Re: TNG S4: The Host

All of this bothers me. They don't do bio scans as a matter of standard procedure when an alien comes on board? Is trill not a federation planet? they have no idea about the trill/symbiont situation? None of this makes sense. Essentially this dude has a severe medical condition he's hiding. Beverly is conflicted about who she actually fell in love with? He was obviously deceptive and lied about his "condition". To me his dishonesty alone is enough reason to discontinue any romantic relationship. Regardless of where the slug is.

This is the kind of thing where a person's consciousness is being transferred. Typically people don't fall in love with a person's consciousness. Would she still feel the same if his consciousness was transferred into a computer? Hell no. Personality, consciousness or whatever is just one component of romantic attraction. Physical attractiveness, smells, pheromones, body language are all necessary to establish romantic feelings. The story is severely flawed and poorly written. Two thumbs down.

I like "half a life" much better.
