When I lived in East Texas, 'Y'all' was you, singular, and 'all y'all' was you, plural.  Just saying.

we Southerners use "y'all" as second person plural, but never singular.

People of every region have been known to make grammatical errors.  Although "y'all" probably started out to fill the role of second person plural pronoun, some people, even Southerners, likely misuse it for second person singular.  If enough people do that consistently enough, then it won't even be "wrong" anymore.

How bizarre is it to be talking about "grammatical errors" in regional
slang?

How old is McCoy in your series, Mr. Byrne?  What will be his state of mind in this era of Star Trek?

As noted, this series takes place between TOS and TMP, closer to TMP. So
Bones is whatever age he would have been then. And his state of mind --
well, you'll discover that as you read!

No "real medicine" in this, but I do try to make it SOUND real!

And that's what comicbooks are all about.

John Byrne... he will make you BELIEVE!

It sucks that Bones doesn't have the medical knowledge for Klingon anatomy.

Why would he need it in a time when Klingons were blood enemies of the "Earthers".

Because he's a doctor, he would at least be curious about their anatomy.  What you will learn some day, Michael, is that doctors care about saving lives, even lives of the enemy.

I'm not talking about Frank Burns, I'm talking about a character I love named McCoy, Leonard H, who was Chief Medical Officer of The USS Enterprise.  He, as a character, loved saving lives and he didn't care about political differences.  If a person, any person was hurt he would trywith the best of his medical knowledge to save them.
