The Doctor creates a holographic family, but B'elanna Torres thinks the Doctor's simulation is too "nice" (in a "Leave It to Beaver" sort of way) and introduces some alterations to the program to make the simulation more accurate to real life: a wife who often disagrees, a rebellious teenage son, and a daughter who is sure she knows better than her doting father. When his daughter is critically injured, the Doctor must make a choice: run back to his Voyager life, or face the harsh "reality" of losing a loved one. Meanwhile, Voyager could lose Tom to a totally unknown space phenomena.

After B'Elanna changes the Doctor's family, the wife's hair becomes short and "modern," but later it is long once again, even though the Doctor hasn't asked the computer to alter the program. The change of the wife's hairdo is, however, less the result of B'Elanna's or the Doctor's programming than the personal choice of that holocharacter, who (given the nature of the holo-program) has been given a certain autonomy over her actions and preferences.
