I meant accidentally sentient holograms.... Vic, Moriarty, the inhabitants of Fair Haven.

I love the The Doctor, although he too did have a bit of the Pinocchio syndrome.
I loved him, but yeah he did have serious Pinocchio syndrome. It was funny though. Photons be free!

Fair Haven... ugh. I disliked those episodes only because I just couldn't stand watching Janeway date a hologram. I have nothing against holograms, especially ones who know they are holograms and accept it... but just... no.
I dunno, Janeway pacing around that hologram like a predator as she's making changes to it makes me laugh every time. Especially, "Computer... delete the wife." Other than that, yeah.. Fair Haven was just silly at best, facepalming the rest of the time.
I just have too much respect for Janeway...therefore watching her be so... desperate? Made me cringe a little.

I liked the Fair Haven characters. Just the Janeway bits with her pining after the bartender (who, I will admit, was extremely cute and charming) made me feel so sad for her. I understand she is in the middle of nowhere and "can't date her crew", but seriously? I can understand messing around with one of them, but she acted serious about him towards the end there. I was yelling at my tv, I think. Nooooo, he's a hologram! Come on!

Now, the Doctor... he is awesome. He can date all he wants. He's got a mobile emitter. He can at least walk around outside the ship. He's not bound to a program. So, I give him a pass. I still think the Doctor and Seven of Nine would have been a great pairing.

"Computer, delete the wife." That was a funny line though.
Once there was a grocery man whose name was simply Louie...until the day his store blew up and his produce went kablewie.
