Living Witness

So I just watched this ep again.. and I don't get what the deal with the back up doctor is. Does he have his mobile emitter? I would assume not since he is a backup. How did he manage to take a ship and leave after some years?

I'm guessing the culture he was in invented a mobile emitter for him.

So when the backup doctor finally got back to the Alpha quadrant 700+ years after Voyager did I wonder where the original doctor was? I imagine the original doctor would be quite mortified at his much younger self having grown all wise and stuff LOL!

Re: Living Witness

The back up wouldn't need a mobile emitter, since he was at the musuem, which had holoemitters for the displays & stuff. As for takin' a ship & leavin', the aliens probably added emitters to a warp shuttle or whatever...and away he went.

Until ya realize its completely pointless, 'cause the existence of a back up EMH totally negates all the concerns the crew had about losin' the EMH.

Yeah it should have been a transporter accident which doubled 'em up on EMH's and then they stupidly lost one.

It was still a great episode

Re: Living Witness

How about an episode where pirated copies of the Doctor start spreading across the Delta Quadrant?

Dude, we don't talk about illegal downloads of the Doctor on this BBS.

You're telling me that all we need is BitTorrent and we can all have our own EMH?

Think of it this way, between episodes they found out how to make ONE back-up copy of the EMH and only one. Then it was lost in the battle with the Kyrians and they couldn't make another.

Re: Living Witness

Anyone in Trek Lit ever follow up on the Back-up Doctor's return to the Alpha Quadrant in the 31st century? It might make for a nice short story.

Re: Living Witness

I think a SNW story focused on it, but since that story was set in Star Trek's far future, the backup module's ultimate fate has been untouched, since the TNG/DS9/VOY (and related novel spin-off series) novels are set in the late 24th century.

Well they had all of those concerns prior to this episode, so presumably Belanna figured out a way to back him up before that time.

Re: Living Witness

I so wish they did a Mirror Universe-style episode where Janeway and co had to whup their evil counterparts. You think Janeway got mad when Captain Ransom did a few naughty things? Think she got single-minded and obsessive over the Krenim? Imagine how she'd react if an Evil Janeway really was bombarding planets from orbit and executing world leaders in the name of Starfleet.

Wouldn't it be stretching credibility a fair bit if the Mirror Universe Voyager also ends up in the Delta Quadrant?

If that didn't dissolve any notion of credibility for this enterprise then Space Nazis AGAIN certainly did.
