Unless it had elements in it's program that forbade or fought copying.

There's proprietory rights at one side of the spectrum and the prime directive at the other.

Do they really want the Klingons to get hold of an emh and turn him into a billion dogsoldiers?

Re: Favorite blatant contradictions

Come to think of it, why didn't they ever back up Data?

Yeah, they also must have made about ten thousand copies of the bootup state of the EMH's program. No way they programmed 10,000 EMHs individually.

It is pretty weird that after refusing to give Starfleet tech to the Kazon they give it away like candy in several instances later in the season. Besides that I don't see any issues with the Hirogen thing though. It did end up saving lives, it made fewer Hirogen hunt actual living beings. They just didn't know the Hirogen would end up turning their holograms sentient.

Re: Favorite blatant contradictions

Data's program needs a positronic brain to work properly, or even possibly at all, and he was certain that if he left his brain or backed up his brain, he might return without the soul he believes that he has, or at least that's the crap he spun for Maddox when they tried to back up Data.

Lal, his daughter, had copies of parts of his brain, B4 too.

So have Janeway fire out her authorization code. If she can destroy the ship by herself on a whim, I think she can authorize the copying of a computer file.

Re: Favorite blatant contradictions

Janeway is only a Captain.

On Voyager that might seem like a big thing.

But there are thousands of Starships in the fleet.

EMHs could be worse than tribbles is they are allowed to breed without reservation.

And that's not even if they're all accidentally becoming self aware.

Besides,the problem episode is Message in a Bottle.

The Doctor goes to he Alpha quadrant and it is only after his program is shot across the galaxy that they begin to suspect that he might not ever come back and Harry tries to Build an EMH from scratch.

If the EMH was still on Voyager and Harry had to make a copy, sure fine.

I can copy a windows 8 installation disk easily, I have a few floating about.

But I couldn't make one from scratch.

In Message in a Bottle, becuase Harry didn't have the original to copy, he was frakked, but if he did, then maybe we might see how easy it is to mass produce these blighters... We don't know when they designed/built the back up module which we saw in Living Witness.

In Eye of the Needle they even said that he was integrated into the Sickbay so they couldn't back him and take him to Romulan space with the rest of the crew, but that was when they were all young and stupid.
