Here we are in the 24th century (maybe it happened in the original show too, but I don't specifically remember any instances where they use flashlights), with all this amazing technology. Warp engines, transporters, holodecks, androids, replicators, etc. etc. And yet, when someone needs to go explore a cave or something, it seems like flashlights haven't changed or improved at all (except for the lack of handles). Does anyone else feel like a 24th century flashlight should just be able to light up a whole cavern like it was midday? I feel like that's not a big leap.
