Arguing over a holo woman?! Huh?!? Don't worry...it does get better.
18 February 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The premise to "Alter Ego" is just stupid. Harry Kim is in love with a holodeck woman and so he seeks out advice from Tuvok on how to control his emotions. However, when Tuvok himself meets this same holo lady, he's also very intrigued by her. While he would never call it love since he's a super-stoic Vulcan, it's obvious this is the case. Soon, Harry Kim sees that Tuvok is spending time with her and he's furious-- which makes no sense.

At this point, I was longing for this god-awful plot to end. Fortunately, it took a wonderful detour and eventually it turned into a dandy episode. How? Just see this episode and force yourself to keep watching!

Overall, surprisingly good despite a slow and rocky premise.
