Origins

The term was first coined by The Doctor in his fantasy in the episode, "Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy", where he created a program that allowed him to daydream. The daydreams were picked up by a Hierarchy vessel in a nearby nebula and were thought to be real events. Once the crew realized that the Doctor was daydreaming, they also became aware of some of his wishes, including to be an Emergency Command Hologram. Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy is an episode of Star Trek: Voyager, the fourth episode of the sixth season. ... A daydream is a form of consciousness that involves a low level of conscious activity. ...


Usage

Captain Janeway promised the Doctor that she will consider his proposal at the end of "Tinker, Tenor, Doctor, Spy". The ECH made its debut the following season in "Workforce", where the crew is forced to abandon ship because the ship stumbled upon a subspace mine, which released great amount of tetryon radiation. The only way to keep the ship afloat is to have the doctor take over the command functions. Finally, in the final season episode "Renaissance Man" the doctor was forced to use his ECH program to eject the warp core. Kathryn Janeway (Born: May 20, 2332 in Bloomington, Indiana), played by Kate Mulgrew, is a Starfleet officer in the fictional Star Trek universe. ... Workforce was a two-part episode broadcast of the seventh season of the TV series Star Trek: Voyager, first airing in the winter of 2001. ... Renaissance Man is the penultimate episode of Star Trek: Voyager. ...


The ECH was proven to be a valuable program but was only a part of the Doctor wanting to be more than he already is. It is unknown whether the Federation continued the research when Voyager returned home. This article or section may need to be cleaned up and rewritten because it describes a work of fiction in a primarily in-universe style. ...
