** [[Recap/StarTrekVoyagerS7E7BodyAndSoul Body and Soul]]" - Tuvok use the holodeck to create a simulation of his wife (who's still waiting for him on Vulcan) so he can cure his [[MateOrDie Ponn Farr]] fever (even though it was explicitly stated in TOS that a [[MindlinkMates Mind Meld]] is a necessary part of the process, though it could have just been "blowing off the steam," so to speak, that meditation couldn't cure.)

** During one episode, Troi's mom Lwaxana becomes smitten with a virtual bartender in the Holodeck. She doesn't find out he's virtual until much later, and is rather mad that others didn't tell her. What she's really attracted to is the fact that she can't read his mind. She assumes it's because he has a very strong mental fortitude. Of course, it's really because he's just a simulation.

When Kira finds out she reprograms her image [[ButterFace with Quark's head on it]]. The rather unpleasant character who paid for the experience is not happy.

** [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] when Daniel Graystone creates a virtual copy of his wife Amanda after she leaves him because of his morally ambiguous actions. He makes a heartfelt confession to the virtual Amanda, who quickly forgives him, only for Daniel to admit that he was lying and she should have known better. He wants his ''real'' wife with every part of her independent spirit, not some mindless substitute who will just fall into his arms.
