Missing 24th-century Technology.

When creating the technology used in Star Trek: The Next Generation, the creators had impressively good vision of what the future might bring. They were not perfect, however, and on this episode of Earl Grey hosts Phillip Gilfus, Darren Moser, and Daniel Proulx discuss the tech that seems to be missing—or at least used sparingly—in the 24th century. We take a look at more than a dozen types of technology ranging from seat belts to hypospray guns and more!

Earl Grey 5: Holographic Death Trap

The Holodeck.

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.
