If I had to be very strict in the selection I would choose Dr. McCoy's kidney growing pills (STIV)... sounds like a patent medicine.

Otherwise... replicators (with supporting tech)

I'll put this here. It's not quite a repost and it's in general because it spans multiple series and it's more opinion than spec specific. It also has a poll.

http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=230098
I forgot to post the actual polled thread on this topic -
http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=230137

While this Trek Tech thread is focused on the technical aspect of choices, the links General Trek thread is just opinions on the matter.

^^ I would say that greatly depends on the details. If you put in electricity and got out a controlled gravitational force, then yes. But if it requires a whole lot of M/AM plasma, then no.

The 23rd century can afford to feed its gizmos in ways we can not.

Of course, that's just as true for replicators, holodecs and what ever else.

Interesting question: if you put in a kilowatt of power and the gave plate converts this at, say, 0.1% efficiency, what units would you measure the field in? Newtons? Newtons per second? Newton-meters per second?

Thats true. I could take heavy duty power to run a grav-mat.

I'll take mine back and say cheap/safe/reliable Fusion Power. With cheap power money could be spent elsewhere on other things.

That, and there's a few people's molecules I'd like to sprinkle around the galaxy. Not all in the same Sector though.

Probably medical equipment or a replicator since that could help the most people.

Re: If you could bring any Star Trek tech to this world... ?

Transporters, easily. No more traffic jams or drunk drivers; no more hijacked airplanes; no more cruise ships run aground. And a lot less pollution.
Transporters would be incredibly useful. I'm not sure they would eliminate shipwrecks, though, since most people go on cruises for pleasure, not because they're actually trying to get somewhere for mundane business, shopping, etc. But if a shipwreck did occur, transporters would be very helpful in extracting trapped passengers and the injured.

But i'd go with a Replicator.. It will work fine because to "load" it you just stick something in and it scans it.. Boom more of the same.
Replicators have to be programmed, though. I thought it was a more complicated process than just scanning something and getting more. If you don't have an original to scan, how would you ever get original things?

In TNG eps(Samartan Snare) The Pakled's "scan" Geordi's phaser in their replicator to make more. Geordi even comments on this fact. So i'm guess as long as you have something to scan and the mem/power/bulk"stuff" you can make as many copies of anything you want.

I would be voting for Warp Drive technology so we can go somewhere when we ultimately kill off our own planet.
