"Star Trek: The Next Generation" Hollow Pursuits (TV Episode 1990) Poster

Trivia

The episode drew some early controversy as Barclay was perceived by viewers as reflecting a stereotypical Trekkie/Trekker (introverted personality, obsessive traits). Producers have maintained that Barclay was no such reflection, nor was the episode being intended as any sort of statement about the Star Trek fan base.
Holo-Wesley's appearance was based on a famous painting by Thomas Gainsborough called "The Blue Boy". His costume was copied in detail and references to the painter and the painting can be found in the script.
First appearance of Dwight Schultz as Reginald Barclay, who'd originally been intended to be a one-time character to get sent to a mental hospital over his holodeck addiction.
Dr. Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden) only appears as a holodeck creation.
