Projected Delusions

Story: Projections
Written By: Brannon Braga
Series: Star Trek: Voyager
Year: 1995

This episode focuses on the Doctor. Win. It barely features the rest of the crew. Win. Barclay sort of makes a guest appearance. Triple Win.
This is one of the best episodes this show produced up to this point. We get the Doctor dealing with his own esoteric and psychological battles, making him question whether he is actually a hologram or not. We get Barclay also appearing in a sort of pseudo guest spot. It isn’t really Barclay, but just having Schultz appear makes me like this episode just a little bit more…he should have been the Chief Engineer on Voyager…think of it, the leader with troubles leading? Oh…a guy can dream.

Anyhow my only gripe is the bit of fake out ending…it is sort of a cliché in mindbender and horror films to make you think it is all over…when oh wait it isn’t (!) …okay now it is. That was lame, but everything else was pretty good.
