add to ETHICS if not too late

Hi Trek TV Friends, Here's my effort to get an mp3mail's landing to match the topic at hand, play this after your analysis of TNG's 'Ethics' Here's what I thought as I watched Oh. This episode. Kind of a throw-back to those TNG 'afterschool special' flavored fables that clutter it's early run. This episode felt pedantic and dated when I saw it in real time (199?) but Trek hada blind spot with respect to disability which it tried to rectify in TNG so that's good. Some awfully sweet prothstesis must available by then. The're a lot better now than they were in our own continuities recent past, I guess we see some here but seriously why salvage walking? Why walk all? Anti-grav it, NOMAD style and float around like a red balloon with contempt for mere bi-pedalism. I remember a Stephan Hawking interview where he wondered aloud why by Trektimes people were so tragically, uncritically sentimental about their own personal biology. Everyone should be a cyborg, six million dollar men, bionic woman and whatnot one and all, oh well. No matter. I like Worf. Even though I don't, at all, count myself among the Klingon devotees. I like Worf. It's important for the show's that the spotlight falls on him sometimes. ...also a few random observations Do two lady doctors discussing a male patient qualify as a bechtal pass? There's some philosophy for ya.... Oh, I forgot Alexander was on the ship...and is sick bay food big time diff from the rest of. rPrise's vittle stock? Ok, that's enuff Marc
