    I don’t know – they may be the safest crew but they also might be the most bored. 😉

    Ssooo… kinda like the far distant future version of the Love Boat then, huh?

  3. Hahah!! Love it! I’d only add to the list of memorized phrases: Warp 8, engage!

    When the original Star Trek went through an early re-run, I was so over it because in every episode, the people on the bridge had to hang on as they shook violently or shifted or wobbled.More often than not, it seemed, someone ended up on the floor. Seat belts would have taken care of the problem beautifully. Hahah! And the observation of those standing for no apparent reason. Another good one!

    This was a lot of fun, Shannon.


    • Thanks, Becky! I’ve never gotten over the lack of seat belts on all these ships. You’d think that, with all their technological brilliance, someone would have thought of that.

      • A TV network called H&I is doing a re-run of all the Star Trek shows, from first episode on. They started last night, and I couldn’t help but think from time to time, “See? Seat belts!!” HA!


  4. Love this! I think the holodeck could definitely be replaced by a coffee shop, gym, library, and community center.

      Add a Klingon-proof dojo next to the gym and you’d be all set. No live weapons allowed of course.

    Nooooo!! You can’t get rid of the holodeck!!! But if I were a Starfleet Captain, I would not allow anyone under 18 on the bridge. Even if they were a genius who could solve every single problem you encounter….nope.

  6. Meagan says:

    Keep the holodeck – it could be your gym, training facility, etc without having to put in extra space for those rooms (and it could be scheduled for certain times of the day so everyone knows when to make use of said space)

    And it isn’t “Fire” it is “Fire at Will” just be sure your first officer isn’t named Will in case someone misunderstood your command 🙁

    If I were a Starfleet captain I would attach an emergency beacon and small taser on all female officer’s uniforms. Use the taser, set off beacon, help on the way within seconds. No more getting trapped with creepy psychics and former dictators! I would also have said ladies take some form of martial art so they can do more than yell out for security. (Troi being the constant subject of kidnap/mental torture made me mad.)

What do you think?
