Revulsion: HoloDoc and Torres come to the aide of a hologram who's shipmates have all died.

OK, so we've got a holographic dude who has a shipful of dead people.

Voyager is having a party for Tuvok's promotion to Lt. commander. Tom says three days have passed since Day of Honor. HoloDoc asks him to help out in sick bay, since Kes pissed off. Chakotay instructs Kim to help Seven upgrade astrometrics.

They get the distress call from the holographic dude and send Holodoc and Torres to supply aid. HoloDude says the crew got a virus and died. Torres sets about fixing him.

Meanwhile Kim and Seven fiddle with astrometrics and Kim tries to chat her up. Seven's not used to doing things by the book.

HoloDoc and HoloDude bond. HoloDude is obsessive compusive re cleanliness. HoloDude then takes food to Torres and acts generally creepy, then goes off on a rant about how disgusting being organic is. Torres consults HoloDoc and then decides to go down to the lower deck to check it out.

Seven slashes her hand while working and is irritated she didn't instantly regenerate. Tom detects Kim's interest in Seven, cue yet another "relationship" which never went anywhere.

Torres locates the dead crew - they've been murdered by HoloDude. Torres attempts to shut him down and he attacks her, but she's able to shut him down anyway.

Kim tried to pull moves on Seven. Seven twigs and asks if he wants to have sex. Kim stammers and chickens out.

Torres has internal bleeding, but HoloDoc is having trouble accessing the shuttles transporters. HoloDude turns up again and knocks out Torres, then disables HoloDoc by hitting the mobile emitter. HoloDdue then hunts Torres, but she zaps him with a cable. Then they go home.

Kim attempts to get out of working with Seven, but Chakotay says he's happy having them work together. HoloDoc, Torres and Tom have more jovality in sick bay.

Teh Endzorz

I've been trying to play Star Trek: Armada recently. Unfortunately it does not appear to work properly on Windows XP - the sound is cutty as hell and the graphics are shot. It's at least playable (when I first installed it, it crashed. Upgrading to 1.2 fixed that, but didn't fix the sound/graphics problems).

The layout of the disks in what way? They're fairly basic - four eps per disc...

Yes.. but I liked the "Launch" "Communications" and the other option in lieu of the usual word choices.. =) and what was with Caretaker being #721 and the others being 103 & 104?

Oh! Yeah, very Trekkie those menus. :) Less animated than the TOS menus, but then I think it's better becuase you don't have to wait as long for stuff to happen. :P

Caretaker was originally a two-parter which is presented on the disk as one long episode, ISTR. It *should* be 101 and 102, so how they compiled the number, I'm not sure.

The TOS one starts with a CGI version of the logo, the Enterprise zips past, then reappears in frame, the camera zooms in on the bridge and flies inside, doing a quick tour before settling down in the Captain's chair looking toward the main viewer.

Interesting.. but I'd agree after the first time sorta.. redundant.
