    Industrial Replicators. If nothing else, by itself, it would change the way we dealt with the physical world in a way that 3-d printing is currently dreaming about doing in forty years.

    But, to make a replicator work, you need amazing computers and components that could be rearranged to make holodecks and transporters...and maybe gravitic deck plates, deflectors, fusion generators and a miriad of other cool stuff.

    But, again, even without that, the replicators would revolutionize everything....That's what I want.

    You got it, have fun :)

    Personally, I just have more fun when I´m limiting myself a little :)

    Definitely a warpdrive :). All of that other stuff is small business compared to the ability to explore the universe.

    Data so he can build and program a replicator.

    Am I the only one who thinks Earth isn't ready for warp?
    I don't think Data would.

    I don't really think you'd have less pollution. You gotta figure that a transporter would take heavy duty power


    But i'd go with a Replicator.. It will work fine because to "load" it you just stick something in and it scans it.. Boom more of the same.

    I'd have to go with two...

    Transporter, and a Varon-T Disruptor. Then I'd get rid of our Terrorist problems.

    If I had to be very strict in the selection I would choose Dr. McCoy's kidney growing pills (STIV)... sounds like a patent medicine.

    Otherwise... replicators (with supporting tech)

    I forgot to post the actual polled thread on this topic -
    http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=230137

    While this Trek Tech thread is focused on the technical aspect of choices, the links General Trek thread is just opinions on the matter.

    ^^ I would say that greatly depends on the details. If you put in electricity and got out a controlled gravitational force, then yes. But if it requires a whole lot of M/AM plasma, then no.

    The 23rd century can afford to feed its gizmos in ways we can not.

    Of course, that's just as true for replicators, holodecs and what ever else.

    Interesting question: if you put in a kilowatt of power and the gave plate converts this at, say, 0.1% efficiency, what units would you measure the field in? Newtons? Newtons per second? Newton-meters per second?

    Thats true. I could take heavy duty power to run a grav-mat.

    I'll take mine back and say cheap/safe/reliable Fusion Power. With cheap power money could be spent elsewhere on other things.
