The Doctor is stolen from Voyager by an alien who sells him and his mobile emitter to a hospital on a densely-populated planet. He is activated in a cramped room filled with sick people and is made to treat them using only very basic equipment. When the administrators of the facility realise how skilled the Doctor is, they move him to another area of the hospital to treat more deserving patients. The Doctor is appalled to learn that the medical care that people are given is linked to their status in society and hatches a plan to make things a little less discriminatory. Written by

When Chellick has the Doctor restricted to Level Blue, the Allocator transfers the Doctor around Level Blue as if Level Blue had holo emitters, in which case, the Doctor would not need his mobile emitter. See more
You know, Doctor, one way to increase your allocation of resources on Level Blue would be to increase the number of patients. I know at least a dozen people who should be treated for... arterial aging. Saving their lives would be just a side effect.
Hmm... Perhaps we should have them transfered to Level Blue.
If you're looking for a second opinion, I concur.
Well... Chellick, what do you think?
We'd have to transfer you to Level Blue as well. You'd get your cytoglobin.
