Enterprise fans please read this

  1. I just saw the episode called Dear Doctor. I was totally shocked by their (Phlox and Archer) decision to let people suffer and die because of some evolutionary gobblygood that Phlox spouted. I realize that it is just a ficitonal story but I can't see anyone doing something like that and call themselves a physician.

    I missed the episode. I had the VCR set to tape it while I was at work, but came home and found "Beauty and the Beast' in the VCR instead of my tape. Needless to say, I did not get it taped. Can you fill me in?

    I used to be a real Star Trek fan, but my interest has dwindled the last few years. Sorry, can't comment.

    Me too, I used to even go to the conventions!
    I will, however, unashamedly throw myself at Michael Dorn ("Worf") if I ever see him in public.

    Michael Dorn was the best thing about Next Generation as far as I was concerned.

    Was always partial to Data, myself...

    Data Rocks! Brent Spiner was perfect in that role. His acting was so good that often times people forget that he is not really an android.

    I think that had it been TNG or Voyager, the likelyhood of them not helping would have been significanty less. There was one TNG episode where Data rescued a little girl from a planet that was going bad or something. He took her back to the Enterprise (the child had never heard of a starship or any of the technology onboard). Captian Picard reprised Data for his decision, but Data asked Picard what he would have done. To which, Picard said he would have probaly done the same thing.

    I think Leonard McCoy would have helped the sick planet. After all, the people were asking for the help. He would never say no. Why go to the lab and find a treatment and then turn around and say I don't think I will use this because you should let nature take it's course. If you let nature take it's course you would not have a lab in first place.

    Data was a real sweetie pie, the darlingist man who never lived. Brent Spinner did such good work with that character.

    PS I have been thinking about the original post. I think the Ferengi will show up shortly and sell the cure to the poor Valakians.
