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 Meribor

[first lines]
The Doctor: 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. Go straight ahead, past the fountain, turn right, then left, and right again. You'll find yourself walking along the water, listening, as a man sings of his beloved's unfaithful heart. And even the fish begin to weep. Quando La Donna E Mobile.

The best and funniest Star Trek episode I've ever seen
23 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The beginning opera scene, the 'photonic canon', the females falling head over heels and the final climax... this episode had me in stitches throughout.

You'll only fully appreciate this episode if you're already familiar with the characters (i.e. make sure you've seen other episodes of Voyager so you know the characters, don't watch this as your first).

Typically of Star Trek there were some thought-provoking underlying points; e.g. how does ones imagination influence reality; and when a fantasy does become reality it's not quite what you imagined.
