Re: VOY S5: Latent Image

EMH: I don't mean to seem unfeeling, but I'm programmed to accept the loss of a patient with professional detachment.

Why would he go insane over it then? Because he had to make a choice? Seems a bit farfetched.

And in 'Darkling' the Doc also goes insane, after adding things to his program, and has no problem altering his program to fix himself, removing the thing that was causing him to go mental. So what's the big deal about altering it now and removing something to avoid going insane yet again?

And when Janeway asks Seven for advice....

JANEWAY: I'm having trouble with the nature of individuality.
SEVEN: You require a philosophical discussion?
JANEWAY: There's a time and a place for it. This is one of them. After I freed you from the Collective, you were transformed. It's been a difficult process. Was it worth it?
SEVEN: I had no choice.
JANEWAY; That's not what I asked you.
SEVEN: If I could change what happened, erase what you did to me, would I? No.

After that, Janeway decides not to interfere with the Doc's program, when she just got the exact opposite advice from Seven. She was asking if Seven regrets being forced to be altered, and Seven says she wouldn't change what happened, in other words saying 'I'm glad you forced me'. So after that, Janeway should have forced the Doc to be altered for his own good. Not the complete opposite. Makes no sense.

And this episode should never have existed anyway, because he could have let one of them die, then use Borg nanoprobes to bring the other back. But Voyager forgot that episode exists I guess. Or how about put one in stasis for a few minutes? There is no reason for one of them to die at all, except to force this insanity on the Doc.

2 1/2 stars.
