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.

A few years have passed and Barkley is still a creepy kinda guy!
2 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Back when he was a semi-regular on "Star Trek: The Next Generation", Lt. Barkley was a creepy guy who was filled with doubts and spent all his free time in a holo suite living out a life of confidence, sexual appeal and competence. Outside it, he was a schmuck who stuttered a lot and avoided relationships. Normal, he wasn't. Now with this episode of "Star Trek: Voyager", he's pretty much the same pathetic and creepy guy. However, instead of having his way with the women of Enterprise, he sees himself as a stud living on Voyager. If you think about it, this is even sicker and creepier, as he's never even been on Voyager nor has he met these folks!

Part of Barkley's fascination with Voyager is his insistence that he can somehow reach out to the ship and contact them...and perhaps one day help bring them back to Earth. No one believes him, as they just see him as a creepy guy to be avoided. Can Barkley rise to the occasion and help Voyager even though he's a bazillion light-years away from the Delta Quadrant?

I am not a huge fan of the Barkley character. Had he evolved and become more competent and less a skeezy guy who annoys holo women, I would have enjoyed this one a lot more. Still, it was moderately interesting.
