    Renaissance Man was a great episode of Star Trek: Voyager and I really enjoyed watching this episode because the story was good, the Doctor was amazing, and the action was fun. It was cool to watch the Doctor impersonate members of the crew including the Captain. He also had some awesome moves. It was equally fun watching the crew try to figure out what was going on. The Doctor made some confessions in the end which was great to watch. I look forward to watching the two part season and series finale!!!!!!!

  • Janeway is kidnapped and the doctor assumes the likeness of many members of the crew to get the warp core to obtain Janeway's release. He does not consult senior officers. He disobeys a direct order from Janeway not to get the warp core for her captors.moreless

    Everything does turn out well,after the captors refuse to return Janeway and take the Doctor as well with the Doctor and Janeway being rescued by Voyager. The warp core is recovered and in remorse, believing his progamming is being purged confesses many things, unflattering to his shipmates. He is fine, but hides in sick bay for 7 days until Janeway comes in and tells him he should leave sickbay, that his 7 day confinement for disobeying a diect order is over. Contrast this with Paris being demoted and jailed for 30 days for disobeying a direct order earlier in the show. The objective is the same with or without Janeway. Get Voyager home, and without a warp core she cannot get there. The doctor acts irrationally and forget the maxim, the needs of the many outweight the needs of one.moreless

    Captain Janeway and The Doctor are traveling back from a medical symposium. They are aboard the Delta Flyer when it starts experiencing a gravimetric shockwave. Janeway returns to Voyager. She tells Chakotay that they are breaking local laws. A race known as the R'Kaal have laws prohibiting warp drive technology through their region of space. In order to save the crew, Janeway has agreed to surrender the warp coil to the R'Kaal. Chakotay is concerned about the Captain's behavior. He confronts her about it. He is convinced that he is not talking to the real Janeway. Will Voyager make it home? I rate this episode a 9.6moreless

    I both agree and disagree with peacejaw's review. I think that the plot of the episode had some merit and it wasn't just filler; however, the plot was also a little implausible. The Doctor acted extremely irrationally and out of character and his punishment was absurd. At the very least, his ECH protocols should have been curtailed in some way. If all the Doctor has to do is turn into the ECH in order to do something as drastic and eject the core, then it's irresponsible to allow him to be able to do somoreless

    • The Doctor: Sit down and relax, Captain. You have a hologram at the helm.

    • The Doctor: (disguised as B'Elanna) You wouldn't shoot a pregnant woman, would you?

    • The Doctor: We had an agreement!
      Xet: (chuckles) To spare your Captain. As you can see, she's still alive.
      Janeway: Let the Doctor go. I'm the more valuable hostage.
      Xet: Actually, you're not. We'll leave you in the Vinri system. The inhabitants are mostly harmless. The Doctor will be working for us now.

    • The Doctor: ("deathbed" confession) ... When you reach Earth, I want you to donate my emitter to the Daystrom Institute. They may be able to replicate it someday, so that other holograms can know the freedom I've enjoyed.
      (to Janeway)
      I've had something on my conscience for a long time. After I was first activated, I kept a record of what I considered to be your most questionable command decisions. It's in my personal database. I hope you'll delete the file without reading it. Mister Tuvok, I violated the most sacred trust between a physician and his patient. I told Mister Neelix about the cutaneous eruption you developed on your... (pause) ...that was most indiscreet. I hope you can forgive me.
      (To Kim)
      Ensign, at your recital last month, I told Lieutenant Torres that your saxophone playing reminded me of a wounded targ. I should have put it more delicately. I'm sorry.
      (To Seven Of Nine)
      Seven... you have no idea how difficult it's been hiding my true feelings all these years, averting my eyes during your regular maintenance exams. I know you could never have the same feelings for me, but I want you to know the truth. I love you, Seven.

      Zet's comment that the inhabitants of the Vinri system are "mostly harmless" is a nod to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which was written by Douglas Adams.
