This is the third of three episodes that feature Janeway's Gothic holonovel, holosuite program Janeway Lambda one. The holonovel had originally been developed for "Eye of the Needle" but was not shown onscreen until "Cathexis". See more
Scene 1: At sickbay, Janeway saw the girl from holonovel standing in front of her. She asked doctor to check if he can see anyone around. The doctor looked around, but could not see anyone else.
Scene 2: Towards the end of the show, when Kes was at the engineering, attacked by hallucinated Neelix. The doctor reminded Kes to look at the hallucinated Neelix, "look at him, remember the mirror?".
How was the doctor not able to see Janeway's hallucination right in the sickbay, but was able to see Kes' hallucination via Engineering monitor? See more
