Besides, you get to be a cartoon character in VR. On the holodeck you're just you. So I'll get my total immersion VR while you play with Quark.
P.S.: It's Trecker.
Meh, Lawnmower Man (the movie) had VR, and that was years and years ago. And we've had stories about FTL travel and time travel for yonks. House is getting dangerously close to Jump the Shark territory, which is probably why I don't watch it much any more.
Actually, I believe the correct term is "Trekker". And I'm sure even that term is somewhat old-school and there is some new-fangled term the fan-base loves to use.
Despite all the good laughs, I'm not sure if this thread has any usefulness in improving the signal-to-noise ratio that AVS strives to maintain, so I won't be surprised if it gets locked/killed...
