The Doctor's experiment with daydreaming gets out of control when his program is compromised by an alien race. The aliens bully passing ships for supplies; they never make a move without first consulting their command which they call The Hierarchy. One of the aliens mistakes the daydreams for reality and gets permission to attack. Once realizing his mistake, he offers to help Voyager, but only if they act out one of The Doctor's fantasies where he is in command of Voyager. Written by

Somewhere, in that totality known as the universe, is a galaxy called the Milky Way. Tucked into the corner of that galaxy is a planet named Earth. On that planet is a city called Mantua.

And even the fish begin to weep. Quando La Donna E Mobile.
