Ship in a Bottle

TZ Release Date


US Release Date





During routine maintenance Barclay inadvertently releases Professor Moriarty from protected memory… aware of the passage of time and able to leave the holodeck, he takes control of the ship and demands his love, Countess Bartholomew, be transported into the real world too…

The Trekzone Review

An episode about holographic rights and sentience of holograms, we wouldn’t have known it at the time but everyone will forget about Moriarty’s plight here in future episodes (creation of the EMH, Voyager’s EMH’s struggle for rights in season 7 and Vic Fontaine in DS9.)

This is a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a holodeck, one that only Data can solve.
