Re: Death & the holodeck

I might be wrong, but I just don't think you're allowed to create copies of real people who are alive or who have died recently (say, last 50 years or so) on the holodeck without overriding something. Geordi felt justified to do that, because he needed help solving a life threatening problem. Barclay was abusing his Engineering responsibility to maintain the holodecks to make things he wasn't supposed to. And Captain Picard recreated an old flame, but he's the Captain - he can do what he wants.
