Besides a grand new ship, one thing The Next Generation introduced fans to was an amazing new technology called the holodeck. Essentially a blank slate for the writers, it allowed our ship and crew to be put in situations that they never would have otherwise. In this episode of Earl Grey hosts Phillip Gilfus, Darren Moser, and Daniel Proulx discuss the technology as well as the stories and plot devices that were made possible by the holodeck.
