That isn't technobable, and what is wrong with it?

Technobable is stuff like "The engines are being overworked, we need vent the iodine tubes or the gravimetric converter will blow the phase relays and take us and the core with it".
How is Isomorphic projection better than a hologram? What even is isomorphic projection? (it's an actual term for 2D drawings which doesn't apply here), it's something they came up with just to make the aliens seem more advanced, it's meaningless and dumb and didn't really need to be said.

But he is more than a hologram, he is a real person, somehow being projected onto Voyager from another ship and can interact, sit, even drink and taste things on Voyager. That is a huge difference to a hologram so gets it own name.

Technobable is meaningless tech soundings words that serve no distinction.

Granted I didn't finish the episode so I missed that, still Voyager is the worst when it comes to that. There are plenty of other examples.

The Robin Hood episode of TNG has to be the worst across all the series, everything about it is pure awful, and the one before it was a Barclay episode, probably the most annoying character...

He also has the worst haircut in history

I always assumed the worst episode would be something in Voyager..

Yeah, you'd also have to ignore his burgeoning relationship with Ziyal.

And there's also the context of a PG 90s network show will always treat any areas of controversy with the biggest of kid gloves. The only times they approached it was when it could be abstracted through symbolic alien species with the message being the whole focus of the episode. No way they'd have the stones to do it for simply background character context.

Yes, but it also has the best line in all of Star Trek so it evens itself out.

The Robin Hood episode is nowhere near the worst episode in TNG - that’d probably be Code of Honor - much less the whole series. Like, opinions and everything, but I just can’t wrap my head around that one, honestly. It’s a fun little adventure with some of the best lines in the show.

Barclay is, uh, very hit or miss for me, as a character. More miss than hit.
