Synopsis - After being left on all the time for weeks, the townspeople of Fair Haven begin to grow suspicious of the Voyager crew when they witness them calling up the computer.

Spirit Folk is what the townspeople of Fair Haven are calling the Voyager crew in this interesting sequel to the episode from earlier this season. Similar situations can be found in the Next Generation's #152 Who Watches The Watchers and the Original Series episode The Original Series > Season 3 > #78 All Our Yesterdays'; return true">#78 All Our Yesterdays. This episode also explores the problems with leaving a holodeck program running all the time. Now you may ask yourselves then how did Deep Space Nine get away with it with Vic Fontaine? Well consider this: Vic Fontaine was a much more complex holomatrix who actually knew that he was hologram composed of photons and forcefields (much like the Doctor), and because of his complex matrix, he was able to tap into the holosuite systems himself and move around them, and likely perform some self-maintenance as well.
As with other episodes like this, it explores the distrust of technology misunderstood. Some key humourous moments to watch for are, Tom's car accident and Tom turning Harry's date into a cow. Also the Doctor as usual provides some great comic relief.
