Watched "Realm of Fear" yesterday, which I enjoyed except for a few things:
-After Barclay confirms he saw the giant microbes in the transporter stream, Picard has LaForge and O'Brien shut down all transporters and perform a diagnostic. I know Barclay had been strange and paranoid before, buy why not send another person through to confirm that the microbes exist?
-They never really explain how the crew members turned into worm-things while in the transporter beam. If they were trying to cleanse themselves of microbes, shouldn't they look like humans glowing blue (like Reg did earlier during LaForge's test of the container)?
