Review : Overall, not bad. While most is a bit bland, the look on the Doctor's face when he saw what Paris had done to his programme made it worth watching. Good marks to Robert Picardo once again. I think the Doctor is suffering from 'first book syndrome', where people's early work tends to be autobiographical and a bit naive. While he might be interested in high culture, lack of experience is a barrier (he has only lived seven years). The crew's conversations with home were interesting as well, and added colour. I wonder if Irene Hansen is related to the late Admiral Hansen in some way. Verdict, a reasonable episode.

Review : This is one of my favourite episodes of Trek. The holodeck "battle of the authors" is hilarious as Paris re-writes the Doctor's story, which is easily one of the best sequences in Trek, then suddenly we get some pathos and importance as Voyager holds council with Earth (a touch which I genuinely loved) to prove the Doctor should have the same rights as any life-form. This turns a comedy episode into a TNG-style classic. It jars a bit after the laughs of the first half but as usual it is well-played and I enjoyed every minute. Also, this is one of the only times we get to see a "mirror universe" version of Voyager, albeit as a holodeck story. "Remember, it's the Doctor's world, you're just living in it."
