Anyone except Bashir and Phlox.

But McCoy, Leonard H will always get my vote in these polls.

I suppose in the end, since he is genetically enginereed, Bashir is the most skilled and competent doctor.
Things didn't work out too well for Khan and his gang of supermen. The genetically "superior" didn't fare too well in GATTACA, either.

As for Dr. Boyce's bartender kit, don't forget that McCoy mixes pangalactic gargle blasters with Klingon nerve gas. And remember not to tick him off when he's relaxing with a mint julep.

I think that Bashir is the best doktor mainly because of his ability to learn quickly, that's why he got my vote
By that logic, the EMH is the clear winner.

Anyway, I think this poorly worded thread is more about your favorite Doctor and I probably have to say "EMH", I find that starting from season 6 his personality did make a change for the worse but I still find him the most watchable along with Dr Crusher.

Re: Who is the best doctor?

McCoy is my favourite with the Doctor second since he made an awful show borderline watchable, but as far as expertise go I'd always want Bashir.

Re: Who is the best doctor?

Bashir probably got the best episode of any of the doctor characters in the form of "The Quickening".

No, I'd like to amend that: Flox is last, coming in just barely before Doctor Zoidberg on FUTURAMA.
Give me Zoidberg any day of the week.

McCoy. I don't think I need to specify the actor or the character.

Pretty sure this thread's been around not so long ago.

Anyway, I'm puzzled as to how McCoy is leading. "He's dead, Jim"


Voted Beverly; though Bashir is close.

Best actor by a long shot, most relatable character of the bunch and the man pulled some medical rabbits out of his hat during the five-year mission.

I agree. I like McCoy, but he rarely (if ever) attempted to resuscitate anyone. Ooops, his heart stopped beating a few seconds ago, so, well, that's it then... "He's dead, Jim!"

He tried to revive Gorkon, who had been shot through the chest, but any old redshirt on his crew was declared a corpse if he stopped breathing for a few seconds.

McCoy is my favourite Doctor. Oh, you mean in Star Trek? Then I'd say Bashir is my favourite for his character development and wonderful friendships with Garak and O'Brien.

Given that they were raised in completely different universes, and one of them is over a decade older than the other, how are they "the same." Certainly not the same in knowledge, experience and skills. They are two entirely different people, who just happen to share the same name.

About the only thing we know about the alternate McCoy's skills as a doctor is that apparently he doesn't understand how to administer an injection.

"The Doctor" is a computer program. So to be fair, in evaluating the other doctors, you have to take into account all the store knowledge in whatever computers exists aboard their respective ship.

They're two different actors playing the same ficticious character. Don't confuse the age of the actor with that of the character. In-universe, they are the same, just as Kirsty Alley and Robin Curtis are both Saavik.
