Plot Hole
Wed, Apr 20, 2011, 4:41pm (UTC -6)
Re: VOY S2: Tuvix

Why do you people think Tuvix was "murdered"? And why don't you people see the plot hole that's bigger than the Delta Quadrant itself?

Earth to Trekkies/Trekkers, Tuvix was compromised by alien DNA. Name one instance in all of Star Trek when alien DNA, virus, consciousness, etc., was allowed to take take over a crew member.

Remember when Pulaski got rid of the old age virus by tranporting using her original DNA.

Remember when Data got rid of the dying scientist that transferred his consciousness.

Remember when the entire TOS Enterprise crew mutinied to a planet with "feel-good" spores and Kirk had to call Spock a half-breed to snap him out of it.

Remember when Riker was infected by a symbiont that was killing him, but Riker didn't mind because the symbiont's effect was to make the host feel at peace.

There are many other such episodes. Had to get rid of the alien presence in every one. So where does the sympathy for keeping Tuvix begin in the first place?

Plus, what about the benefits of cross-breeding plants or animals. The orchid had to be one of the greatest scientific discoveries ever. Now instead of pain-staking genetic enigeering that could take centuries to accomplish, just run what you want to hybridize through the transporter with the orchid. Anybody else see that angle?
