I am glad to see you writing about the holigraphic Doc. He is one of my all time favorite Trek characters, and I do seem to recall him having a bit of a case for Seven. I always felt deeply for him and his struggles to be taken seriously. (Which often backfired and made him seem more ridiculous than ever.)
Poor guy. I can see that all these years later, he's still so fond of Seven that he can't bear the thought of her seeing another man--and a flesh and blood man, at that.
"Subroutine addled brain". Wow, that remark from Tom had to hurt, but the Doc got in a parting zinger of his own.
You did a great job handling these characters.

One of the things that fascinates me about the later iterations of Trek is their use of artificial intelligence, and the emotional and ethical considerations of such. Though admittedly, I haven't watched much Voyager, it fascinates me that a hologram (holograph?) could entertain notions of a romantic interest with a flesh and blood member of the crew.
Poor Tom. He had the unpleasant duty of telling the doctor the truth of the situation, whether he wanted to do it or not. Pity the doctor took it so badly. And, of course, it had to happen on a Monday.
I am enjoying reading this series. When I watch some Voyager, I feel like I will really know who Seven is.
