When the doctor is with Janeway to resign his commission, Janeway is telling the doctor that she is responsible for the medical needs of this crew. You can determine that the medical knowledge is essential for this crew and its future survival. However, we know from the Episode Equinox that voyager has a second EMH doctor stored in memory without its ethical subroutines, which are easy to activate. See more »

Seven of Nine: I believe the Qomar are attempting to disable our com system.
Captain Janeway: How?
Seven of Nine: By overloading it with millions of teraquads of irrelevant data.
Captain Janeway: What do you mean by "irrelevant"?

Captain Janeway: They're transmissions... all addressed to the Doctor.
Seven of Nine: Precisely. I've only been able to decipher a small fraction of them so far, but they include invitations to social and scientific functions, requests for personal encounters, and cloying tributes to the Doctor's talents.

First there was Beatle-mania, now there is Doc-mania!
2 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Virtuoso" is a very slight episode, though it is enjoyable. It all begins with Voyager coming into contact with a VERY self-satisfied and smug planet. They feel that Voyager and its crew are beneath least until they happen to overhear the Doctor singing. Suddenly, these folks are entranced and respond to him like he's Elvis or the Beatles in their prime! These folks are now begging him to put on a series of concerts. Heck, they'd even love to have him come live on the planet forever. But this serves to give the Doc a very, very swelled head and soon it's practically impossible to live with him. So what's next? See the show yourself.

One very odd thing is that the famous singer/song writer Paul Williams appears in this one but his part is very small. I saw a documentary about the guy recently and apparently he was struggling with addictions until he ultimately got straight and is now an addictions counselor. Perhaps this was during his chemically dependent period, as this would seem the only reason to have such an impressive guest and barely use him. Oh, and good luck to you, Mr. Williams!
