I'd say a holodeck. But holodeck, replicator and transporter are connected technologies. And to run a holodeck, you need an insane amount of energy.

Re: If you could have one piece of trek tech, what would it be?

^We covered the energy thing (and warp ship) earlier, choices come with the things you need to make them work (including power sources). I removed the replicator from the holodeck too but I guess it would need the transporter to do certain things (like skydiving), so it has it but you couldn't teleport anywhere outside of the holodeck with it.

Why would you need a transporter for skydiving? I'd imagine the holodeck would just create the illusion of you falling by making the air move up past you at your terminal velocity.

I gave a bad example but I do know holodeck's have transporters, for whatever reason.

I'm surprised no one chose a universal translator. It would sell for millions and clear up a lot of misunderstandings.

Hmmm, interesting question... for me, it comes down to Transporter or Warp Drive. One would allow me to effortlessly travel the Earth, the other would allow me to explore beyond our solar system. Both would keep me occupied for a lifetime.

Probably Warp Drive, since I would be the first human (or one the first) to explore that vast unknown. Very intriguing to see what's out there.

A warp drive for space exploration.

I'm curious if I put "Augmenting Injection (your choice of what)" on there, how many people would have voted for it?

I voted for the UT, but if I had a free choice I'd go with complete and unfettered access to LCARS. Got to be better than, I.E., google, safari, bing etc.

LCARS would make Google look like a book a 6 year old wrote but it wouldn't really be fair as a choice. The schematics of everything in the poll could be found in there. I'd say out of the choices, the Tricorder would be the next best thing. Theoretically, a tricorder would be able to connect to any transmitting source (from radio waves to the Internet). You'd have access to all of today's information, as long as it's being transmitted.

Transporter. I HATE driving. I HATE walking. I HATE riding a bike to where I need to be. I HATE hopping on a plane. I hate transportation. Get me from point a to point b in a fraction of a second.
