Re: Episode of the Week: 2x11 "Contagion"

A couple of classic lines in this one;

Pulaski; "It's a time honored way of practicing medicine with your heart, and your head, and your hands."

Riker; "If it should become necessary to fight, could you arrange to find me some rocks to throw at them?"
"Fate: Protects fools, little children, and ships named Enterprise."

A couple of posts have made mention of the fact that the "reboot to factory settings" wasn't very accurate. This episode was made in 1989. As far as I can recall I was still using DOS in school at the time and there was no such thing as a "factory reset". I'm no technology expert, but shouldn't we be giving this episode credit for inventing, or at least inspiring, the factory reset?

Also, for people saying that they would like to explore more of the Iconion gateways, there was a seven book series about them; http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_Gateways
