Re: ENT S1: Dear Doctor

Ugh. I really wish, at least once, Star Trek could have gotten evolution right. This episode is the worst offender - even worse than "Threshold" - because where "Threshold" is silly nonsense, "Dear, Doctor" is vile nonsense. This isn't just a low point for Star Trek, it's probably a low point for all of televised drama. I just can't see any other series using bad science to justify genocide and the fans not, en masse, crying foul. It's an embarrassment.

Apparently it needs to be shouted from the rooftops: Evolution is NOT predestined! It's just what replicating molecules tend do over long periods of time. Genes don't think - they don't decide on some course and then move in that direction. The idea that a species could be "on the verge of an evolutionary breakthrough" is nonsense.
