Like most Denobulan males, he had three wives, who in turn each had three husbands. Two of his 'first' wives were Xesophia, who sadly died in a drowning accident in 2124, and Endora, while a later wife, Feezal, once visited him aboard Enterprise. (ENT episodes: "Dear Doctor", "Stigma", "Zero Hour", ENT short story: "Cabin E-14")
- Phlox's alma mater's name was not mentioned.
In February of 2152 Phlox was assigned to decontaminate the quarters of Crewman Daniels, who had been revealed to be a time-traveler from the 31st century. While in Daniels quarters, Phlox discovered a device that allowed him travel through time at will and decided to use the device to rescue his wife Xesophia before the accident.
The device didn't work as Phlox hoped, and he was only able to travel back ten months, shortly after Enterprise's launch. With Daniel's assistance, Phlox was able to use the device to return to the proper time, but not before glimpsing a possible future in which Enterprise was under attack by Nausicaan pirates. (ENT short story: "Cabin E-14")
After the Albino had bombed the peace conference on Korvat in 2291, Doctor Christine Chapel studied material written by Phlox to better understand the Albino and his condition. (TLE novel: Excelsior: Forged in Fire)
In the year 2375 Phlox's notes on a malady known as Vulcans scourge were crucial to Doctors Julian Bashir and Beverly Crusher on Federation starbase Deep Space 9 in their efforts in finding a cure for a virus created by the Dominion that targeted Vulcans. (ST short story: "Mirror Eyes")
By the year 2376, a medical research facility named the Phlox Institute had been named in his honor. Katherine Pulaski served at the Phlox Institute until at least 2379. (SCE eBook: Progress; TNG novel: A Time for War, A Time for Peace)
In an alternate timeline in which John Frederick Paxton destroyed Starfleet Command and ended the talks for the Coalition of Planets in 2155, Phlox left the Enterprise in 2161, following the Isolationist Party's takeover of the Parliament of United Earth. He returned to his family on Denobula. He had died prior to 2264.
By 2264, his great-grandson Vleb was the Denobulan ambassador to the Interstellar Coalition and attended the conference on Babel that year to consider United Earth's petition for membership. During the conference, he related one of Phlox's less-than-complimentary stories about Captain Jonathan Archer to Ambassador Nancy Hedford (TOS - Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)
