best to convince
        him he was mistaken and told him he wouldn't tolerate the values he was embracing.  It created a rift
        between them.  So that they haven't spoken for 10 years until 2153 when an encounter with an Antaran
        prompted Phlox to dictate a letter to his son.
                                                                "The Breach" [ENT]

    Phlox has at least five grandmothers, and had three separate weddings.
                                                                "Doctor's Orders" [ENT]
    One of his grandmothers lived through the last war with the Antarans.  When Phlox was quite young
    he and some friends had planned to take a trip to a nearby arboreal planet.  It was a park of sorts with
    a great variety of exotic animal life.  But the week before Phlox was supposed to leave his grandmother
    took him aside and told him he couldn't go.  She said the planet was tainted -- that Antarans had lived
    there once.  Even though they'd been gone for years, she believed the place had been spoiled by their
    presence.  She would tell Phlox stories about the Antarans that would give him nightmares.  He never
    told these stories to his children, so that now, all his children except Mettus, consider his
    grandmother's attitude as archaic.       "The Breach" [ENT]
