Materialising in an empty sickbay, the Doctor discovers that the ship has been abandoned following a Kazon attack. All is not as it seems, however, when Lieutenant Barclay arrives and informs him that he is actually Lewis Zimmerman – the creator of the EMH…
The Trekzone Review
The Doctor finally gets some screen time and loads of character explanation. We technically meet Lewis Zimerman and Barclay in Voyager. This episode reminds me of Frame of Mind from TNG, with the real reality a mystery.
Chakotay says what we’re all thinking – it doesn’t matter what you’re made of… it just matters that you are our friend. Well, the crew certainly don’t prove that early on… but they will in time. Other notes of interest are the Doctor being able to move about the ship, which he will next season.
