Dec 17: 9:18 PM: Shouldn't the holodeck from Star Trek:TNG and later be included? Or is it more applicable to another trope? I know the characters are "meant" to have control over it (they never do), but often, it just provides a convenient way for the writers to put Data in a Sherlock Holmes setting, or Worf in the Wild West. The Inner Light may apply, too, although it seemed more purpose driven. But I'm new to tropes and a little dumb. Forgive me.
