The holodeck on the Starship Enterprise is one of the most fascinating places where stories have taken place.
Crew members fell in love with the characters.
Captains used it for escape.
Engineers used it to answer more difficult questions and run simulations.
Court cases were heard and run within their walls.
Villains used it to entrap members of the crew.
Overall, it’s the amusement park of space. Do you have a favorite holodeck episode?
How about the one where Data becomes Sherlock Holmes?
Did you see the one where Riker falls in love with Minuet?
Were you there when Barclay’s holoaddiction is discovered?
Did it freak you out when Janeway’s holodeck characters are roaming around the ship?
How emotional was the end when the holographic Doctor created a family?
I could go on but this is supposed to be short. No doubt you have your favorites.
Here’s the question I’d like to pose:
Do you believe VR rooms like the holodeck are going to become the primary means of entertainment in the future and why or why not?
