Hi everybody. I have a question about Star Trek. In the holodeck, with safety protocol activated, is it possible that people can actually feel real pain?

For example, if I climb a mountain in the holodeck, and I scratch my arm with a rock, I can actually feel the pain?

And my injury, once I finish the action in the holodeck, still remain or no?

thanks in advance for your help. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at {{{2}}}.

The safety protocols do not prevent a user from feeling pain, they only prevent serious injury and death. If you scratch your arm on the holodeck, unless your arm is a holographic arm, it will really be scratched. 31dot (talk) 22:53, August 20, 2013 (UTC)

So if my arm is real, I have the scratch also when I call the simulation off? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at {{{2}}}.

That's correct. 31dot (talk) 23:18, August 20, 2013 (UTC)
I join as well, asking the following. Is it possible for the holodeck to create an holographic injury and to associate to it some kind of simulated pain as well? Thx. -- 23:38, August 20, 2013 (UTC)
The holodeck could restrain your body to simulate an injury. Holograms have also reached into flesh-and-blood bodies to cause injury ("Revulsion"). 31dot (talk) 23:44, August 20, 2013 (UTC)
