Re: If you were on the Enterprise D, what would you do?

What I would do, is ask. What ship it was? What happen to it crew? And, why was I beam on board?
Then I would order the computer to set course for the nearest star system at warp 7. I would move the ship to keep any Earth governments from sending a man spaceship up and try to board the ship. One thing you don't want, is to have someone during this time period to get a hold of a Federation ship like the Enterprise.

Ship's phasers on stun, and put the entire middle east to sleep until they can behave themselves.

Right, because there is still a middle east in the 24th century.

I would mine the Enterprise for technology and bring it to Earth, what I introduced (and didn't) would be pretty subjective on my part admittedly. Medical advances would come first. Followed closely by power production technology, not antimatter, but working fusion reactor designs that could be reproduced on Earth. See if the Enterprise's life support technology could be up-scaled to clean the environment, have it available to industrial plants so that their discharge would be environmentally neutral. Cheap water desalinization.

Phaser technology to disintegrate land fills, nuclear and toxic waste. As much as possible, deliberately make phaser tech "bulky" to slow it's introduction onto battlefields (wouldn't stop it in time).

Stuff in the main computer memory would be historically interesting.

Re: If you were on the Enterprise D, what would you do?

Too many things to list and some I'd not even want to... :P

Although I think the first thing anyone should do is make sure the ship isn't going to fall out of orbit or warp core breech... lol.

Oddly enough, this is a recurring fantasy. Although I usually go with the 1701-E and get their via Q deciding to have some fun by giving a 21st century human such an advanced thing and see what happens.

Lets say you we;re living your life, and suddenly after a moment of disorientation you find yourself standing on the transporter pad, there is no one in the room. You walk off the platform, approach the door and it opens, you look out into an empty corridor, the lights are on and everything is functioning, only there is no people. After walking for some time, you pass a window showing the Earth as seen from space, through another window you see the Earth's moon, still no people, not even when you enter the turbolift and go to the Bridge. So what would you do?
This sounds like another thread....

Am I a trekkie(or trekker as the case may be) with all the knowledge of the trek universe that I have seen? If not, I get beamed aboard a strange ship. I wander around a lot and probably starve to death because I don't know how anything works.
However, if I am a trekkie/er, I would know which ship or station I am on judging by the consoles. I wouldn't have a clue as to how to get myself beamed back home (seeing as how it was probably a transporter malfunction anyway). I would go to 10 forward/mess hall and get something to eat/drink. Then I would find my way down to Engineering where I would find out the warp core was in danger of a breach which I could not stop even if I was an engineer (hence the lack of people) I go to the shuttle bay and lo and behold there is a warp shuttle there for me that can fly on auto pilot. I somehow tell the the computer to let me out before the core breaches and it believes me and I get away just before boom. Now, why Red Alert wasn't sounding while I was getting someing to eat is beyond me.

Re: If you were on the Enterprise D, what would you do?

I'd smile and enjoy the fact that I *finally* had a worthwhile TNG dream.


Can't answer to "but if it really happened", because it wouldn't. The Enterprise would never be deserted unless it was abandoned for catastrophic reasons or a barium sweep. Or... "Q" somehow took an interest in my petty little life and decided to have some fun, cloning a fully functional Enterprise D and putting me on it, like a rat in a maze.

Re: If you were on the Enterprise D, what would you do?

Baryon, not Barium...though a Barium sweep sounds highly unpleasant for its own reasons.

Don't forget to grab the other thing she hides behind there, too.

I read the OP to suggest it's present day when we mysteriously appear on the ship.

First look at this thread - and this was my first thought as well. Head to Ten Forward and have a few stiff drinks. Yes, indeed.
