Dr. Danara Pel: Before I met you, I was just a disease. But now, everything's different. When people look at me, they don't see a disease anymore. They see a woman - a woman you made, a woman you love, a woman you're not afraid to touch.
The Doctor: Danara, I was never afraid to touch you.
Dr. Danara Pel: Why? Because you're a doctor?
The Doctor: Because I love you.

The Doctor falls in love.
15 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the episode begins, Voyager finds a small Vidiian vessel with a faint life sign. The passenger, Dr. Danara Pel, is dying and the holo Doctor works on trying to save her. However, she's awfully far gone so he does something radical--and transfers her consciousness into a hologram version of her--one that is healed and beautiful. However, over the course of the show something strange happens--the Doctor finds himself drawn to Dr. Pel and it's soon obvious that he's in love. Naturally, this relationship is unconventional....but is it even possible? And, if so, will she reciprocate?

There are two other plots running throughout this episode. First, Paris continues behaving like a nasty butt-head--particularly towards Commander Chakotay. And, when Chakotay tries to find out what's happening, Paris is extremely rude and combative. Second, the weasel, Lucas, is still working for the Kazon and these baddies are trying to get him to damage Voyager. Interestingly, in the near future, both these subplots will converge.

This episode clearly gives the Doctor the greatest opportunity to express himself, grow as a character and become more human. As always, it's great seeing him open up as a character. The other plots are also quite good but these are things you'll need to just accept and wait for their eventual resolution. All in all, one of the better episodes of season two--well worth seeing.
