  • About the Prime Directive and Genetic Manipulation

    There are several plot devices going on here. The first is genetic manipulation. The second which follows on is the limitations of gm particularly human conditions such as love. The next is concerning Jordi's (a disabled person) ability to save the GM people, and the irony of not even existing if he had been conceived in the GM society. The final one is the prime directive and its lack of cover on isolated human colonies.

    This is one of my favourite epsiodes purely because of the issues involved. Deanna and the colony leader have a relationship and we see her display a flaw, something that just doesnt happen often enough in the ST universe.

    I would believe that most people would mark it around a seven, but if you like a little intrigue and the subject matter then this is worth watching.
