Re: If you owned one item of Treknology

I would not want a transporter because it might kill you and create a new replica of you every time you go someplace.

Also, if the transporter existed, it would quickly fall into the wrong hands and be used for many kinds of crimes. Burglary and kidnapping just for starters. One of the scariest uses: a bomb delivery device.

The replicator might be nice, but using it would be expensive. It would draw a lot of power, and you'd need to supply it with mass-equivalent matter to convert into whatever you are replicating.

The older I get, the more likely I'd be to choose the bag of tricks from a 24th century sickbay.

On my worst day, I'd ask for Rojan's belt-clip device that reduces people you don't like to convenient little cuboctahedrons. The trunk of my car would fill up with those things.

A holodeck.

Would I get lessons so I could program it properly or would everyone I created look like they'd been made by a 3 year old?

One item? I'll take the Enterprise-D. That should cover just about everything else.

It's easily a replicator for me.

Yep, a replicator. "Gee, who knew that old shoebox in my attic would just so happen to contain $10m worth of rare baseball cards?! I wonder if my grandmother's old jewelery box has anything of comparable value..."

When I started the thread, I saw mentions of DS9, a Klingon bird of prey, and a runabout. Unless I missed someone, I think you're the first to mention an Enterprise. I thought it would be one of the earliest answers.

DS9.
I dunno... you'd be hosed pretty fast unless you had O'Brien around to help integrate Cardassian, Bajoran, and Federation technology (not to mention argue with the computer).

And when you take possession, make sure you rip out all the neurozene gas emitters and embedded recordings of Gul Dukat (in case of Bajoran revolt).

Re: If you owned one item of Treknology

I think I would like to upgrade my bird-of-prey to the Enterprise-E. With alot of post-Nemesis upgrades. First of all the bridge needs more shielding and increased armor. And additional replicators devoted to weapons production. So that I NEVER RUN OUT OF TORPEDOES.

Re: If you owned one item of Treknology

Well if we're allowed to choose whole ships, I think I'll pick a Galaxy-class starship. Sure the Sovereign class has a lot of nice updated tech, but I grew up with good ol' 1701-D. I still think the Enterpise D is the most beautiful ship in Starfleet, inside and out.

Re: If you owned one item of Treknology

Doesnt a holodeck have a replicator built in?

If not, can I get a holodeck and replicator without taking a whole ship? Is power included? If not, you would almost have so take a ship/shuttle. What about maintainance? Does Data count as a piece of technology?
