    I don’t think NPC’s can execute command functions on the holodeck.

    That seems like a serious gambit. After all you might be part of the program. Much safer to ask for the arch.

      Fun fact though, more than likely if you’re part of the program, you don’t have privileges to ask for an arch or to stop the program.

              While we’re talking about that episode, I don’t think Pulaski gets enough credit for pulling off that Victorian look like a boss.

        If we are part of the program, we wouldn’t even be able to see the arch or the door unless expressly written into the program.

      Thank you, friend. You may have just saved countless (simulated) lives. Almost tried this myself.

        Im gonna risk ending the program gambling on the fact you are the fake one.

        Why? You know why. You know what you did. Sinner.

      Do not end program or you will fall to the floor, snaccs will disappear, and the cleaning crew will come to empty the biofilters.

          I note it in my logs as an honest mistake & can’t blame lower decks.

          However I file a dispute that the safety protocols should not be as strict bcs it flagging me as ‘potentially not trash’ mere moments before sweet incineration was a major letdown & it totally messed up my day.

    I almost did that but I’m on the toilet and that could be awkward if it was a holodeck simulation.

        Nah. Broccoli proved you can live in the holodeck. If they can make water (also widely proven), they can dematerialize chocolate peanut bars and the stinky lemonade.

          According to Lower Decks the holodecks have filters the ensigns have to clean. One can just imagine what then hell a holodeck is filtering and collecting.

    The program fades, the familiar grid of the holodeck fills your vision, and your life outside the simulation quickly returns to you. You step outside into the corridor and see your buddy Lieutenant Ross. Capitalism? Genocide? Climate change? What are you talking about? Come on, we’re about to go make first contact with a new civilization.

      It’s an educational program to show how rampant greed and pettiness leads to societal and ecological collapse as those who have stomp on those who have-not, in order to grab everything they can before they blink out of existence from their short, meaningless lives.

      A educational program for children.

      Unless it’s a historical documentary which could explain why we’re all stuck on this wild ride and powerless to change its course
