I realise that, but I have to suspend my disbelief! So somehow, people have become prudes in the next few hundred years...Metahive wrote:It's called Prime Time TV Slot.

Haven't you seen 'Hollow Pursuits'? It was his first appearance, and everyone was calling him Broccoli behind his back (that nickname was the coolest thing Wes ever did, IMO). Picard ordered everyone to stop using the nickname, then accidently called Reg Broccoli to his face. I'm guessing you haven't seen 'Hollow Pursuits'? It's the very episode in question, with Reg's holodeck fantasies...
A somewhat tame soft-porn setting featuring Troi as the 'Goddess of Empathy'.The Romulan Republic wrote:I don't know exactly what said shenanigans were, so can you elaborate?
Quite true. Leaving it to our imagination gives a wide space for dirtiness...The Romulan Republic wrote:Also, while we never saw anything explicit, DS9 indicated that Quark ran some fairly dirty holodeck programs.
That is a possibility, backed up by Quark's dirty programs (and the Ferengi in general). There is also variation between individuals, too. L'waxana Troi was certainly not a prude, so it doesn't extend to all Betazoids...The Romulan Republic wrote:And, of course, there's Risa.
Maybe's its something that varies from world to world. Vulcans are prudes. Maybe Betazoids are too. Doesn't mean the entire Federation is. And of course, there are varrying definitions of prude.
Though it seems strange to me that any Betazoid could be a prude, what with being empaths and all- "Hey! How dare you feel like that while you're staring at my boobs!"
