A Starfleet captain who knows nothing about the culture of their fellow Federation co-founders is bad enough, but a Starfleet doctor who knows nothing about Vulcan physiology despite having a half-Vulcan crew member is just ridiculous.
Not just this episode but in the entire series this attidue bothers me. I would think that by the 23rd century a Doctor would have a breadth of knowledge about other humanoid species.
They should that Dr. Phlox on Enteprise seemd to be more knowledgeable about the physiology of other humanoid species.
