Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[the Doctor has decided to leave Voyager in favor of his singing career]
The Doctor: I feel I've accomplished all I can here. Oh, there's the occasional medical mystery that challenges my programming, but mostly, it's become routine. And frankly, I feel my talents are often taken for granted. But when I'm standing on that stage performing, and I see those rapt faces in the audience... I feel I finally know what it's like to be made of flesh and blood.
Seven of Nine: You simply crave attention, applause, fan mail.

Good acting, but a sub-par episode
16 April 2007 | by (North Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

While assisting a group of technologically advanced aliens, they hear the Doctor sing and instantly become mesmerized by his voice. Voyager returns the aliens to their home world where the Doctor becomes adored like The Beatles when they first came to America. The Doctor must decide if he wants to stay on this planet where he is worshiped as a singer or remain with the Voyager. There is also the question of if he should be allowed to leave the ship, since he is in essence an Emergency Medical Hologram.

Robert Picardo turns in a fine performance in this episode, and there are some great scenes with him and Kate Mulgrew, but this is one of the show's weaker episodes.

It's still worth watching as it brings up some interesting concepts about exactly how to classify the Doctor now. Hologram property of Starfleet or a sentient being. In a way this is a courtroom episode, but instead of a courtroom it takes place in a concert hall.
