Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

Aliens will harvest your brains

Remember 1408? Not the year, the movie I saw a few days ago. I have not been afraid of the dark maybe I was five or six years old. Until Sunday night, when I said to myself, "Boy, that movie was weird." That's what tripped some hidden, buried fear that caused me turn on the lights in the middle of the night, to not even be able to shut my eyes for more than a few seconds before opening them again, just to make sure nobody was standing at the foot of my bed with an axe. I should be so thankful that they would be going after my bed.

It was a strange feeling. "I'm not a child," I said to myself. "I'm 20 years old. Come on!" But to no avail. I was eventually able to convince myself that the movie was most likely not to come true, after having remembered something similar that had happened when I was younger.

When I was maybe seven or eight years old, I watched a TV "documentary" about how there were probably aliens, and they would probably steal your brains in the middle of the night. And it was hosted by Johnathan Frakes, so it all must be true. I remember for about a year after that I was scared half to death every night--one night in particular--that an alien would come take me away. Frankly, I'm half-convinced they did, considering how I turned out.

I remember that one night still, incredibly vividly. I was sleeping on the floor in the living room for some reason. I had fallen asleep (finally, after worrying for what seemed like hours) only to wake up in the middle of the night, to see three long claws hanging over my face. I didn't move for the longest time, wondering why the alien hadn't taken me. Was it dead? Was it waiting for me to fall asleep again? Could it not sense me if I didn't move?

I later found out it that was only the tassels on the edge of the blanket I was sleeping with. Stupid blanket, giving me renewed alien fears for another year and a half.
