This one is kinda pointless in the long run but it is well executed and definitely well thought out. It features Dax and Odo in the Gamma Quadrant discover a mysterious village where some of the villagers seem to be mysteriously disappearing. Dax discovers that they are all, in fact, holograms, and that the main computer source is on the fritz. When they try to do a reboot, they discover one man is not a hologram.
It also has a nice plot for Odo, who becomes friends with a little girl hologram, it has some decent dialogue and scenes. The little girl is a hell of a lot better in this episode than she was in TNG’s “Imaginary Friend”.
