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

I was at the theater, practicing, and I didn't even know my lines for the second or third act! Crap! But that's not the issue. The issue was we couldn't figure out how to raise the pit up to be level with the rest of the stage without it bouncing around and everything falling over.

Somebody suggested: Well, since the whole thing is on a lift, let's just lower the reset of the auditorium instead! It's a rather deep shaft, so we can just keep lowering the stage, then lowering the rest of it into place until we're done with the show!

But then I did finally want to rehearse before the show, so I looked at the manual, and it said I had to press A+X+Down all at the same time. So I looked in the index to find where those buttons were. I only had the standard Wiimote, so I couldn't use any of the additions. I couldn't really figure out the diagram, since it looked kinda pixelated and blurry, but that didn't matter, because I couldn't even find the Wiimote!

Incidentally, the auditorium-on-a-lift isn't something I just pulled out of the air. I knew I had seen it somewhere before:

Now that's just overkill. Really cool overkill.
