'Voyager' Actor InterviewsBy Christian
April 2, 2000 - 9:26 PM
Qie over at Voyager's Delights has put up two mroe interviews with Voyager actors, both of which again came from the April 2000 issue of Cinefantastique, and which were originally written down by Anna L. Kaplan. In the first interview, Robert Picardo (the Holodoc) looks back at season five, and talks about his favourite episode of that season, 'Latent Image':
"I was proud of that show. I thought it was a great idea to have the Doctor's adaptive programming double cross him, so to speak. In other words, he has personality subroutines and can develop a relationship and even feelings for a particular crew member that would influence a strictly objective medical decision. After he had made that decision, and the consequences had been suffered, that he would relive that moment of decision over and over again, and torture himself with the guilt of having saved one of two equally injured people because of a personal relationship, was a great concept for an episode. The more human he becomes, by definition, the less purely objectively he can practice his medical craft. Also he has to learn to reconcile tragedy, and feelings of guilt, or feelings of doubt about his choices."
In the full review, Picardo also talks about episodes such as 'Nothing Human' and 'Someone To Watch Over Me'.
In the second interview, John Savage looks back at 'Equinox', in which he guest-starred as Captain Ransom of the U.S.S. Equinox.
