Quotes

Seven of Nine: What are you doing?
Harry Kim: Tying the transceiver into the holodeck's pattern buffer.
Seven of Nine: Those systems aren't compatible. You'll depolarise the relays.
Harry Kim: Starfleet wouldn't have sent this hologram if it weren't important. I'm sure it's worth a few burnt-out relays.
Seven of Nine: [there is a console-shattering kaboom. Seven examines the damage] You've overloaded the transceiver.
Harry Kim: But I saved the hologram!

There's evil afoot...and it's Barkley!
5 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, instead of the usual monthly transmission of letters from Starfleet, something very, very BIG arrives instead--a hologram! When they activate it, it's a holographic Lt. Barkley. However, this one is very little like the real Barkley. He's sophisticated, clever and very entertaining. The crew loves him. However, what no one on Voyager realizes is that he is also something else....EVIL!!! It seems that this hologram was NOT sent by Starfleet but was stolen by the Ferengi and they're going to use it to steal something. But what? And how did they get this technology? And, more importantly, how can they warn Voyager once the folks on Earth discover the plot?!

This is a very good episode and is worth seeing. Plus, it must have been fun to be able to expand the Barkley character through his emotive, self-assured and evil holograph. Well worth seeing.
