Insurance for Starfleet ships would be a nightmare. The ships are constantly investigating dangerous anomalies and getting into fights. But that’s not even the most dangerous thing that a Starfleet ship does. There’s a less obvious danger hidden in plain sight on most Starfleet ships. A piece of technology that is so ridiculously prone to failure or malfunction that it is one of the best-known Star Trek cliches. Of course, this is the holodeck.

It would seem that every time an episode centers on the holodeck, something has to go wrong with it. This could be as simple as the doors locking and the safety protocols turning off. However, that is only the start of what could go wrong with the holodeck. It could even, with a little outside interference, take on a mind of its own and actively try to hunt you down and kill you. We can only assume that the engineers responsible for the holodeck safety protocols are the same engineers responsible for the tendency of bridge consoles to explode. There are a lot of problems that could be pointed to in the holodeck’s safeguards. Which holodeck malfunction do you think was the worst? Let us know your thoughts on the holodeck’s safety below!

:D Haha, nice observation. 

Do they have their own sub-department? 😛

This line got me immediately! I wouldn’t even want to think of Insurance on the Atlantis. Especially after we destroyed the Nacelle.

I think it is the sheer volume of critical and life-threatening incidents that is most troubling. It stands out in a time where most systems seem to undergo intense quality testing before being installed and would cause a ship major downtime for refits in the dry dock in case of safety-related malfunctions.
