I would keep a Warp Drive.
But what would you be doing with it?

^I already stated that the Warp Drive choice gives you the ship.

I wish to do something related with space in the future, and the original poster said that the Warp Drive also gives you the ship.

Ever have one of 'THOSE PEOPLE' that just enjoy pushing your buttons? Next time they do, push the trigger button on the phaser (heavy stun of course) and you will have some free time to rest and relax. Of course, they may need multiple sessions to get the point across to them.

Sounds like it might come in handy against TSA employees.

I'm afraid if I had a holosuite and a food replicator, I'd set up autopay on my bills, go in there, and never be seen again.

HA!...which is preCISely why I did not choose a Holodeck...I would succumb to holodiction in about 3.2 femto-seconds...and I truly would go where no man has gone before...

Hmmm...it's a thought at that...do they ever wear, say, red shirts or jackets?...

There is applications that the phaser could do that's being missed in this thread but with one you could survive in a lot of situations. Figure you're in the woods. You could chop down trees for shelter, hunt, and defend yourself. It'll be the god of Swiss Army knifes.

...do not know why, but I am picturing the primates from "2001" dancing and ululating while holding a phaser found in their territory (left by some version of some timeline thing, no matter) and then having it accidentally go off...GOTta cut down on the Romulan Ale
