When the holo-emitter is taken off the Doctor on the holodeck, he flickers, as he gets integrated into the holomatrix. When Janeway later takes the emitter off Sullivan, he shows no indication of being reintegrated into the matrix, yet when she fits the Doctor with the emitter right afterward, he flickers again. Sullivan and the Doctor should both have reacted to the emitter in the same way. See more »

Palatable only for Americans
19 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another dreadful episode set in Fair Haven.

Once again, the clichés come thick and fast...

Once again, the crew seem as thick as two short planks...

Once again, the stereotypes are an insult to the Irish...

This kind of fantasy is absolutely incomprehensible to anyone who doesn't share (1) a typical Americans' ignorance about the realities of life in Ireland, and (2) Americans' apparent need to consider themselves part-Irish (however much other parts may predominate - does one ever hear of 'English-Americans'?)

As with many other episodes, there is a good deal of laziness on the part of the writers (at least we don't have transporters going offline or unable to get a lock, only to function perfectly at the crucial moment). Why do none of the characters ever suggest that it might be a good idea to have a few more safeguards built into the holodeck?
