Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch: “Warhead”

The EMH advocates for an artificial intelligence to be shown compassion, and gets his body taken over for his trouble. Some AIs just have no gratitude…. The Star Trek: Voyager Rewatch does “Warhead.”

An excerpt:

In some ways, this is the same story as “Dreadnought,” except it’s Kim arguing with someone using the EMH’s voice instead of Torres arguing with someone using her own voice, but the episode works on its own for several reasons.

For starters, it’s a very Star Trek story, as it isn’t technobabble trickery or superior firepower that wins the day, but an argument for compassion and common sense over blindly following orders.
