Everyone's favorite holo-addict Lieutenant Barclay (guest star Dwight Schultz, Star Trek: The Next Generation) has found a new obsession: Starship Voyager and her crew. When Enterprise visits Earth, Barclay reunites with his former counselor Deanna Troi, recollecting for her the events leading up to his dismissal from Pathfinder and ban from the research, involving his own holodeck version of Voyager where he is the most popular crewman.

Barclay's holographic imagination of the main characters is based on how they looked before leaving the Alpha Quadrant in Star Trek: Voyager: Caretaker
(1995). Captain Janeway has her original hairstyle, and Chakotay and B'Elanna Torres are wearing Maquis fatigues rather than Starfleet uniforms. Neelix and 7-of-9, who were added to the crew in the Delta Quadrant, do not appear in his visions, although the name of his cat indicates he is aware of them. See more
