Re: VOY S6: Virtuoso

The worst thing about this episode is that the Doctor is willing to leave Voyager without a surgeon. Tom Paris is a capable medic, but the EMH is the embodiment of 24th-century medicine. After everything they've done for him, he's willing to leave a crew of ~150 people to chase one fleeting love interest. This episode almost makes me lose any empathy I had for this character, and he's actually been one of my favorites because of his dry, witty humor. He's a hologram, he made a family once... What happened to them? If he wants a soulmate, he could ask the computer to make his holographic wife self-aware - if he even saved the program, that is. That leads me to wonder; His daughter died and his wife and son were distraught, did he abandon them too? Did he provide the emotional support they needed, or did he delete the program? How well do we really know the Doctor? I could go on, but I'd start digressing about his conduct in other episodes. He's still an interesting character, but this particular episode stinks. I much prefer the EMH's character development in episodes like Lifesigns. Lifesigns is one of the best episodes of the series. Danara Pel... now there was a real love for the Doctor. That was such a poignant episode, which is probably why I find Virtuoso so objectionable. Oh well, at least the singing is nice.
