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

Ice, On Ice!

Whenever I hear of a show being on ice, I think of three things:

  1. I'll need to bring my coat
  2. Couldn't they have just drank it plain?
  3. Oi

I mean, seriously, Romeo and Juliet on Ice? It's confusing enough without people pirouetting instead of swordfighting and suddenly Horatio is dead, and I'm thinking to myself, "How the hell did Horatio even get out of Denmark?"

Some things have a natural progression though. Once you've expanded your customer base to its greatest extent, you can continue to expand by putting it on ice. I know people would watch NASCAR a lot more often if it were on ice.

Then there's some things that already are on ice. I mean, putting the child's game Red Rover on ice, you just get every single community ice skating rink you've ever been to with everybody falling over more than moving around. Or you put the Ultimate Fighting Championship on ice and you get... well, I guess you just get hockey. The fighting's the only thing that makes hockey interesting anyway. Literally like 99% of the time the game ends up in a 0-0 tie, and they just have to go with whoever has less blood on the ice wins.

Hockey on ice, well, that's probably coming dangerously close to Brockian Ultra-Cricket.
