Star Trek - Next Generation Scene
Sokol

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.


TOPICS: TV/Movies
KEYWORDS: dna; hair; scene; startrek

The episode was Star Trek: The Next Generation-“Unnatural Selection”. That should narrow it down.

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.

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.

Begin hijack.

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.

Eh, television.

End hijack.

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?

I believe the episode you’re looking for is GET A LIFE.

Either that or, HAVE YOU EVER KISSED A GIRL.

Here is a link to the first of a series of Youtube videos for the episode.

If you have any browser capture extensions, you can save them as local FLV or MP4 files.

What about when Kirk figured out you could find a cloaked bird of prey because it had to have a tailpipe?

Lots of face palms throughout Starfleet on THAT day!

Actually, Dr. Pulaski hated transporters, much like Dr. McCoy. It was Chief O’Brian and Lt Cmdr Data that came up with this particular solution. But, yes, it’s just a TV show, as they say on MST3K.

Wasn't that the episode when Arnie Becker showed up as Q?

This weekend at Dragoncon, the real Dr. Crusher said she couldn’t wait for everyone to have healthcare. Half of the room sounded thrilled.

A few...but I hated that season because of the switch with the Doctor. Crusher could be annoying but she had better chemistry with the entire cast. There are some good episodes that year but that casting ruins it for me.

Paulaski always made the bitch on me respond. Crusher was TOO human sometimes, but at least she wasn’t like fingernails scratching on a blackboard.

But Diana Muldaur was TOS. That's why they chose her.

The other half of the room knew that there is no "real" Dr. Crusher - she only exists in fiction, like the concept of people retaining their freedom and economic prosperity while having government healthcare.

She did draw a nearly endless stream of people at her autograph table. Wil Wheaton was another. It was amazing to watch people just stand there.

I got the one I was after and I am not an autograph nut. Getting to hear Martin Landau talk at a panel and a couple of minutes at his table was a real treat.

I think Jeri Ryan is highly overrated as hot...

Despite what Hollywood thinks...“hot” is not just being skinny with bolt on’s

I'd like to hear his thoughts on the "Space:2099" project.

LOL!

I was ok with "voyager" but the blatant sexual "doggy bone" they tossed in by booting the "keebler elf" in favor of "skinny, no personality and...bolts" was kind of an insult. It was like they decided ST fans could do without a plot if they had some space ta-tas to gaze upon.

Didn't work for me at all. ST "Enterprise" suffered even worse with the "hot vulcan" thing and even got canceled after fans walked following the first two seasons.

Don't mind the occasional "red meat" in the way of "heavenly bodies", but we want a good story along the lines of the original theme or it just doesn't work.

It may have come up in the panel I missed the day before due to the wife getting caught up in the Wil Wheaton experience. She was getting an autograph for a friend but the line was unreal.

>>> I think Jeri Ryan is highly overrated as hot...

Before her tour of duty with Starfleet, Ryan co-starred in a pretty good but failed sci-fi series called Dark Skies. Without the Wonderbra and other rubber-suit padding, she was a much more attractive person.

I absolutely hated season two because of Roddenberry’s shenanigans to put yet another of his old flames back to work. And it didn’t work, Muldaur had to go, and McFadden brought back. It’s actually too bad that GM didn’t find another steady gig in the interim.

It’s also too bad that her absence wasn’t used as a good reason to get rid of Wesley.

Now, back to fake real life of this online forum...

I hated the Data character!!!!!!!!!!
Seems that Star Fleet had such low personnel security standards that a 2 legged MAC could just saunter in and not only enlist in Star Fleet but get a commission.

Kirk would have told him to sit in the corner and disassemble himself!
