Re: Why do so many people rag on "Dear doctor"

The science in the episode is very weak -- evolution doesn't have any predetermined outcome -- but then, that's par for the course with Trek's approach to biology.
"Dear Doctor" is one of the only five or six episodes of ENT I've ever actually watched from beginning to end. Out of that handful of episodes, this, I guess you could say, was my favorite... but I couldn't help think by the end of the episode how much better it could have been had a real SF author tackled it.

...and it deserves recognition as one of Star Trek's finest hours.
I think that's pushing it.
