Star Trek has provided us with a chance to delve into the future of technology and discover what could lie in store for us in the next 400 years. We've explored the variety of technology that we want to see earlier, rather than later, and every day, scientists and engineers make new discoveries fuelled by dreams of reaching those heights.  Holosuites, however, could be a closer reality than once believed. Introduced in Star Trek: The Next Generation, the holodeck quickly became a fan favourite, allowing the writers to expand on the entertainments available to those posted on ship for long stretches of time as starships became mobile stations, and storytellers to explore the lines between reality and fiction, created by a perfect simulacrum. 

Taking a nosedive into the world of the holodeck, the series has shown us a variety of holoprograms to entertain and thrill, and to train and educate. We can slide through the scuba-diving in Hanauma Bay, or jumping into the training simulations of Operation: Fort Knox, experience the Klingon Rite of Ascension or take coffee in Café des Artistes. They recreated simulations of great Earth battles; the Hirogen sought the holodeck for Klingon war games, while training simulations allowed Doctors the independence to learn without harm. 

The holodeck also allowed the viewer a glimpse into the private life of the characters we know and love, with unforgettable moments. Picard role played as the eponymous Dixon Hiil in detective noir, Tom Paris as Captain Proton, Julian Bashir as a secret agent listening to the crooning melodies of Vic Fontaine, Data as a Deadwood gunslinger and Sherlock Holmes, while Janeway liked to kick back in Leonardo da Vinci's workshop. 

This week, we'd like you to have a think about what holodeck experiences you and your characters would like to indulge in. What could tempt you into the holodeck, or what does your character like to simulate? 

What's your favourite holodeck simulation from the series, and why?

And there's also Safe Haven from Voyager.  😛

Personally: I have opted for Leonardo da Vinci's workshop. The detail from it, his drawings on the wall. Janeway penning down her logs with a feather pen. It really brought you back into time. 

Sami, preferring a little more action and adventure, would probably choose for Beowolf. Testing her strength with the foes and whatnot.

Great Bird,  I wish we could've had more of Julian living his 007 fantasy.

Oh man... its a toss up between Dixon Hill (Im a sucker for detective noir like that) and Julian's 007 escapades (because I also like spy stories).... and then Vic Fontaine (I love that style of music and the setting)... so many choices.

 

(Also Data never was a Deadwood Gunslinger in his private life... that was Alexander, Worf and Deanna).

That'd be a cool spin off. Gritty detective noir in a former Federation colony. @Geoffrey Teller Wouldn't it?

I knew the dame was trouble the minute she walked through the door.  Her goodie-two-shoes smile said 'trust me' but her razor sharp gaze screamed 'I'm watching.'  The pay was too good, the job sounded too easy, and I knew I should've said no....but then I remembered that the only thing in my pockets was lint and a lousy crushed cigarette.  Something told me right then that I'd be the one paying for this.
