Re: When did voyager go wrong?
If really would have to work like that, for example you always hear the joke about the person who has to clean out the holodeck after the orgies etc, but the reality is if you swallow any bodily fluid of a holographic person, it can't be good for you if that suddenly disappears from your stomach when you leave. Instead it would be replicated, and anything you leave in the holographic person is going to be broken down in the same way you put used plates back in the replicator.
Replicated spitswaps with a hologram is something I'd never considered. Then there's the issue of whether the glass and the drink it contains are real or simulated, same with food when you're carrying the plate.
