Posted on 09/05/2011 11:26:22 AM PDT by Sokol
I am looking for a scene in one of the Star Trek (Next Generation) episodes. The scene has members of the crew going to the Doctor's (I think - maybe another character) room to look for a strand of hair to use to replicate her DNA. She is not on the ship and something has happened to the transporter. I can't remember all the details. I teach forensic science and want to use this for my class. If you know which episode, please let me know. Thanks for any help.
The episode was Star Trek: The Next Generation-Unnatural Selection. That should narrow it down.
I don’t recognize it off hand, I posted a thread on the Trekbbs to see if anyone does.
Click and see if there are any responses.
The episode is called Unnatural Selection. The reason the doctor needs the strand of hair is because she is infected with a virus that causes rapid (as in hours) aging, followed by death. Data and LaForge use the DNA in the hair follicle to filter the doctor’s DNA from the virus.
It’s from Season two, and the doctor is Pulaski.
Memory Alpha write up on the episode:
I believe the episode you are looking for is a second season TNG episode called ‘Unnatural Selection’ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0708837/
I always liked Dr. Pulaski better than Dr. Crusher.
I think Pulaski died falling a turbolift shaft.
Never liked that episode.
Carried through to its logical conclusion, the doctor figured out how to use the transporter to cure pretty much anything and everything, and then conveniently forgot about it.
You can watch ‘Unnatural Selection’ instantly on Netflix but I’m not sure how you would capture a screenshot. It depends on your browser, Netflix, etc.
Doesn't that describe a typical Star Trek TNG plot?
“Great joy and gratitude”....
Heh, no trekheads here.
I believe the episode you’re looking for is GET A LIFE.
Either that or, HAVE YOU EVER KISSED A GIRL.
If you have any browser capture extensions, you can save them as local FLV or MP4 files.
That was ST:NG episode where there was a transporter malfunction.
