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, but, before doing so, they first consult their command; The Hierarchy. One of the aliens mistakes the daydreams for reality, and gets permission to attack. Upon 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

The aria The Doctor sings in the teaser scene is Giuseppe Verdi
's "La donna e' mobile" ("Woman is Fickle") from the third act of the opera Rigoletto. Legend has it that Verdi, afraid that the tune would get out before the premiere of the piece, withheld the aria from singer Raffaele Mirate until a few days before the premiere, and forbade him to sing, hum, or whistle it outside of rehearsals.

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.
