As a huge fan of Star Trek I have been remiss in not writing. I have listened to your podcast for years including the dark years LOL.
I wanted to comment on Transfigurations. Tracy said that "this is not how evolution happens". She meant to say, I believe, "this is not how evolution happens here as far as we know". In science we should not dismiss out of hand that which we are observing with our own eyes. We have only this planet as background information. For all we know there is this type of evolution on another planet with another species. Science requires investigation.
I look forward to the next episode and I will continue writing.
