Trivia

As in The Next Generation episode "The Measure Of A Man", the rights of non-organic lifeforms are at issue in this episode. While it had been determined that Data, although being a machine, was not Starfleet property and thus had the right to choose what to do with his life. It was not acknowledged in this episode that the Doctor is a person, but he was rather granted the status of an artist. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
The Doctor: In the beginning, there is darkness, the emptiness of a matrix waiting for the light. Then, a single photon flares into existence, then another. Soon, thousands more. Optronic pathways connect, subroutines emerge from the chaos, and a holographic consciousness is born. I awaken into this world fully programed, yet completely innocent, unaware of the hardships I'll endure, or the great potential I will one day fulfill. - Computer, save revisions and open Chapter One.

the worst of the worst
9 April 2006 | by (wichita, USA) – See all my reviews

First off, I don't like giving bad reviews. This one however, merits an exception. All it is is a bad rendition of other episodes. It made an attempt at Living Witness (which is quite possibly the BEST voyager ep there is by the way) failed all Mirror Mirror aspects, (the alternate versions eps). And the last half of the ep was, to me, an insult to the greatness of TNG's "The Measure of a Man". I won't go into that for fear of spoiling. You'll just have to see for yourself. (shudder).

The problem in the ep, from the characters Point of view is "how could the doctor write anything so demeaning to us?". MY question is how could the actors agree to anything this demeaning to them! Adding this to the other eps around it gives us only one more question. And that is, quite simply, what were these people thinking?! 1 of 5 stars. And that's only because I can't put zero.
