Re: In the spirit of STNG's "The Chase": DNA data storage

"Broken Bow", too...

However, in general, Trek seems to go for the scifi trope of "crystals" being a powerful no-power data storage medium capable of defying time for aeons. Biological, potentially self-repairing data media are another way to go, but not the preferred one. Although those gel-pack computing aids from VOY might be an experiment on that other path.
