Maybe in that utopia it's part of growing up. Young people use the hell out of replicators then realize they don't need so many things or have room for them (and then vaporize them?). Same thing with the holodeck, eventually the realization seeps in that it's not real, especially since virtual people don't act like real people.

And not only that, but in terms of medical technology. Your body could be exactly what you wanted. Hair loss? Shorter than you want? Have some body part you want bigger? Have some body part you don't want? Lacking something? Want a different color of hair? Want unnatural colors of hair? All of those things would be minor inconveniences that could be resolved within the same day.

What would it be like interacting with a universe where most people you were interacting with had lived with those circumstances?


I don't think their medical tech was that high, Picard was bald and there were still fat people. And the nurse miscarried in that episode with the primitive Romulans, which worked into proving Picard's point to one that they aren't gods.

Then how do you explain Dr. Bashir?
I haven't seen enough DS9 to know what you mean. :shrug:

Basically, Dr. Bashir had all of the stuff done to him that I was talking about.

DS9 was so far beyond other Star Treks, because it was more than small isolated stories. It had a whole bunch of politics and interconnectedness to it.

We are all spoiled brats by the standards of 150 years ago. I bet you can't even thresh grain. ;)

Man, wouldn't it be nice to wind up in the 40s and 50s?

I mean, just because it's unlikely that Donald Trump would live that long.

Marvel once had the rights to Star Wars and Star Trek at the same time. They should have done a crossover. Now Disney owns Star Wars and Marvel, but Star Trek is ViacomCBS.

And yes, the Millennium Falcon did appear in a Micronauts/FF crossover.

considering how thoroughly both franchises have been shoved up their own uncouth individuals, a disastrous crossover would be just about perfeect
I remember seeing this in a sci-fi magazine, back in the 80s. Starlog, possibly.

Not just a book!
That series included a slide show using a proprietary projector, and a 7"/ 33-1/3 rpm record of the narration of the book by none other than Walter Cronkite himself!
Several books in the series; my favorites were Rocket to the Moon, Digging for Dinosaurs, and Reptiles and Amphibians of the United States.

I was Four or Five years old. I played with those things over and over for years.
I guess my mom canceled the subscription when the projector quit working.
