Well someone has to. Can't let the lunatics completely take over.

Though it was still one of VOY better episodes.

Speaking of having only one doctor... thats another reason he shouldn't have "killed" the Equinox EMH, just disabled him and reinstated his ethical sub routines.

Hmmm.

Where's the hue and cry over him killing his "brother", a "being" that was mentally savaged by his crew (as much as "our EMH was savaged by Ransom) that Janeway has to deal with over Tuvix?

We've already had our memories of that incident erased by Janeway.

The ship computer is already way too busy simulating his personality, ego and emotions. No processing power left for super fast movements.

Yeah, and he set up multiple instances of himself in the holdeck. So why couldn't he just run a second instance of himself to save Harry and Crewman Goldshirt in Latent Image?

Renaissance Man

He did it again in Live Fast and Prosper when he impersonated an alien.

I would imagine that there was only one EMH because you hope to never have to use even the one. He was designed to be used in an emergency only and for a short time. Even still his program was very large and it might be that having two of them would take up too much space

Re: Why don't the EMH's hands move super FAST?

They managed to create a Cardassian Doctor on the holodeck and I don't recall storage space being an issue.

But I guess they could have swiped the Equinox's EMH back-up module as that can store an EMH easily.

The cardassian doctor wasn't nearly as comlex or as functional as the doctor was. They threw him together in a few minutes

They just threw the information the had from him into a hologram to make it easier to interact with. he only has one doctor's worth of knowledge. On the other hand the EMH is programmed with 5 million possible treatments from the collective information of 2000 medical references and the experience of 47 individual doctors. So he's by far a large file

Here's another question-- when the EMH touches your naked body, are his hands cold?
