Re: Tuvix - dumbest character in star trek history?

Yeah, like the trolley problem. But instead of being way too simplistic and perfect for real world issues, it was way too out there.
"Two of your friends have been sybiogenically merged into one being. You have the cure, but the being doesn't want you to perform the procedure. Do you do it? Chose carefully, this answer determines whether you are moral or not"
"Umm, can I just run a train into some conveniently placed people and call it a day?"

I liked the episode too, I just feel it would have been a better sci-fi weirdness and character episode than the moral angle.
