"Virtuoso" - A superior alien race inexplicably worships The Doctor's singing voice, granting him rock-star status.

The Doctor's ego soars when Voyager engages an advanced but arrogant race which is entranced by the medical officer's passable singing talent, granting him instant rock-star status that tempts him to leave the ship for his legions of fans.

Millions of them mob his concerts, countless "fan mail" messages arrive and groupies abound, but one particular female Qomar catches the good Doctor's eye, and he ponders resigning his commission to stay behind.
