3D chess was all holographic. Prove the opposite.
Charlie Evans melted the chess pieces in Charlie X.
But after THAT they introduced holograms so no one would melt than again!
Naw, they kept the Antarian metal chess pieces.

"Prove the opposite."

Re: Holograms

They needed those Antarian metal chess pieces to defend themselves if some alien snuck aboard and got rid of all of the phasers. They can load the chess pieces into bamboo tubes and shoot them at the intruders!


Those pointy bishops really sting!

If we are taking TOS movies into account, how about the little biplane fighter game seen in the bar in The Search For Spock? Those little planes looked hologaphic to me, although hardly detailed or realistic.

They looked holographic to me too. Yes, they were crude three dimensional wireframe representations of biplanes. Here is a picture of it courtesy of trekcore.

Re: Holograms

No doubt a retro-themed bar with retro-themed entertainment...

Incidentally, what does it tell of the population demographics of San Francisco that this bar has so many people in Starfleet uniform present? Was McCoy/Spock's only hope of finding an unscrupulous civilian pilot really dependent on him going to a Starfleet-frequented joint? Or are there no other sort in SF?
