JANEWAY: What is it, Ensign
Kim: Our probe... was just scanned... There's... there's somebody on the other side of the wormhole!
(The Doctor and new assistant Kes have a patient - a man with a sore wrist.)
BAXTER: It started acting up a couple of days ago. I'd been working out in the gym, maybe I overdid it.
The Doctor: Is it sore here?
The Doctor: Localized tenderness to the ulnar bone, no epidermal damage, moderate oedema. What are the possible diagnoses?
KES: Epicondylitis, strained ligament, torn muscle and hairline fracture
The Doctor: That's exactly right.
KES: I've studied all the material you gave me. I'm ready for more
The Doctor: Good. There's a great deal more for you to learn. The tricorder indicates this is a small stress fracture.
BAXTER: Can this guy do everything a real doctor does?
The Doctor hands a device to Kes.
The Doctor: Yes, he can. Activate it and direct the beam here.
Kes uses the device
The Doctor: That's it. Not so fast.
BAXTER: If I had to get treatment for something serious, if I needed surgery for instance, would he be performing it?
EMH: Of course, and quite expertly too.
BAXTER: (to Kes) I don't know. I'd have to think twice about that.
The Doctor: Fine. And if you were lucky you wouldn't die on the table while you were making up your mind. That should do it. How does it feel?
BAXTER: Not bad. Thanks. (Baxter leaves.)
KES: Doctor, did you notice how rudely that officer treated you?
DOC: Not more so than most.
