A polled thread about thread polls.

An input thread would help me and I assume it would help others. I like polls but heard "why didn't you put that/that person in it" a few times. This will be a collaboration thread to gather input before posting a thread poll, but specifically Star Trek general only. I'll start the ball with a thread I had in mind and can use input for.
Poll question:
If you could have one piece of trek tech, what would it be?

Answers so far:
A Dermal Regenerator
A Universal Translator
A Food Replicator
A Transporter
A Warp Drive
A Cloaking Device
A Holodeck
Am I missing anything?

^I should add an airlock to the list so I can throw you out of it.

Why didn't you put airlock in your poll?

There are so many uses for it..

Hand phasers seem conspicuous by their absence in the questions.

Who in their right mind would vote for anything other than the holodeck.

The point of the poll is to find out.

A Food Replicator
A Transporter
A Warp Drive
A Cloaking Device
A Holodeck
A Phaser
An Android (Programmable and/or AI)
A Mobile Emitter (Programmable and/or AI. Also Visually Editable)
Phasers, an Android, and a mobile emitter added. Anything else?

Tricorder.

All those people who love the weather channel would be clammy handed with joy to get one of those things. Data about everything!

Re: A polled thread about thread polls.

^How'd I forget a Tricorder? This thread is doing it's job. I'll also add a Medical Tricorder. Where the Tricorder can scan everything, the Medical Tricorder can only scan biomatter. Though the Tricorder can do everything a Medical Tricorder can do, it can't heal you.

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

Answers so far:
A Tricorder (Everything is scannable)
A Medical Tricorder with Dermal Regenerator Attachment (Scans biomatter only)
A Universal Translator
A Food Replicator
A Transporter
A Warp Drive
A Cloaking Device
A Holodeck
A Phaser
An Android (Programmable and/or AI)
A Mobile Emitter (Programmable and/or AI. Also Visually Editable)
Leaving current question up for a bit longer but I think that's everything.

Re: A polled thread about thread polls.

There was a question like this a while back, and shuttles and various starships started getting named.

I think you should put a trombone in this poll. I know Riker uses his for special tech.

It was my thread and I pulled some of the answers from it.

I'm not including Starships because it's multiple technologies in one.

I was going to call the new polled thread "If you could bring any Star Trek tech to this world - Part 2: Poll edition" but that thread could stay separate in its own right.

Re: A polled thread about thread polls.

New Topic:
Poll question:
Which Captain would you follow?

Answers so far:
Archer
Kirk
Picard
Sisko
Janeway
The main captains are a given, any more note worthy captains I should add to the list. I'm also allowing multiple choices on this poll.
