Episode by Episode - Star Trek: Enterprise

Season 3

Episode 62 Similitude


Such an odd episode.  A clone of Commander Tucker is made so he can receive a transplant.  The clone only lives a few weeks and has to be killed in order to save Tucker.  There are some weird sci-fi ethical questions about it.  Ultimately the clone chooses to sacrifice his life which only has like 30 days left anyway in order to save Tucker who has an entire human lifespan to live-out.  


It’s not as horrible as the Tuvix episode of Star Trek Voyager but it runs a fine line. Ultimately the episode is okay and touching at times.
