KES: Of course not, we're very happy here. I'm referring to the Doctor.
Janeway: The Doctor?
Kes: I don't understand why people treat him the way they do.
JANEWAY: How do people treat him?
Kes: As though he doesn't exist. They talk about him while he's standing right there. They ignore him. They insult him.
JANEWAY: Well as a matter of fact, I've been hearing the other side of the coin. Many of the crew have complained that the Doctor is brusque, even rude, that he lacks any bedside manner. We've been talking about reprogramming him.
Kes: You can do that? It doesn't seem right.
Janeway: Kes, he's only a hologram.
KES: He's your Medical Officer. He's alive.
Janeway: No, he's not.
Kes: He's self aware, he's communicative, he has the ability to learn.
JANEWAY: Because he's been programmed to do that.
KES: So because he's a hologram he doesn't have to be treated with respect or any consideration at all?
Janeway: Very well. I'll look into it.
Kes: Thank you, Captain.
At Engineering station 2, scan analysis 21166 shows the wormhole.
KIM: Okay, we'll be ready to go online in a couple of minutes.
TORRES: I'm still worried about the gravitational interference. I don't think the co-variant isolator will be effective with a vocal transmission.
KIM: Let's try inverting the narrow band filter.
(Janeway enters from her Ready room.)
Janeway: Progress report, Ensign.
KIM: I think we're ready to give it a try, though we're pushing through some pretty heavy gravitational interference. I can't guarantee the clarity of the transmission.
