||The action aboard the Voyager was a half-decent story, but we really did not need the Doctor's soap opera for the rest. Maybe he could benefit from a bit of real life, but either his perfect family or B'elanna's chaotic one. (N.B. She is not a particularly good source on the conventional family, she didn't have much of a normal childhood. Why not ask Paris who did?) I'm actually rather glad that we don't see the holo-family again, it was entirely pointless and could have been done much better. I don't watch sci-fi to see a domestic soap opera, but the action aboard ship redeems the episode just enough to keep a star.
