This is a game introduced by the hosts of The G&T Show. The premise is simple, your ship is on the verge of distruction and your group o five are the last aboard. However the lifepod only has room for four.
This week's theme is Doctors. Its up to you who to take and who to leave behind.
(Yes, we omitted a few options or simplicity's sake.)
Who do you bring and who goes down with the ship? Have fun!

Answer 1: Phlox and McCoy are both long-dead, meaning that they are probably part of the Doctor Zombie Invasion that overran my ship. In this case, the answer is to leave them both behind as they will both be equally tiresome and "brain nommy" the entire trip.
Answer 2: Crusher and Bashir will not be born for quite some time, meaning they are probably part of the Future Doctor Ghost Invasion that overran my ship. In this case, the answer is to leave them both behind as they will try to haunt our rations and smear ectoplasm all over my piloting console.
And I can only leave one behind, you say? I don't like this game!
Well, alright, I guess I'll take McCoy with me, cause you know, he only doctored his way up to the rank of admiral and frankly, misery loves company. Oh how much fun we'll have, picking on Bashir (useful when the tricorder runs out of go-juice) and Crusher, who really doesn't bring that much to the table, besides having spawned an annoying little brat that can travel through space, time and alternate dimensions on the power of Roddiechlorians alone. Could come in handy, I suppose, if you can put up with the travelling companion. (I do hope there's a phaser on this pod.)
That leaves Phlox minding the ship (be a pal, run to Engineering to see if I left the warpcore breach on), as it's highly unlikely I'll be setting the escape pod down anywhere that has a civilization in dire need of extinction.
Mcoy - Take, as an admiral he'll be grateful and help you up the ziggurat of command
Bashir - Take as hes a genetically augmented genius, useful if you land on a unihabited planet
Phlox - Take as last thing starfleet needs is to be accused of only saving humans
..and that leaves Crusher - Not that I have anything against her per se, but her son however...
Yeah, its petty but I'd close the airlock on Beverly - besides, Q or Picard would rescue her, no doubt via some crazy sci-fi magical hi jinx
Phlox stays. If we are doing this based on medical knowledge that they know in the show, well, he's 200 years behind, and the rest of the doctors would have trained on books he wrote, so they'll know everything he knows about all the weird crap he does.
Practically, everyone else is human, and he's an alien. It's the logistics are harder with him, plain facts.
