Devolving

Story: Genesis
Written By: Brannon Braga
Series: Star Trek: The Next Generation
Year: 1994

Braga does not understand genetics at all. You just can’t devolve like this. You can’t. We are far removed from our ancestors and you can’t just get a cold and revert back to previous links in the evolution chain.
Not to mention that there is no way I’m gonna buy that Troi devolves into a fucking iguana. NO WAY DID THE PEOPL OF BETAZED EVOLVE FROM IGUANAS. No way. Plus she is half human. Shouldn’t she devolve into a half iguana half monkey by this logic?

Braga does not understand genetics, and it is goddamned irritating. Read a fucking textbook Brannon!
