The "broken Holodeck" episodes of Trek always bothered me as completely non-nonsensical.
I mean, just turn the damned thing off!
Startled looking Ensign #742(b): "Commander Riker! Captian Picard, Data, Dr. Crusher, and Cousellor Troi are all trapped on the Holodeck sir, and we need each of their particular skills to save the colony and ensure everyone in the Federation can have their weekly helping of sunshine and Lolipops! Whatever are we going to do to keep them from having an exciting adventure in a completely fictional world?!" Commander Riker: "Excellent Exposition Ensign, put yourself up for promotion, you can be 742(a) next week, and number one in my quarters anytime. *wink* But to the matter at hand, Riker to Engineering, The Captain's stuck on the Holodeck again, please cut power to the holodeck." Geordie: "I can't commander, the system's been over-ridden by some contrived super-genius yet easily deceived mastermind, possibly another hologram given sentience. And you do know know how much Captain Picard enjoys matching wits with sentient holograms." Riker: "Understood, I'm on my way." *turbolifts to Engineering... or is that Turbodrops, the bridge is above... nevermind* Riker: *punches Geordie* " Dammit Geordie, we don't have time for games, we have to get that Holodeck shut down or we don't get any Lollipops this week!" Geordie:*puppy-dog visor* "But... but... we'll get our sunshine, right?" Riker: "No... I'm afraid not. Not unless we can rescue the captain from the Holodeck. You! Broccoli... Barky...Bingo..." Barkley: "Barkley, Sir, Lieutenant Regin..." Riker: "Yeah, don't care, do you have any ideas?" Barkley: "We..we..well sir, we could invert the..the..the phase manifold of the secondary EPS coup...." Riker: "Too long, bored. Dammit, where's Wesley when you need to just tell someone to Shut Up. Geordie! Show me where you're having the problem." Geordie: "Right here sir." *points at power conduit that has mysteriously appeared inside a panel on Engineering* "We've tried everything, the green button, the blue button, we even tried BOTH buttons at the same time!" Riker: "And that didn't do it?!" Geordie: "No sir, whatever Machiavellian mastermind the captain has accidentally farted into existence this week is a clever one, I'm not even sure if the buttons are still hooked up!" Riker: "Did you try the yellow button?" Geordie: "Twice!" Riker: "What about the red button?" Geordie: "Red button? What red button?" Riker: "This one." *presses firing stud on his phaser, destroying the power conduit in a shower of sparks* *lights go off in half the ship*
*a distant THUD reverberates through the ship* Picard: "Dammit Riker, what have I told you about interrupting my Holodeck sessions? I was moments away from convincing Julius Caesar that he was nothing but a sophistcated illusion of his own twisted mind and having him delete himself from the program. And really, I mean, Data was on the 4th story of the building, it'll take a week to patch up the hole he left in the floor, not to mention the screaming from the children he landed on in the daycare downstairs." Riker: "Yakkity yak, no time, we're going to miss the Lollipop delivery." Picard: "Oh, really, haven't a moment to lose then, to the Turbolift!"
*cue end credits*
Hahaha! That was awesomeFeor! I can't stop laughing!
There are so many possibilities to try in a holodeck I can't pick only one. I guess my top pick would be at an archeological dig in Egypt.....that or a beach, somewhere tropical LOL!
