A lot of fun....
6 March 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the show begins, a shuttle with Seven, Harry and the Doctor is set upon by an alien species. It seems that these folks HATE holograms and detected the Doctor's presence on the ship. However, due to some quick thinking, Seven sticks the Doctor in a file within her Borg implants. This way, they can save him. Despite not finding the holo man, these folks take Harry and Seven prisoner. But with the Doctor inside, often Seven behaves a lot like him--and Jeri Ryan did a great job impersonating his manner. It's a bit confusing when the Captain of this ship, a guy, falls for Seven. And, a bit later, the Doctor finds himself falling for one of these aliens. All in all, very confusing but funny--and a great chance to see that Ms. Ryan really can act. Well worth seeing for this as well as Captain Janeway's unusual style of diplomacy in this particular show. A real treat.
