This story is patterned after a James Garner
film 36 Hours
(1965). In that film Garner's character has injured and wakes up in an U.S. Army hospital. He's told the war is over. In actuality the hospital is in Germany and all the people in it are Germans. It's an elaborate ruse to get Garner to talk about the invasion of Europe. He's not pushed, they talk to him about it hoping he will give a location and or date. This is not the first time a Star Trek story line has recycled this idea; there were similar episodes in Star Trek
(1966), and Star Trek: The Next Generation
(1987). See more
Please state the nature of the medical emergency.
