Dr. McCoy May Have Gotten His Medical Degree From a Diploma Mill

We love Bones but we're starting to worry about the old country doctor.

In the last episode, Return to Tomorrow, Kirk and company beam through 100 miles of solid rock at the behest of a millennia-old non-corporeal intelligence.  What strikes Bones about all this?  The fact that the super orbs apparently have air conditioning.  The air is fresh.  They must recirculate it.  Gosh, Bones!  Maybe they have in-door toilets too!

Okay, maybe it was just a one time slip...  But then in the following episode the Enterprise tries to reach a Federation researcher who has vanished.  No answer the first time they signal him?  "Must be dead," says McCoy.  For a man devoted to saving lives, Leonard seems a little snappy to write people off just because they don't answer the telephone.
