I really liked John in his role as Dr. Phlox. He had a distinctive way of speaking and moving his head to emphasize a point. Good character.

He is very talented, I took it badly when Enterprise was canceled.

I wish him great things. PLEASE find a new role for him in upcoming Trek projects… or a cameo in one of McCoy’s instructional medical vids.
