The Holodeck is also largely dependent on replicators.
The holodeck is a strange thing... sometimes it replicates things and you take them away with you when you leave (like when Wesley leaves and he remains wet), sometimes it's a projection of photon and forcefield and disappears the instant it passes the border. Like when Picard throws a book and we see it vanish instantly.
However, other than plot convenience, there doesn't seem to be any definite rule about it.
Transporter. It is what sets Star Trek apart from Lost In Space, Battlestar Galactica , Space:1999, Star Wars, etc.
But not "The Fly"...
Or StarGate (series I, II and III)
Or Doctor Who, Earth: Final Conflict, Buck Rogers... etc.
I wanted to say the holodeck, but since none of it is real, it's ultimately rather pointless. The replicator would let you make cool stuff to use in real life, though.
Well, the holodeck is kinda like tv and/or video games, except much better.
For me, it would be artificial/anti-gravity.
Or energy storage. My portable devices would love to draw upon the stored energy of a hand phaser.
There's no need for artificial anti-gravity. Just cut the artificial gravity off and you got it. In space the default state is zero-gravity.
The Genesis Device obviously.
Soran's star extinguisher is even better!
Of course, it pales in comparison to RED MATTER, that can turn anything into a black hole!
The tricorder. With the proper specification the device can analyze the human anatomy, scientific elements, and even engineering assemblies and circuitry. It's an instrumental problem solver.
Yes! I’m changing my vote to this.
Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.
It would be another vote for "Other", since Tricorder was not named on the list.
You’re thinking like a Klingon; thinking it as a weapon. It’s far greater than that.
Yeah, that one's the best. The practicality of any sustained space travel, even to the next planet in the same solar system, is 0.00% without it.
Doesn't it turn the matter into energy and deposits a copy? At least "Quark" made fun with who the real clone isn't...
Except photon torpedoes. It's definitely the best creation, even in making Synthahol - a liquid that, in TNG, has the flavor of real booze but doesn't intoxicate. But by VOY they get 7 drunk with it, and referenced by name (in "Timeless")
One can even boink in it, just don't ask about cleanup protocol... 90s Trek really wanted to bring it up... then they made the EMH who loved bragging about it to EMH mk II...
Except Kirk's era abandons it and nobody acts like it existed so there must be a big problem with the magic mushroom mechanism...
The iPADD, naturally.
'World peace' does not mean absence of individuals fighting or having conflicts, e.g divorce still exists for a start.
Humans are better than their present day ancestors, just as we consider ourselves to have improved compared to our how ancestors behaved 300 years ago in our culture. Improvement does not mean perfection
Artificial gravity , and/or
That tablet that seems to cure kidney issues
It even seems to make the kidneys grow back. I wonder if they have one for each organ of the body.
