Robert Picardo doesn’t think the EMH and Seven of Nine belonged together

Robert Picardo played the EMH on Star Trek: Voyager for seven seasons. In season four of Star Trek: Voyager, the Emergency Medical Hologram (Robert PIcardo) lost the one individual he was closest to on the ship—Kes (Jennifer Lien). Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), an ex-Borg drone, arrived to essentially take Kes’ place, leaving the doctor without a mentor, someone to help him develop his humanity while he taught her medical skills. Picardo was concerned as to where this would leave The Doctor until he managed to flip things around by suggesting he be the one to teach Seven of Nine what it’s like to be human.

Robert Picardo wanted to play Neelix on Voyager

Robert Picardo’s role as The Doctor on Star Trek: Voyager created a legion of fans who fell in love with the holographic physician. Little did he know when he accepted the role that it would result in such a committed fan base. In fact, Picardo was so unsure about the role which he thought would confine him to one set for his scenes that he was reluctant to accept it at first. He had his eye on another role, one that seemed to be more fitting for him.

Watch Robert Picardo (The Doctor in Star Trek: Voyager) Sing the Star Trek Theme

There’s probably a very good reason why these lyrics didn’t make the cut moving forward and it has a lot to do with the fact that Star Trek might have become even more of a science-fiction opera than it already did over the years. It’s kind of Robert Picardo to sing the lyrics to celebrate Gene Roddenberry’s birthday, but at the same time, it’s enough to be grateful that these lyrics didn’t get to move forward with the show since yes, Gene was obviously not a great lyricist. It’s interesting to think of how many Trekkies might have actually known about these lyrics and how many would have agreed that it was wise to keep them out, versus how many might have argued to possibly bring them back and include them in some way. It wouldn’t be the best idea in the world but it would also be intriguing to think that it could happen as an homage to the creator of the show and possibly as a way to see whether people might get into them in any way.
