Season Ep :
I'm really getting sick and tired of the way Enterprise is abusing Vulcans. Now we find that the supposedly logical species that values "infinite diversity in infinite combinations" above all else practices widespread discrimination, to the point that they are apparently willing to let a whole section of their society die out. How can you claim to value diversity and practice eugenics at the same time? And if you want to claim that the IDIC philosophy hasn't evolved at this point, sorry - the IDIC symbol has been seen several times on Enterprise, including in this episode.
Great Moment :
I'm not a great fan of Jolene Blalock, but she does a great job in this episode.
Body Count :
The last shreds of my respect for Vulcans.
This is, of course, a thinly veiled message about HIV sufferers.
We learn that T'Pol contracted a disease through the mind meld she underwent in "Fusion". But the Vulcans despise those who can initiate melds, and refuse to treat anybody with the disease...
