Was Beverly a waste of space?

How come any culture she did not find to her tastes, she utterly condemned as "bad" or "savage"?

Surely if one is merely living in a multi-species Federation, such judgmental/holier-than-thou attitudes hold no place. Reminds me of when she said in Sins of the Father "what kind of weapon causes a vicious wound like that?" lol. yeah, Klingons will stop using weapons of their choice invented by their Kahless divinity, just because some dopey-arse Starfleet doctor says so.

Re: Was Beverly a waste of space?

I wouldn't call Beverly a waste of space, she's perfect for a ship full of families. She could also be a bit judgmental at times but she's a doctor, she's suppose to diagnose. It feels like she has uses the word savage but I can't think of any episodes, you should link the episodes you refer to. Maybe in context she used it correctly.

Diagnostics and judgmental behaviour. yeah, that's an evident link... Do Klingons have to give a shit what some Starfleet doctor thinks of their assassin practices?

^I think a Klingon would take pride in a doctor calling their attack vicious.

She was opinionated, that's for sure. Nothing wrong with that. She never tried to impose her own views to others.

Beside, even if she were, she would have been one of the prettiest ways to waste space.

Opinionated? more like condemning other species, with their own evolution

What's more, who the hell are you to condemn MY opinion as meaningless?

You really should mention an episode to go with that statement. I like to know what you're referencing to. I don't think she condemned any species.
