Stardate 54556.4: Voyager plays host to a handful of advanced aliens whose ship is incapacitated. The visitors infuriate Janeway and her crew with their arrogance at the “primitive” nature of Voyager’s culture – until the Doctor, with whom the aliens are also less than pleased, begins to sing. Never having heard music before, the Komari suddenly become rapt fans of the Doctor, and quickly extend an invitation to Voyager to visit their homeworld. After giving a gala performance to the population of an entire world, the Doctor is tempted by their offer to leave Voyager permanently and become a full-time musical ambassador to their world. But while the Doctor makes hasty goodbyes to his crewmates, he underestimates the fickle nature of fame.
