Pardon? AFAIK, "Holodeck" is essentially the entire game environment, not just a single piece of hardware. You can not take it down without taking down the whole game because it is the whole game.There are only two shards total that we players have access to most of the time--Holodeck, which is the "live" environment, and Tribble, which is the beta test environment (open to Gold users only).
