    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.
    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.

    I for one would like the dermal regenerator.

    The point of the poll is to find out.

    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!

    ^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.

    Leaving current question up for a bit longer but I think that's everything.

    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.

    ^And an airlock (see third post).

    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.

    New Topic:
    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.

    Are Generals the same as Captains when it comes to the Military? If so Martok and Sran are in or should I re-word the question to include them?

    Edit: Googled it and Generals would be ranked 3 levels above a Captain if Captains were military. I'll title it "Star Trek leaders you would follow". Also ading Pike

    Taggart.

    ...

    What do you mean that's not Trek? Okay, seriously, though. Jellico. That guy was badass.

    ...

    Okay, SRSLY, though, I know he only appeared in the first pilot and its later adaptation, but it's probably good form to include Pike, n'est-ce pas? (I would also have said Rachel Garrett of the Enterprise-C, but we only get to see her for like ten minutes of screen time if that before the writers whack her.)

    From the tech poll:

    Don't those things always malfunction and attack you and hijack your ship and such? I figure TNG is mostly a technological cautionary tale: "The holodeck. Invent it... and look what happens." :p

    ^Jellico isn't a bad addition. People may want a more strict captain. Also adding Kira, she's a major.

    Any more Leaders that should be on the list? I'm hesitant on adding Ransom. Should I put the questionable Captains as well?
