    Summary

    First, suppose that the famous ship sailed by the hero Theseus in a great battle has been kept in a harbour as a museum piece. As the years go by some of the wooden parts begin to rot and are replaced by new ones. After a century or so, all of the parts have been replaced. Is the "restored" ship still the same object as the original?

    Second, suppose that each of the removed pieces were stored in a warehouse, and after the century, technology develops to cure their rotting and enable them to be put back together to make a ship. Is this "re-constructed" ship the original ship? And if so, is the restored ship in the harbour still the original ship too?

    Or...how do transporters really work?

    Summary

    Jim is pregnant. This is what he gets for participating in experimental medical studies. The other problem is that he doesn't know who the father is--and he doesn't even remember having sex with Spock. Spock remembers, but as there is less than a six percent chance the child is his, it's logical to keep the information to himself, right? Right.
