But the Doc's whole schtick was about how holograms were just like people.
As for your extrapolation to insinuate that I'm calling you a "selfish A-hole"...
I'm not. I am describing my impression of the episode and what it showed me about the Doctor. It's not personal.
I'm an oddity. While I think Picardo did an awesome job, I simply didn't *like* the Doctor. He was a great character, but not a likeable one IMO. Which is fine in my book because the unlikeable characters are usually more interesting.
