Episode propaganda

Dying Vidiian Doctor Denara Pel (Susan Diol) is beamed straight to Sickbay and the holographic Doctor (Robert Picardo) races against time to save the young woman. Using brilliant initiative, he creates a hologram of her and must ask B'Elanna (Roxann Dawson) to donate some Klingon tissue to help her life-less-ordinary body, but nothing is as straightforward as it seems...

Intelligence report

Hmmm, interesting. A Vidiian babe, an overcoming of personal dislike and an interpersonal relationship (I can't say much more without revealing plot details) (well, all right, Denara gets a holo-body, B'Elanna learns compassion for an individual and the EMH falls in love with his patient).

It's a good watch that you will more than likely enjoy - not a great one, but a good one. The episode also enhances the Vidiian storyline and rounds out the Vidiian character. A race that was once described as repulsive beings is personalised; no longer faceless bastards (no pun intended), they are desperate individuals trapped by bad luck.
