Storyline

The Doctor is stolen from Voyager by an alien who sells him and his mobile emitter to a hospital on a densely-populated planet. He is activated in a cramped room filled with sick people and is made to treat them using only very basic equipment. When the administrators of the facility realise how skilled the Doctor is, they move him to another area of the hospital to treat more deserving patients. The Doctor is appalled to learn that the medical care that people are given is linked to their status in society and hatches a plan to make things a little less discriminatory. Written by Jonathan Stevenson

Medical Ethics Put to the Test
15 September 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A shyster kidnaps the Doc and sells him to a hospital ship. While on board he comes to realize that there is a hierarchical method of treating patients. The poor and infirm are in the red zone and are doomed, for the most part, while the "Blue" patients get elective surgeries and injections. The Doctor must deal with treating the weak, but in the process makes a costly mistake.
