I was watching Threshold the other night. In the opening scenes, Tom is piloting the shuttle, while Torres and Kim are running mission control. At the end of the scene, we discover that the Tom is really on the holodeck. Is there a real shuttle out in space that Tom is piloting through the holographic interface? If not, how does the computer know what kind of stresses that a warp 10 flight would produce? And if it was purely holographic, why couldn't Tom ask the computer for the fix instead of Neelix? In TNG, when there are unknowns, the holodeck doesn't give back information (Elementary, Dear Data). On the whole, I didn't think it was too bad an episode. Sure you had some goofy Newts, but, TNG had some weird (de)evolution with Genesis and that was a pretty cool episode. What killed it for me was the Newt Puppet Paris and Janeway. The Newt babies looked good to me. Sad to see Paris pining for Kes, especially when he is working so closely with B'Elanna. Janeway cockblocks him though.
