Why did they have to use Crell's exact physical appearance parameters for the hologram in the first place?
For that matter, why didn't the doctor just incorporate Crell's research into his own program at the beginning? Calling up a holographic expert was silly when Geordi did it, and still silly when the EMH did it.
Eh, I can understand the rationale for Geordi doing it being he can't instantaneously download information. It only got silly once he started flirting with the holo expert.
The reason Crell was made into a holo? To give everyone including the audience someone to personify all the bad things done and interact with appropriately.
