Re: True or False: Dear Dr. is most morally bankrupt trek episode evar

I think it is time for a gentle reminder.

People are entitled to express their opinions, even if they don't hold the same opinion as you. While it is lovely that you can support your point of view with examples and arguments and colorful language, it still is, at most, your opinion. If you've already expressed your opinion, or your agreement with someone else's opinion, it is probably time to move on. You don't have to re-state your views every time someone makes a post that disagrees with you.

Thanks.

False, but only insomuch as it is actually tied with "Homeward" for most morally-bankrupt episode ever.

Shouldn't this be in the General Discussion or TNG forum now?

Re: True or False: Dear Dr. is most morally bankrupt trek episode evar

I think the whole point of this episode was about how starfleet did not currently have any rules on how to go about the universe. Future trek have the Prime Directive and this eposide probably went along way in establishing this.

The dual moral of this episode was not only letting this 'less advanced than us' race die because they were not advanced enough to do it themseves (cure/Warp drive) but also did they have the right to effectivly halt development of another species in the process i.e. what gives starfleet the right to interfere and decide which species should exist.
