Love it!

i have to say that I'd be happy with any Trek doctor. But my personal favorite for bedside manner and skills is Dr. Bashier.

Neither one was good enough to stay on the Enterprise.

Wait a minute. Are we talking McCoy (Prime), or McCoy (JJVerse)?

Boyce makes cocktails out of his medical bag so that's a strenth as far as I'm concerned. "Tough day son? Here." [whips out martini for you]

In this galaxy, there's a mathematical probability of three million Earth-type planets. And in all of the universe, three million million galaxies like this. And in all of that, and perhaps more, only one of Dr McCoy.

Favorite quote (or in this case paraphrase) in all of Star Trek.

Re: Who is the best doctor?

This was tough... Bones is probably my favorite doctor, but Bashir is my favorite Trek Character. Wish I could vote for two, but had to settle on one... Bashir it is, simply for his growth into the doctor, and person, he became.

I still find it hard to believe Roddenberry never heard of the guy, his baby books were all over the place in 1964.

They all have their strengths and weaknesses. But being I'm a huge, huge TNG fan it has to be Beverly.

Re: Who is the best doctor?

The way McCoy was written and played, he was very believable as a real, flawed human being. His imperfect practice of medicine got even more pronounced in the films. In THE WRATH OF KHAN, Chekov comes right out and says that Khan "put creatures in our ears" -- and McCoy blows it off without so much as a tricorder reading. BIG mistake. In ST6 he has a bad time treating the wounded Klingon.

So McCoy is the best in terms of being a realistic human with flaws and frailties, even as that might make him the last STAR TREK doctor in a starring role you would pick to treat your own injuries.

No, I'd like to amend that: Flox is last, coming in just barely before Doctor Zoidberg on FUTURAMA.

To get the best treatment, I'd go for some 24th century high-tech from the EMH.

The Doctor, of course.
He`s not only the best doc, he`s also one of the best Star Trek characters of all of the shows.
