The Doctor and Kes must find a way to stop the psychic attacks before the whole crew is disabled, lost in their own visions. Written by Meribor

Trivia

The antagonist here is played by Patrick Kerr, who frequently plays characters on other shows with a serious Star Trek obsession. In fact on the show Frasier (1993) its even stated his character has a restraining order from William Shatner. See more »

Goofs

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 »

This episode does nothing to advance the story, or to further develop or explore any of the characters. The ending leaves you with the question of "Just what the heck happened here?", and suggest no answers.

Something affects the crew with delusions of personal desires, and then just vanishes. And using Janeway's boring Romantic Fantasy holo-novel as a springboard to further the story was like rubbing salt into a wound.

Jeri Taylor (writer) must have been having an off-day, or someone found one of her discarded script drafts and used it.

A 45 min infomercial for some Ronco product, starring our hero's, would be just as entertaining.
