During that period he planned to clone the perfect specimen prototype into a master race, however, the concept was considered anti-humanistic by Earth leaders, and Dr. Keniclius was exiled. His later essays further explained his intentions of using his master race as a peace-keeping force throughout the galaxy.
Keniclius eventually left Earth and continued his search for the perfect specimen, becoming known in legends as the modern day Diogenes, before finally ending up on the planetPhylos.
Keniclius, however, was a carrier of a non-native gram-positivestaphylococcus strain of bacteria that nearly destroyed all life on Phylos. He worked to save the Phylosians from his disease. The Phylosians eventually referred to Keniclius as "the Master."
While discussing the origins of Dr. Keniclius, Dr. McCoy mentioned that former eugenics scientist was over 250 years old. This would place Dr. Keniclius's date of birth sometime prior to2019.
Some of the actors pronounce his name closer to "Keniculus."
In the Strange New Worlds 9 story "The Rules of War", Keniclius is the enemy commander with whom Captain Archer's ancestor negotiated the evacuation of schoolchildren from a war zone, as mentioned in "Hatchery".)
