Episode cast overview:
B'Elanna Torres (as Roxann Biggs-Dawson)


The program for the Emergency Medical Hologram is activated due to what the computer describes as a ship-wide emergency. When the Doctor asks the computer to scan for the crew, he learns that they were all forced to abandon ship. Later, he encounters Torres, who says that she and the Captain stayed behind to stop a warp core breach caused by a Kazon attack; the remaining crew escaped in lifepods. Informed that the injured captain needs his assistance, the Doctor is sent to the Bridge, courtesy of new holo-emitters installed throughout the ship. After reviving Janeway, the Doctor is summoned to the mess hall to assist Neelix, who is engaged in battle with a Kazon soldier. After the scuffle, the holographic doctor is astonished to learn that he himself is bleeding. When queried, the computer insists that the Doctor is actually Dr. Lewis Zimmerman, the human who created Voyager's EMH. Stranger still, when the Captain tells the computer to shut down all of the ship's holographic systems, ... Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


This story is patterned after a James Garner film 36 Hours (1965). In that film Garner's character has injured and wakes up in an U.S. Army hospital. He's told the war is over. In actuality the hospital is in Germany and all the people in it are Germans. It's an elaborate ruse to get Garner to talk about the invasion of Europe. He's not pushed, they talk to him about it hoping he will give a location and or date. This is not the first time a Star Trek story line has recycled this idea; there were similar episodes in Star Trek (1966), and Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987). See more »


Like Tom Paris in Star Trek: Voyager: Parallax, Barclay speaks of "the Voyager" instead "Voyager". Voyager is ordinarily designated without the definite article. See more »

A Headache
2 February 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

Identity crisis, anyone? Just when you thought you had figured out "Total Recall," along comes the ultimate holodeck-within-a-holodeck episode of Trek, a mystery wrapped in a riddle wrapped in a warp drive.

The Doctor "awakens" to the realization that he is, in fact, real, and that all else is a holodeck illusion. After three-thousand twists and turns I simply pinched myself to be sure I was real. As usual, "Voyager" takes a good premise and makes it as dark, difficult and painful as it can be.

Fun is fun but should fun be giving me a headache? Chill out, folks.
