Data Stellare 42494.8: L'Enterprise riceve una chiamata di soccorso dalla Lantree e subito dopo ne perde il contatto. La nave federale si trova a poca distanza, perciò Picard decide di investigare. Sulla Lantree vengono trovati morti 26 marinai, apparentemente a causa di un invecchiamento naturale. In realtà la causa può essere ricercata nella stazione di ricerche genetiche Darwin del pianeta Gagarin IV da cui la nave proveniva.
  • Nello script il bambino della stazione Darwin modificato geneticamente viene chiamato David.
  • Era davvero necessario distruggere la Lantree dopo che, usando il teletrasporto sono riusciti a trovare il modo di ripristinare il DNA originale delle persone affette dal virus? Se la causa della mutazione genetica sono gli anticorpi, non sarebbe bastato un irraggiamento della nave con delle radiazioni letali per gli organismi ma che mantenessero integra la nave e i suoi sistemi?
  • Nello script la data stellare dell'episodio è 42303.7.
  • Nello script il nome della dottoressa Sara Kingsley è Sara Mandel, il cui cognome ricorda quello di Gregor Mendel (1822-1884), noto per i suoi studi sull'ereditarietà genetica.
  • Nello script sono due i bambini della stazione Darwin ad essere teletrasportati sull'Enterprise: una femmina di nome Astarte e un maschio di nome David.
  • Nello script, al posto di O'Brien era prevista una certa Guardiamarina Rina, un nuovo ufficiale dell'Enterprise in servizio in sala macchine; è lei che suggerisce di usare lo shuttle come ambiente isolato per gli esami che deve condurre la Pulaski (nell'episodio il suggerimento viene da La Forge) ed è sua l'idea di usare la traccia del teletrasporto per ripristinare il DNA nei soggetti infetti (nell'episodio l'idea è di O'Brien). Nella sezione Script ci sono le scene in cui compare, compresi i due episodi qui sopra descritti.
  • Nello script di Unnatural Selection la Lantree viene definita come un vascello di classe R, mentre nella versione definitiva dell'episodio è di classe 6. [USS Lantree NCC-1837]
  • Picard ordina di dirigersi su Gagarin IV a curvatura 7 [T:10:11].
  • Il codice di sicurezza utilizzato da Picard per accedere alla Lantree è «omicron omicron alpha yellow daystar 2-7».
  • Quando si aprono le porte dell'hangar navette 3, sulla porta c'è l'etichetta 11|1825 e di fianco si intravede la scritta HOLOGRAPHIC ENVIRONMENT HOLODECK 2 [T:20:58].
  • È curioso che nel XXIV secolo non esistano antidolorifici contro un'infiammazione artritica. La Pulaski soffre dei dolori anche dopo essersi iniettata qualcosa con un hypospray.
  • La dottoressa Kingsley dice di avere 31 anni invece dei 35 della versione originale [T:11:40].
  • Quando la dottoressa Pulaski dice «Capitano, vale la pena di rischiare», il Capitano risponde «È una decisione difficile»; nella versione originale la risposta di Picard è «There's always risk, Doctor». [T:13:57].
  • A [T:24:44] Data, dopo aver analizzato la dottoressa Pulaski sulla navetta, dice: «Sì. Le sue condizioni sono assolutamente stabili, dottoressa» e la Pulaski risponde: «Forse sono un androide anche io, Data»; nella versione originale il dialogo è: «All systems functioning within normal specifications, Doctor» «The manufacturer will be pleased to hear it».
  • Quando Data chiede alla dottoressa «Quali sono le sue condizioni?» la Pulaski risponde «Devo avere qualche circuito fuori fase», mentre in originale dice «Not exactly up to factory specs» [T:26:24].
  • La dottoressa dice «Il dolore è intollerabile, grazie», mentre in originale, al contrario, dice «The pain is tolerable» [T:26:29].
  • Nomination per l'Emmy del 1989 per la miglior acconciatura (Richard Sabre e tutto il suo gruppo).
Picard (alla dottoressa Pulaski): And, Doctor, God knows, I'm not one to discourage input, but I would appreciate it if you let me finish my sentences once in a while. [T:17:30]
Data: All systems functioning within normal specifications, Doctor.
Pulaski: The manufacturer will be pleased to hear it. [T:24:44]
Pulaski: If I live through this, I'll have a much better understanding of geriatrics. [T:38:21]
Pulaski: Scientists believe no experiment is a failure, that even a mistake advances the evolution of understanding. [T:41:04]
  • Nel teaser, al posto della scena del colloquio nell'ufficio del Capitano tra Deanna e Picard riguardo alla dottoressa Pulaski, prima che il Capitano venga convocato in plancia per la ricezione della chiamata di soccorso della Lantree c'è la seguente scena nella quale viene introdotta Rina, una nuova Guardiamarina dell'Enterprise:
            INT. TEN-FORWARD
    
            COMMANDER RIKER, GEORDI and several male crewmembers
            from Engineering are seated around a table near the
            bow ports. The center of attention is clearly the new
            Specialist Trainee, RINA, an arrestingly beautiful
            young woman.
    
                                            RINA
                            ... warp drive theory always came
                            easy for me, but I'm looking
                            forward to some hands on
                            experience.
    
                                            RIKER
                            I'm sure we'll be able to
                            accommodate you.
    
            Rina is well aware that Riker is flirting with her,
            but she's not flattered. She concentrates on finishing
            her drink.
    
            Geordi, on the other hand, seems oblivious to the
            tension.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            I know what you mean. It's a
                            really electrifying experience
                            to be down there where the action
                            is. Whenever I push the drive
                            past warp six I still get a lump
                            in my throat.
    
            Riker takes Rina's empty glass from her hand.
    
                                            RIKER
                                    (standing)
                            Can I get you another?
    
                                            RINA
                            Tell me Commander. Is it the
                            custom on the Enterprise for the
                            First Officer to wait on
                            trainees?
    
                                            RIKER
                                    (smiling)
                            If they were all like you, I'm
                            certain it would be.
    
                                            GEORDI
                                    (to Rina)
                            What's it like these days at the
                            academy? Is Tsiolkovski still
                            teaching Propulsion Theory?
    
                                            RINA
                            Are you kidding? They'll have
                            to tear down the building around
                            him. The first time I saw him...
    
            MOVE WITH RIKER as he heads for the bar carrying two
            empty glasses. He slides them across the bar to an
            n.d. bartender.
    
                                            RIKER
                            Same again.
    
            In the b.g. we see DOCTOR KATHERINE PULASKI leave her
            table and approach Riker.
    
                                            PULASKI
                            Good to see you, Commander. When
                            you missed your test this morning
                            we all feared the worst.
    
                                            RIKER
                                    (turning)
                            My apologies, Doctor. A minor
                            crisis...
                                    (beat)
                            in Engineering.
    
                                            PULASKI
                                    (not buying it)
                            You know, a Rheinman tissue
                            sample sounds a good deal worse
                            than it is. I can assure you
                            there's no discomfort involved.
    
                                            RIKER
                            It's not that! It's just... my
                            duties are so diverse.
                                    (beat)
                            Suppose we leave the appointment
                            open?
    
                                            PULASKI
                            Spontaneity is the sand in the
                            clockworks of science.
    
                                            RIKER
                            But it's just an unimportant
                            detail...
    
            A raised eyebrow from Pulaski tells Riker this is a
            dead-end.
    
                                            PULASKI
                            If I didn't consider it important
                            I wouldn't insist. Don't force
                            me to relieve you of duty to make
                            my point.
    
                                            RIKER
                            You can't be --
                                    (beat)
                            I'll work something out. But
                            my schedule is tight for the next
                            three or four days...
    
                                            PULASKI
                                    (smiles)
                            So I see.
    
            They both glance toward the table where Rina and Geordi
            are still in conversation.
    
            BEYOND THE PORTS the stars streak toward us at warp
            speed.
    
            Rina has a clear view.
    
                                            RINA
                            Beautiful, isn't it?
    
            GEORDI'S POV -- He "sees" the ship's navigational
            shield as a gossamer scrim of shimmering color, and
            beyond, countless waves of energy bursting from
            exploding suns.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            The most beautiful thing I know.
    
            ON RINA as she turns to face him. She's not used to
            hearing men talk like this.
  • Nello script una squadra di ricognizione formata da Riker, Worf, Data e altri due membri dell'equipaggio si teletrasporta sulla Lantree per verificare la situazione a bordo, mentre nell'episodio la ricognizione avviene collegandosi al visore della plancia. I corpi dei membri dell'equipaggio della Lantree vengono teletrasportati a bordo dell'Enterprise e la dottoressa Pulaski ne esegue l'autopsia.
  • Nello script Worf, a bordo della Lantree, attiva il sistema di autodistruzione della nave prima che l'Enterprise si diriga su Gagarin IV, meta dell'ultimo scalo della Lantree. Il codice di riconoscimento e autorizzazione che usa è «Codename Firestorm. Access A-D-three-three-two-four-nine».
  • Nello script Riker, nonostante il via libera di Picard, tenta comunque di impedire alla dottoressa Pulaski di prendere lo shuttle per eseguire i test su David. La dottoressa Pulaski, prontamente, lo solleva dal suo incarico, dichiarandolo non idoneo:
        He (Data) starts to board as Riker rushes into the shuttle bay.
    
                                            RIKER
                            Doctor, what's going on?
    
                                            PULASKI
                            We're performing the experiment
                            aboard the shuttlecraft.
    
                                            RIKER
                            The captain approved this?
    
                                            PULASKI
                            Yes. Now if you'll clear the
                            area, please; we haven't much
                            time.
    
                                            RIKER
                            Doctor, I can't allow you to risk
                            yourself like this.
                                    (to com panel)
                            Captain, this is Riker --

                            Commander Riker... that item in
                            your medical record is still
                            unresolved, if I'm not mistaken?
    
                                            RIKER
                            What does that...
                                    (dawning realization)
                            You can't be serious.
    
                                            PULASKI
                                    (to com panel)
                            Computer, this is Chief Medical
                            Officer Pulaski.
                            I'm relieving Commander William
                            Riker from active duty for
                            medical reasons effective
                            immediately.
                                    (to Data)
                            Let's go.
    
            Riker is stunned. Doctor Pulaski enters the
            shuttlecraft. Data looks at Riker with a shrug. He
            follows Pulaski in and the hatch closes behind them.

            Riker jumps to the com panel.

            Dismayed, Riker joins the other crewmembers moving quickly
            to the air lock.
  • L'effetto del comando della Pulaski si rivelava in una scena dello script, quando Riker cerca di accedere all'alloggio della dottoressa per cercare frammenti del suo DNA:

            is locked. Riker speaks to the com panel.
    
                                            RIKER
                                    (to com panel)
                            This is an emergency! Unlock
                            Medical Officer Pulaski's
                            quarters!

                            Riker, William T., relieved of
                            active duty on

                            Allow me, sir.
  • Quando la dottoressa Pulaski viene finalmente teletrasportata a bordo, Riker si premura di andarle incontro per riottenere la qualifica di comando:
            Everyone rushes to welcome the CMO back.
    
            And Riker is ready -- anxious -- to bite the bullet.
    
                                            RIKER
                            Doctor... I'm ready to take the
                            Rheinman test.
    
            Pulaski looks at him quizzically. Has she forgotten?
    
                                            PULASKI
                            Glad you reconsidered, Commander.
                                    (to com panel)
                            This is Chief Medical Officer
                            Pulaski. Commander Riker is
                            restored to active duty effective
                            immediately.
                                    (to Riker)
                            My schedule's a little tight.
                                    (smiling)
                            What do you say we put it off
                            for a day or so?
    
            Picard is at the doorway. Pulaski catches up with him,
            and they exit together.
  • Di seguito le scene in cui compare nello script la Guardiamarina Rina e che, per il semplice motivo per cui il personaggio è stato cancellato, non compaiono nell'episodio. In alcune di queste scene Rina non ha battute, ma mostrano solo quanto l'equipaggio era interessato a lei:
            INT. ENGINEERING
    
            KLAXONS continue as the crew moves to alert stations.

            Geordi replaces an n.d. crewmember at the command console.
    
                                            RIKER (V.O.)
                                    (from com panel)
                            Give us maximum warp.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            Maximum warp, sir.
                                    (to crew)
                            Let's show 'em what we've got.
    
            The crew springs to action. Rina is electrified.
    
                                            GEORDI (CONT.)
                                    (to Rina)
                            Go to the backpanels and give
                            me a direct reading of the
                            dilithium temperature spread.
    
            INT. ENGINE ROOM
    
            Rina enters...
    
            And up on the catwalk, one of the crewmember is distracted
            by her; he trips, and tumbles over the railing onto
            the main deck.
    
            The automatic ALARM SOUNDS. Rina and several others
            rush to the man's aid. His leg is broken.
    
            Geordi runs in.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            What happened?
    
                                            CREWMEMBER
                            My fault, sir. Missed the turn.
    
            Geordi looks up at the catwalk, then down at the
            crewmember. Then he looks at Rina.
    
                                            GEORDI
                                    (pained)
                            Ensign... maybe you better stay
                            in the control room.
    
            Rina recoils as if she'd been slapped. But she says
            nothing. Wounded, she gets to her feet and exits.
    
    
    
            INT. ENGINEERING
    
            Riker talks to Geordi. Rina is here as well.
    
                                            RIKER
                            The only way we can wind up in
                            the same starfield is if you
                            bring us out of warp speed at
                            precisely the same instant as
                            the Lantree.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            First I have to get control of
                            the her engines. Very tricky.
    
                                            RIKER
                            That's why we gave you the job.
                                    (friendly pat)
                            Let me know as soon as you're
                            set.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            Will I be on the away team?
    
                                            RIKER
                                    (aware of Rina)
                            Too dangerous for a valuable man
                            like you.
                                    (smiles)
                            Fortunately, first officers are
                            expendable.
    
            He starts out, then turns to Rina.
    
                                            RIKER (cont.)
                            Just in case we don't make it
                            back...
                                    (kisses her hand)
                            It was a pleasure.
    
            He exits.
    
            Geordi turns to the crew.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            I'll man the bridge station.
                            Our first problem is to gain
                            control of the Lantree's drives.
                                    (to Rina)
                            Come on. You'll get a chance
                            to see what the bridge is like
                            on alert.
    
            Her eyes widen.
        
            INT. BRIDGE
    
            The first team is on the bridge as Geordi enters,
            followed by Rina.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            Ready to give it a try, Captain.
    
            Geordi sits at the console with Rina watching over his
            shoulder.
    
                                                    GEORDI
                            First we have to download the
                            Starfleet access codes for the
                            Lantree...
                                    (punches buttons)
    
            Not even Picard is immune to Rina's beauty.
    
                                            PICARD
                                    (smiling)
                            Ensign?
    
            Rina is flattered at being noticed by the captain, but
            she's still trying to keep an eye on what Geordi is
            doing.
    
                                            RINA
                            Yes, sir.
    
                                            PICARD
                            Perhaps you'd like to take a look
                            from down here.
                                    (indicates the area
                                     in front of the
                                     viewscreen)
    
            Frustrated again; but she has no choice.
    
                                            RINA
                            Thank you, Captain.
    
    
    
            INT. ENGINEERING
    
            Geordi approaches the maintenance table where Rina is
            working on an exotic piece of equipment about the size
            of a basketball. Two enthralled ENGINEERING CREWMEMBERS
            are watching her work.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            Find it?
    
                                            RINA
                            All set. It was the sensor
                            contact.
    
                                            GEORDI
                                    (overlapping)
                            -- sensor contact.
                                    (smiling)
                            Just like you said it would be.
                            Let's get it back in the panel
                            and do a quick line test.
    
                                            RINA
                            Yes, sir!
    
            Rina lifts the unit off the table. The two crewmembers
            rush to help her carry it -- and the delicate device
            is knocked from Rina's hands. Geordi lunges and
            manages to catch it inches from the deck. Slowly he
            gets to his feet, trying to check his anger.
    
                                            GEORDI
                                    (to Rina)
                            Come with me.
    
            The embarrassed crewmembers begin packing up the test
            equipment as Rina follows Geordi into the corridor.
    
            INT. ENGINEERING - EQUIPMENT BAY
    
            Geordi and Rina are working together to re-install the
            unit.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            Running the Engineering Section
                            is no different than running the
                            drive system. I've got to keep
                            everything in balance. To get
                            maximum efficiency out of --
    
                                            RINA
                            Don't bother, I've heard it all
                            before. It's not your problem,
                            anyway. It's me.
    
            Geordi turns and studies her. He doesn't need to "see"
            her face to read the disappointment in her voice. It
            makes what he has to say next even harder.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            That's right. You've got plenty
                            of aptitude, but you're
                            attitude's not makin' it.
    
                                            RINA
                            What do you know about my
                            attitude? How'd you like it if
                            people always behaved as if
                            you're some kind of freak?!
    
            Geordi finishes the installation. He closes the access
            panel a little harder than he needs to.
    
                                            GEORDI
                                    (tapping his VISOR)
                            What do you think this is? My
                            ticket to success?
    
            He starts past her, but she reaches out and grabs his
            arm.
    
                                            RINA
                            Wait.
                                    (withdraws her hand)
                            I'm... sorry. Maybe I'm the one
                            who's blind.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            What you are is maybe the most
                            talented engineer to come out
                            of the Acadamy since... well
                            since me. Doing this job's in
                            your blood. Now all we've got
                            to do is convince the rest of
                            'em.
                                    (extends his hand)
                            Deal?
    
                                            RINA
                                    (shakes his hand)
                            Deal.
    
    
    
            INT. ENGINEERING CONTROL ROOM
    
            Geordi is studying a PADD. He's troubled. Rina senses
            something is wrong.
    
                                            RINA
                            What's the it?
    
                                            GEORDI
                                    (glances up)
                            Our error rate is up nearly forty
                            percent.
    
            She looks at him squarely.
    
                                            RINA
                            You mean: since I came aboard.
    
            She's angry. She's about to reply, but she's
            interrupted by Pulaski, who comes storming into the
            control room.
    
                                            PULASKI
                            I need your help. I've got very
                            little time. I've got to find
                            a way to test the children, to
                            make sure they're harmless. And
                            I need a fail-safe environment.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            The problem is, there's no area
                            on the ship that can be sealed
                            off with absolute certainty.
    
                                            PULASKI
                            What about the Sickbay?
                                    (glances at Rina)
                            Doesn't the Sickbay have
                            isolated systems?
    
                                            RINA
                            The Sickbay has independant
                            systems, but it's not possible
                            to totally cut it off from the
                            rest of the ship. The only
                            truely independent environment
                            would be the shuttlecraft, or
                            something like --
    
                                            PULASKI
                            The shuttlecraft?
                                    (to Geordi)
                            Why didn't you say so?
    
    
    
            INT. OBSERVATION LOUNGE
    
            Picard and Riker are alone in the room, facing each
            other across the table.
    
                [ cut ]
            
            The door opens and Troi enters, followed by Geordi and
            Rina. They take their seats. Niether Picard nor Riker
            comment on Rina's presence.
    
                                            WESLEY (V.O.)
                                    (from com panel)
                            Captain, Shuttle One is decending
                            to Gagarin Four.
    
                                            PICARD
                                    (to com panel)
                            Thank you, Mister Crusher.
                                    (to the group)
                            The medical emergency at Darwin
                            Station is ongoing. We'll
                            continue to assist, but our
                            immediate concern is the
                            evacuation of our two officers.
                            Anyone?
    
                                            TROI
                            Shouldn't Kate be involved in
                            this?
    
                                            PICARD
                            Judging from what we saw on the
                            Lantree, Doctor Pulaski may not
                            be able to help herself.
    
                                            TROI
                                    (beat)
                            I suggest transporting them both
                            back to the ship. We should use
                            whatever time we have to seek
                            the best medical resources
                            available.
    
                                            RIKER
                            The transporter won't protect
                            us. The children went through
                            the transporter and still
                            infected Doctor Pulaski.
    
            Geordi raps the table.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            The bio-filter can be adjusted.
                            We could alter the filter to
                            screen out whatever it is that's
                            causing...
    
                                            PICARD
                            Precisely. We can't protect
                            ourselves against the unknown.
                            What we need is a filter that
                            isn't bio-dependent.
    
            They ponder. Finally,
    
                                            RINA
                            What about the "trace?"
    
            Everyone turns to Rina, their faces reflecting degrees
            of skepticism.
    
                                            RIKER
                            The transporter trace?
    
                                            RINA
                            The transporter keeps a computer
                            record of every transmission,
                            a footprint if you will. Usually
                            it's only stored for security
                            purposes, but if we used the
                            trace data to control the
                            reconstitution process...
    
                                            PICARD
                                    (to Geordi)
                            Is that possible?
    
                                            GEORDI
                            I hate to admit it, but it never
                            occured to me. All I can tell
                            you is she hasn't been wrong yet.
    
                                            PICARD
                            Very well. Thank you Ensign... ?
    
    
    
            INT. ENGINEERING
    
            Geordi, Rina and the crew are making preparations to
            get underway.
    
            Picard charges in with Data following.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            Sir?
    
            Picard moves past Geordi to Rina.
    
                                            PICARD
                            Ensign, I need your opinion.
    
                                            RINA
                                    (taken aback)
                            Sir?
    
                                            PICARD
                            You said the transporter could
                            be altered to filter out changes
                            in Doctor Pulaski.
    
                                            RINA
                            If we'd had the trace...
    
                                            PICARD
                            Well it turns out the changes
                            are in her DNA. If we used a
                            sample of the doctor's DNA --
                            say from a blood test -- that
                            was taken before --
    
                                            RINA
                            Could we filter out her genetic
                            alterations? Absolutely!
    
                                            PICARD
                            You're picking up some bad
                            habits, Ensign, but yes, you took
                            the words right out of my mouth.
                                    (beat)
                            Can you make the modifications?
    
                                            RINA
                            Of course!
    
                                            PICARD
                            Make it so.
    
            He exits with Data.
    
            Rina is dumbstruck. She looks at Geordi.
    
                                            GEORDI
                                    (smiles)
                            Hop to it Ensign. You've got
                            work to do.
    
    
    
            INT. CORRIDOR
    
            Geordi and Rina are walking together.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            Looks like you'll be going to
                            your next assignment with a
                            captain's commendation in your
                            record.
    
                                            RINA
                            Thanks to you. And the way
                            you... see things.
                                    (turns to him)
                            Tell me. When you look at me,
                            what do you see?
    
                                            GEORDI
                            To me beauty is a constantly
                            changing thing. Sometimes people
                            have it and sometimes they don't.
                            It all depends on their energy.
                                    (beat)
                            I see your energy and it's
                            beautiful. But it comes from
                            within.
    
                                            RINA
                            You're the only poetic chief
                            engineer I've ever heard of.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            And you're the most able trainee
                            I've ever met.
                                    (kisses her hand)
                            To quote our first officer, "It's
                            been a pleasure."
    
            He looks up, but she's still holding his hand.
    
                                            RINA
                            Technically, I'm off duty.
    
                                            GEORDI
                                    (beat)
                            Technically, so am I.
    
            They have arrived at the entrance to her room. They
            look at each other for a moment.
    
                                            RINA
                            Maybe you'd like to come in.
                            I've got a fabulous collection
                            of antique star drive drawings.
    
                                            GEORDI
                            Sounds riveting.
    
            The door opens. They enter.
    
            As the door closes, we see her arms encircle him, and
            they kiss.
