Moral :
Prejudice : A society should be judged by what it does for those worse off, not it's ability to rid it's self of them.
YATI : Watch Riker when he goes to meet Hannah Bates; head down, striding manfully forwards, he almost walks into a wall!

At one point Geordi complains that he's been without sleep for so long that his eyelids "feel like they have lead weights attached". Well why doesn't he just close them for a while then? He doesn't actually see out of his eyes, remember, so it makes no difference to him if he wants to walk around with them shut.
Great Moment : Geordi realising that the solution to the settlement's problems stems from his VISOR - something they would never invent because they engineer out disabilities like blindness.
Body Count : Zero.
Factoid : Hannah Bates's science lab is a re-dress of the movie bridge set.


While tracking a stellar core fragment, the Enterprise discovers a group of genetically engineered humans who fit perfectly into their artificial environment. But all is not well in paradise.
