Abstract: Let $X$ be an Axiom A flow with a transverse torus $T$ exhibiting a unique orbit $O$ that does not intersect $T$. Suppose that there is no null-homotopic closed curve in $T$ contained in either the stable or unstable set of $O$. Then we show that $X$ has either an attracting periodic orbit or a repelling periodic orbit or is transitive. In particular, an Anosov flow with a transverse torus is transitive if it has a unique periodic orbit that does not intersect the torus.
