Too true. Look at the way characters treat Barclay on TNG. That isn't very IDIC. Only Picard seems to stand up for the guy.
That is exactly correct. Where is Humanity's "evolved sensibility" when it comes to Barclay? Now, there's a thought! Does the 24th Century Earth continue to harass and make fun of nerds and dorks, as a matter of course? Why screw with tradition? And am I right in understanding that Barclay didn't even turn up in these stories, until after Roddenberry died? Surprisingly, no one in the Enterprise cast of regulars gets that kind of treatment, for being - what - 300 years earlier?

Evolved on Star Trek means being better than other, coarser races. That's it.

Kind of like how some people use the word 'spiritual'. OH THE IRONY.

Re: Favorite/Underrated Episodes of ENT

Barclay just dragged down that whole argument of how wonderful TNG Humans are compared to us. Now, understand ... this isn't just some philosophical concern on my part - this is actually underscored in the series, itself. Picard - well, any of the main cast, really, but mostly Picard - has emphasized to alien races how Humans are so superior, not so much to them, ironically, but when compared to "what we once were ..." basically, the current-day home-viewing audience.

Re: Favorite/Underrated Episodes of ENT

TNG's evolved sensibilities were a load of fuzzy headed crap. The crew was a bunch of condescending ass hats. Any episode that played toward those sensibilities, such as 'Dear Doctor' serve only to highlight the patronizing and supercilious nature of the TNG era.

No. Roddenberry died during production of season five (October 24,1991). "Hollow Pursuits" was near the end of season three (aired April 30,1990). Though I'm not sure how involved Roddenberry was in the day-to-day writing of the show at that point?
