This one is so very well constructed and written that it makes the hit-and-miss augment-arch from Star Trek: Enterprise seem like a school play in comparison.

"Infiltrator" takes the idea of Federation's absolute and fearful ban on human genetic engineering and runs with it in a fresh, nonantagonistic way.
