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 found this on my hard drive. Thought it was pretty funny, and should share it. It's a script for an infomercial about the Blue Pill (as opposed to the Red Pill)

MORPHEUS: I used to be just like you. Complacent. Alright with where the world was going. I ignored that itch at the back of my mind telling me something… was wrong. But the itch didn’t go away. It just got worse. Finally, my doctor told me, I was suffering from reality.

Kids playing at a playground, in the background. Morpheus and a Man sit at a park bench. Man gives Morpheus a box of “The Blue Pill”

V.O.: Are you one of millions of Americans suffering from reality? Now there’s help: The Blue Pill, carefully engineered over years by an advanced artificial intelligence helps you to forget about reality and fall back into bliss. 9 out of 10 doctors recommend the blue pill for that unfortunate itch.

ARCHITECT: I am the architect. I created the false reality pulled over your eyes every waking moment of your lives. I recommended the Blue Pill to every one I know. It’s that good. There are several treatments on the market, but the blue pill is the only one certified by every certification company you humans could come up with. Don’t be duped by knock-off drugs like mescaline, cocaine, or the red pill.

MORPHEUS: It’s amazing! I don’t feel like trying to understand what’s going on at all any more!

V.O.: Side effects of the blue pill include nausea, vomiting, paranoia, ocular degradation, being stuck in a pool of goo for the rest of your life, financial hardships, loss of will to live, and loss of memory. The blue pill should not be taken by women who are nursing or pregnant, or who intend to become pregnant. If you experience a loss of life, it may be a sign of a rare but serious side-effect and should be reported immediately. If reality lasts for more than four hours, contact your doctor immediately. If nobody can be reached, or if symptoms of reality do not subside within one day, stop taking the blue pill and call the Agent Hotline. An agent will be assigned to manage your case personally.

MORPHEUS: Thank you, blue pill! I don’t know how I’d live without you.
AGENT: You wouldn’t.
