Exploring Tomorrow: The First Baby in Space aka Space Baby
So having slagged most of the episodes I end on one that actually wasn't too bad. The woman having a baby in space is up there because she's in the military and that's where they sent her. She's also the one who figures out the solution to the technical problem presented.
One issue they raise but don't solve is the issue of re-entry accelerations. Given that it will need to be able to survive nine (?) gees, how old will the baby have to be before it's not obviously going to kill it to subject it to re-entry accelerations?
(The US must have ended up spending a ton of cash on that kid)
