UPN last night released the promo for next week's Enterprise episode, entitled 'Dear Doctor'.

In the episode, Archer must decide whether to give medical aid to an alien race when Phlox declines to help because of his ethical beliefs.

A digitised version of the 30-second trailer has been made available online at Outpost6. For those with slower connections, here's a transcript:

[Archer and Sato look on.]
[Shot of T'Pol standing in sickbay.]
