    I started to say the same thing. I would opt for the ship because everything being mentioned here, is there. And you can time travel, replicate anything you need, you have medical help and repair facilities that people might need if they were given a hoverboard or light saber in this day and age.

    You have people to teach you about the history of the cosmos and the ability to go where you want. You can forget about needing money (or lottery numbers) to get by. You can even come back to 2012 and park over the White house and drive the planet insane.

    You can beam up Obama and tell him a thing or two. You can stun entire cities and just generally become a pest.

    The girls are plentiful and perhaps some of that Romulin Ale is on tap.

    Good choice, Early . . . go for the Enterprise.

    Keep in mind that the movies are fake so the devices you all want do not work because they are just props. I think a better title would be: "if you could pick 1 WORKING gadget from any movie, what would it be?"

    No change that title to
    "if you could pick any WORKING gadget from any movie and you had the replacement parts, an instruction video on YouTube and tech support, what would it be?"

    You will probably end up erasing your own mind. Remember, some people often shoot themselves. ;)

    Naw, you will fall off the thing and damage your spine. Forget the hoverboard and sell the technology to the government. Or also ask for one of Dr. McCoys automatic bone healer dealy-O's

    Better yet, sell the tech to Apple so they can create ihoverPads. Apple has more cash than the government.

    People, for God's sakes think about your requests and understand that you need technical support, replacement parts, the required technical knowledge and power sources.

    What about the batteries? Did any of you ask for spare batteries or a recharger?

    Things go wrong and some of you need to account for the problems that will occur. You will end up killing yourself or being disappointed when your cool tech dies.

    Think with your brains people.

    I would replicate sh!tloads of batteries - maybe even some dilithium crystals and all the replacement parts I could need. obviously I would replicate my replicator.

    All you need is a replicator.

    It was a fun silly thread based in fantasy, from where most of these devices come.

    And don't forget about the [​IMG]

    I was going to say the Necronomicon Ex-Mortus from Evil Dead, but then I thought, well, I'd probably end up releasing a host of evil spirits upon myself. And that would be a bummer. And I might get sent back in time. Which could also be a bummer. On the plus side, I'd likely have some crazy stories. ;)

    But I think Early and Bob hit it right on with the Enterprise. Especially if it was loaded with a crew. :D

    Bad idea, I should think. After all, we know how that turned out.

    I am sticking with The Enterprise. And Early will be the science officer or he can be the captain for all I care. I just want to live there and play with the Holodeck.

    The holodeck would be pretty awesome. Something I've never understood, does the floor of the holodeck move like a treadmill so they don't walk into a wall?

    Also, you have their cool food machines - I can't remember what they are called.

    The "food machine" is a replicator, if I'm not mistaken. :)

    in my opinion.. the holodeck + replicator + Data (android) = solve over 50% of all the issues they come up against.

    The phone booth from Bill & Ted as long as I'm Bill and Ted has a replicator(the good kind from Star Trek not the bad kind from Stargate.

    If that doesn't fit the rules then I want a laser bread knife/toaster. I like toast.

    Yes, those replicators are bad! The two types are not to be confused.
