Personal History:

The Doctor was first activated in 2372 on board the USS Kirk, when Captain Tevis decided he wanted a holographic Doctor, since it would know more about medicine than most doctors, and when Peter Andrews took command, he agreed with Captain Tevis’s decision. To this end, the Kirk was outfitted with holo-emitters, giving the Doctor free reign of the ship.

The Doctor proved to be a valuable officer, finding cures to unknown pathogens and keeping the crew alive. He was given full control of his systems, so only he could deactivate himself, and he could set a time for however long he would be deactivated for.

When Voyager returned, the Doctor met with Voyager’s EMH, and the two of them conversed for thirty-five hours straight, discussing various medical issues. They exchanged ideas, as well as cures and stories.

A year after Voyager’s return, the Daystrom Institute had come up with a Mobile Emitter that could be used by any hologram. Peter Andrews pushed his mother to help him, and the Holoemitter, Starfleet’s first (barring the one belonging to Voyager’s EMH) was given to the Doctor, improving his usefulness. The Doctor was also given his own quarters, and even went on away missions.

In 2378, Peter Andrews and the Doctor went to Starfleet, and worked at getting Starfleet to pass a law that Holograms such as Voyager’s EMH, and the Doctor, were sentient. Commander Data even made an appearance, and after a two month long legal battle, some holograms, ones that had exceeded their programming, and grown by the standards set by the courts, would be recognised as Sentient beings. As such, The Doctor, who had written two medical journals and five holo-programmes, was given a valuable sum of Latinum, which he used to buy a small moon, which was a lush paradise. He then secured all rights, so no one could build on it without his permission. The moon was located in the same system as a Starfleet base, so they promised to keep an eye on it to make sure that none could develop it, if the Doctor allowed them to use it for cadets to camp out on during training. The doctor agreed to the stipulation, and it is still used as a training ground, although The Doctor, and several of his friends, still go there for vacations.

When the Kirk was destroyed, the Doctor was able to transfer his programme to his mobile emitter, and was evacuated. When Captain Andrews was assigned to the Teardrop, the Doctor followed him.

When the Teardrop was destroyed in the final battle above Earth, the Doctor had evacuated to the Captain’s yacht, and when Captain Andrews was attacked, the Doctor kept him alive, and when the Captain was transferred to Starfleet medical, the Doctor stayed with him as his Doctor, which Starfleet agreed to.

When Captain Andrews was given command of the Peacemaker, he asked for the Doctor to join him, which the Doctor agreed to.
