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.

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 Bate's science lab is a re-dress of the movie bridge set.
Quote : "Who gave them the right to decide whether or not I should be here? Whether or not I might have something to contribute?" - Geordi to Hannah; regarding the settlement's decision to remove all disabilities from their offspring

Plotline
