Remember that Star Trek original Miri, one of the most memorable episodes of
the bunch, where the people age very slowly, but some virus or something
kills people whenever they get well into adolescence, with no effect on
children. Consequently, the only inhabitants of the planet appear to be
children, and revolting bastards they are for the most part (".bonk bonk on
the head.") The apparently fifteen yr old Miri has it bad for Kirk, but he
doesn't get involved with older women.
Bones races to find a cure, but isn't sure what is the correct dose, so he
has to make a wild guess and hope for the best, then use it on himself,
otherwise they will all die. It works.
It is better to take a shot in the dark than to meekly die never having
fired one's weapon.
