The Trekzone Review

Thanks to the BluRay release, I enjoyed the extended cut of this episode…

An episode about morals, and an illusion to The Doctor. My question is what ever happened to the precedent set from this episode? Is Starfleet still so close minded that the rights of an Android don’t even come to the fore when creating a hologram to serve in sickbay’s?

Data made a very good point at the beginning of this episode, if LaForge’s eyes are so much better than a humans… why doesn’t everyone have a pair?
