Who is the better servant and why?
the way Maihar'du reacted when the Negus was making new rules of acquisition... thats why he is better.
Maihar'du was great, but Mr. Homn had to deal with Lwaxana. That can't be easy.
Mr. Homn gets my vote. I just think "which servant would I like to have if I wanted one", and Mr. Homn it would be. He just has this unique quiet sassy attitude that I appreciate a lot.
I voted Maihar’du.
He was on the ball enough to realize when he master was under alien influence.
I went with the holographic option. That way a sentient being isn't in servitude, and I don't have to pay anyone.
May I ask how it would look like?
I wouldn’t want a holographic butler to look human or otherwise sentient. We see so many holograms used as emotional blankies.
If there’s no actual emotion there I don’t want to feel there is.
Unless the being likes to serve? Then again, what makes a sentient being like to serve? Altruism? Naah, that's too simple a possibility. Which isn't to say it's not a possibility, since given the lengthy array of human personality types - of which some can be found in other sentient beings as well as others that other sentient beings have that we don't have... I apologize if anyone took a nap while reading that, I am known for rambling on and on and on and on and on just a tad...
It's Star Trek. I don't want to have to deal with the ethical ramifications when my holo-butler suddenly becomes sentient and accuses me of being a slavemaster.
A holo-butler with the face of Dr. Lewis Zimmerman? The beginning of another holo strike!
