Storyline

An injured cytoplasmic life-form attaches itself to Torres, tapping into her body like a parasite. Unsure of how to save his patient, The Doctor creates a holographic recreation of a non-humanoid exobiology specialist to consult the case. The consult is going well until Torres refuses treatment when it is made known the Cardassian specialist was responsible for tortuous experiments resulting in the deaths of thousands of Bajorans.

Trivia

Goofs

Incorrectly Regarded as a Goof: A major plot line in the story is how Star Fleet crewmembers react with racism to the Cardassian holo-doctor; therefore it is incorrect to reimagine the crew simply changing the appearance of the Cardassian. See more »

Quotes

[last lines]
Dr. Crell Moset: Where was your conscience when B'Elanna was dying on that table? Ethics? Morality? Conscience? Funny how they all go out the airlock when we need something. Are you and I really so different?

I don't quite understand the moral quandary
25 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Lt. Torres is attacked by a giant green slug-like creature. It sends its tendrils into her body and they are inextricably linked-- so much so that the Doctor cannot remove the creature without killing B'Elanna. However, some Cardassian doctor has done some research and his work might help them remove the creature. So, the Doctor has a holographic Dr. Moset consult with him. However, apparently Moset is some sort of Cardassian war criminal and Maquis members on the crew and Tuvok object to the Doctor consulting with the Moset hologram.

I didn't really understand why this was such a HUGE problem. Had the ship brought the real Dr. Moset aboard to treat B'Elanna, I could easily understand the concerns. Heck, in this case I'd even like it if they shot him in the face. But it's NOT this man--it's a hologram. Despite this, the episode is moderately interesting and it is worth seeing.
