Doctor's Orders (Star Trek: Enterprise)

"Doctor's Orders" is the sixteenth episode from the third season of the television series Star Trek: Enterprise. It's the sixty-eighth episode of the series, first airing on February 18, 2004. While traveling through the Delphic Expanse, Enterprise encounters a trans-dimensional disturbance that lies directly along its time-sensitive course to Azati Prime and the Xindi weapon; the crew learns that the disturbance causes permanent neurological damage to humans. To avoid a two-week detour, while avoiding the danger to the crew, Doctor Phlox disables the neocortex of all human crewmembers, to survive the four day journey through the disturbance at reduced speed. While the crew is sedated, Phlox attends to his extended duties aboard the ship, including caring for Captain Archer's dog, immune to the effects of the disturbance; as he does so, he takes the opportunity to compose a letter to an acquaintance of his. Phlox himself begins to become nervous and is spooked by regular ship noises. In Engineering, falsely perceiving movement, he becomes tense and nervous.

While investigating a noise he encounters Sub-Commander T'Pol, carrying out duties while the human crew are sedated and, as a Vulcan, has been enjoying the quiet contemplation this situation allows her. She commits to spending more time with Phlox. Phlox's paranoia escalates to delusions. At one point he believes. T'Pol insists there is nothing on the sensors, but humours him by helping with a deck-to-deck search, which reveals nothing; when Phlox shoots Porthos, T'Pol reminds him that it is healthy for his race to use hallucinations to relieve stress. Phlox disagrees, until he sees a ` zombie' an awake Captain Archer, he scans himself and confirms the disturbance is impacting his thinking. He plans to sedate himself and let T'Pol run the ship, but she acknowledges that she is becoming disturbed, they discover that the anomaly is expanding and that they are ten weeks, rather than six hours, from emerging. Both of them are now agitated and distracted, with T'Pol's mind unable to focus on helping as Phlox battles to master the warp drive—he succeeds in getting them free.

That done, he escorts T'Pol to her room, only to find her sleeping there, having been sedated at the same time as the human crew. His T'Pol hallucination disappears. Phlox sends his unedited letter to his acquaintance, assuring him that he will enjoy the story of his hallucinations. In 2015, Den of Geek in a review of important show characters, noted him as "funny, quirky Phlox" and pointing out the character introduced audience to the Denobulan species, they recommended the episodes "Dear Doctor", “Stigma”, "The Breach”, “Doctor’s Orders” for the Phlox character. "One," an episode of Star Trek: Voyager which earlier used a similar plot. The Court Jester, The movie Doctor Phlox watches during movie night.

Vlajka

Vlajka means flag in Czech. You may be after the flag article, or the flag of the Czech Republic.Český národně socialistický tábor — Vlajka or Vlajka was the name of a small Czech fascist and nationalist movement, its corresponding publication. The publication itself was founded in 1928, its first editor being Miloš Maixner. During the time of German occupation the organisation collaborated with the Nazis for which it was banned and its members were punished after the liberation; the movement became politically active in the 1930s in the period of the Great depression, but never gained popularity as there were more established fascist parties in Czechoslovakia, such as the NOF, which gained some seats in Parliament. During the Second Czechoslovak Republic, the organization planned bomb attacks against Jewish organizations in revenge for the supposed dominance of Jews in the economy, the Beran government's supposed willingness to allow Jews to transfer their property abroad; the first bombing, against the synagogue in Hradec Králové, was in January 1939.

These attacks continued after the March 1939 German occupation, because Vlajka was disappointed with their lack of prominence in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia and felt that anti-Jewish policies were not severe enough. The only deaths in these attacks were Vlajka members. After the German occupation the organisation collaborated with the Nazi police institutions, such as the Gestapo and Sicherheitsdienst in order to eliminate communists and people connected with the previous Czechoslovak establishment. For that the organisation's existence was tolerated by Germans until 1942 though there was only one permitted Czech political organisation, the National Partnership; the Vlajka became politically unacceptable after another traitor, Emanuel Moravec, was appointed the Minister of Education in the government of Protectorate in January 1942. He was and criticized and fiercely denounced by Vlajka members for being a former legionary, an officer of the Czechoslovak Army and an alleged Freemason.

At the end of 1942, Vlajka was disbanded and some of its leaders, including Jan Rys-Rozsévač, were held in the Dachau concentration camp as privileged prisoners. Though the party no longer existed, its former members continued to collaborate with the Gestapo and SD. Towards the end of the war they formed the so called Voluntary Company of St. Wenceslaus, the only Waffen-SS unit composed of volunteers of Czech ethnicity. After the war, the leaders of Vlajka were subject to punishment of 5-20 years of imprisonment according to Beneš decree No. 16/1945 Coll.. 138/1945 Coll. Four leaders of Vlajka and many other Vlajka members who caused the death of people through denunciation, were executed.
