Did Da Vinci Smell?

Imagine you are face to face with your childhood hero, on the holodeck of course but your hero is dead and an award winning holoprogram is as close as you're going to get. But this program is so realistic that you can barely stand to hunch over Leonardo's sketch table pressed up against his polymathic body because he absolutely stinks of unwashed renaissance man. And not just unwashed, undeoderized, unflossed, unwashingmachined, un just about everything you do without thinking to maintain a healthy clean personhood.

Would you adjust the holoprogram? Do holoprograms even go to this length of realism? Or is it a special extra you get in the Da Vinci fetish package only?

I think it was all sanitary and smelled of beeswax and flowers when Kathryn was hanging out there. I don't think she wanted full immersion.

ROFL. Stank hadn't crossed my mind so I presume I'd change that with haste. I imagined the smell of clay, burning embers, and the trail of the Captain's perfume.

Even Horses taking a dump smell like bananas and strawberries on the holodeck.

If they sanitized racism, then they probably sanitized the filth.

I never believed that Flint was suddenly mortal at the end of the episode.

He's still out there, and he should have bumped into Janeway because it would have been hilarious.

She would have been in shock.

Then again if she had studied Da Vinci which she obviously did she would have known all about Flint. Maybe in this era it's considered a dubious claim? Which it could well have been.

Re: Did Da Vinci Smell?

That's an interesting thought. But I also keep wondering if the smokey bars Riker and Picard visited in the holodecks of TNG actually had the smell such places have.

Even I as a 21st century human can't stand the air of those places and avoid them, so what about 24th century humans that have supposedly managed to eliminate smoking from their culture?

Did Janeway wear perfume? Does it still exist in the 24th century?

Of course it exists, civilizations cannot thrive without perfume.

I have over 100 bottles of perfume (that's the culled amount) and 200 bottles of perfume oils so you probably don't want to hear me talk about this subject for too long.

Of course he smells. He has a nose, after all.

Re: Did Da Vinci Smell?

On walking dead earlier this season, they met people who still had a working laundry.

They actually had slaves doing their laundry, making sure the whites were bleached and pressed.

I was like "Dude! Walkers are attracted to clean, and repulsed by filth, get your priorities straight."

DaVinci: "My dog's got no nose!"

"HOW DOES HE SMELL?"

"Awful!"

Let's not forget Picard's first trip to the holodeck. He paced around the conference room afterward, thrilled with the experience. He said, and I quote: "The sounds...the smells!"

Although I did wonder what would have been so fragrant about Dixon Hill's office...

^ Booze and cigarettes? I'd be OK with that. Well, the booze, anyway.

Perhaps. Or it is a more organic method instead of a harmful chemical but I assume they still appreciate scent and identity using a pleasant or occasional flirty scent.

Re: Did Da Vinci Smell?

You know that aliens smell weird to bad even when they are utterly clean?

Here's the truth.

Despite how long Mulgrew has to spend in the hair and make up chairs, Janeway rolls out of bed looking like that. Well maybe 30 seconds with a pin to put her hair up, but she is a flag officer in a combat ship, so if the red alert siren is screaming, she CANNOT spend 2 hours getting done up.

The purpose of the ready room, which is an office and bedroom right off the bridge, is that if she is naked, and the red alert klaxon starts blaring, Janeway is supposed to run to the bridge naked, deal with the most dangerous shit at hand, and then get a uniform on in her ready room when a pause presents itself.

If people smell bad they get shots to neuter their glands, but perfume is something that civilians deal with, and considering the peculiarities of first contact situations, the crew has to have a uniform odour to avoid possibly maybe a terminal allergic reaction from possible ingredients to those scents because misunderstandings are abundant.

Starfleet brand deodorant yes.

(Fancy?) Perfume no.
