Re: ENT S1: Dear Doctor

Evoloution doesn't work that way.

The whole point of it is survival of the species and adaptions that get passed on.

I liken the whole 'Screw it, let'em die' to the 2013–2016 Ebola Epidemic.

The Prime Directive would have us sit back and go, "Well they're not exactly a warp (Western) civilzation and well maybe go-- I mean 'evoloution' has a divine plan for them. They might become the next Nazi germany or something if we save 'em. Screw'em let 'em die."

No, we as a western society went. "Oh no, people in trouble! Let us help!"

Re: DSC S1: Context Is for Kings

But her actions were not in defense.
She and Georgiou had no trouble stunning Klingons left and right, and she deliberately switched the phaser from 'blue = stun' to 'red = kill' when Georgiou was killed.

This was a calculated act that went against her *own* mission which was, "Nah let's not kill this guy but lets snag-n-bag him instead otherwise we make him a Martyr."

Any other XO would've got the job done, no matter how they felt.
Hell, even Colonel "Chug" Tigh in Battlestar would've got it done. Bitching and complaining all the way; but he still would've got the job done.

Her action to assault her CO when she essentially 'didn't get her own way' was impulsive and not what we've come to expect of a main character. Certainly not one we've been told is all that and a bag of chips.
