Re: So the EMH Never Heard of the Dominion

Given how huge the doctor's program has been established to be it's unlikely that every bit of information about current events would be periodically added to his program, unless it was medically relevant, and at the time there was no medically relevant information known about the Dominion.

Re: So the EMH Never Heard of the Dominion

1. EMH Mark II's answer was annoying to begin with. A simple "no" would have worked.

2. Even if we assume that Voyager's computer system was updated with information about the Dominion, and then assume that EMH Mark I had access to the wealth of knowledge in Voyager's database (which doesn't seem to be the case anyway) .. is it really reasonable to believe that B'Elanna would have shipped the entire library of Federation threats along with the Doctor's program over the Hirogen relay given the risk of sending just the Doctor? He also obviously couldn't pick up that information from Prometheus's database.

I personally think we should take the Doctor's word for it that he never heard of the Dominion and accept that sometimes characters know less than the viewer because the viewer gets to experience everything, whereas the Doctor wasn't even turned on until the DQ.

Edit to add, slightly off topic:
Janeway did have another option. She and Tuvok could have sent Voyager home (The way Tuvok was talking, he could do it at a moment's notice), with the two of them remaining on board the array until the last possible second to ensure the explosives went off.
"You have been examined. Your ship must be destroyed. We make assumption you have a deity, or deities, or some such beliefs which comfort you. We therefore grant you ten Earth time periods known as minutes to make preparations."

Tuvok said that it would take hours to get the Array working right. The Kazon would've returned by then.
