If you could own anything from any Star Trek, what would it be? Would it be a uniform? A weapon? A chair? Me, i would like to have one of Bones' Triquarter.Bones is my favorite character and to have something he used would be great. How about you.

Well I'm not so sure this would actually qualify as a "gadget" perse, but I would love to be able to travel via a transporter type thing...you know, "Beam me up Scotty?"...LOL. Just think we would never have to worry about being in traffic jams, or gas costs...just beam up to wherever you wanted in a few seconds

That's the one thing I wouldn't want to use. I enjoy the journey.I like traveling by train and car.I would really miss it.

I was in love with Captain Kirk and that Communicator was the best! We used to "play" the show and we'd get a piece of card board and cut about 3inches by 6 or something, a long narrow piece and then fold it in half long ways and then use crayons and draw "buttons" - especially a large circle for the button he would turn to get reception., then just put in in our back pockets like the captain did!!! We'd also do the same style of thing with cardboard only make is 6x12 or something and draw buttons on it for the keyboard at the controls. Amazing what we did back then with our imagenations. Kids these days, can't do much more than move their thumbs around! No offense to anyone - but you get my point. It is all done for them. All they have to do is sit there and watch.

Well the guy that invented the cell phone worked for Motorola and got the idea from Star Trek communicator! I saw the show about it and he was holding his first "cell phone" - it was huge!! And he said Star Trek was where he got the idea - same as with a cyberknife radiation machine! THe inventor got the idea from a similar contraption on Star Trek! Star Trek started the revolution into the new millenium 30 years prior!!!

I would definitely choose the transporter. It's so convenient! Oh, and also maybe the holodeck. It is so much cooler than any video game.

Hi, I think my favorite is the anti-grav unit from the next generation. I hate having to carry things and this would help greatly around the house. Just put it on there and push it freely around the house with minimal effort. Cheers, Tianna
