First Aired : 20 Jan 1999 Stardate : Unknown
Director : Mike Vejar Year : 2375

Does it strike anybody else as odd that the EMH, a program intended specifically for emergency medical situations, is designed in such a way that performing triage creates severe mental impairments? Triage is a standard medical practice used in emergency situations where the resources available are not adequate to treat all victims; essentially it divides the victims into three groups - those who have injuries minor enough that they can wait for later treatment, those who have injuries serious enough that they need immediate treatment, and those who have injuries so serious that they are allowed to die without treatment. It's a brutal thing to have to do, but it's done because there is literally no other choice in the situation. Why on Earth would the EMH of all people be unable to do it?
Great Moment : Janeway sitting with the EMH in the holodeck.
Body Count : The sanity of the EMH.
Factoid : Scarlett Pomers, who plays Naomi Wildman, has also appeared in "Touched by an Angel", "Martial Law", and the Julia Roberts film "Erin Brockovich".

This episode is a nominee for the DITL "Best of Trek" award.
