What year was the holodeck invented? I didn't see that listed in the article. Bonus points if you can find the episode this was mentioned it.

Thank you.

Which species? The Federation had it after other civilizations. There was a sorta version in Enterprise. It first showed up on the Enterprise in TNG however we know from VOY that it was around long before that. It was upgraded by the Bynars during the first year of the Enterprise-D's mission to make it more realistic...sorry, can't really answer this one as it has no answer. — Morder (talk) 13:31, August 18, 2011 (UTC)
I'd like to know when the federation got it. --CGPGrey 14:00, August 18, 2011 (UTC)
(edit conflict)For future reference, questions about article content should go on the relevant article's talk page. Regarding the question, I don't believe an exact year was ever mentioned in canon. The only clues about it are already mentioned in the article(The Xyrillians and the "Flashback" comment). The Animated series mentioned Recreation rooms, an room that employed holographic technology but not to the extent of a holodeck. If you have evidence of a specific year I'd be interested in seeing it- if it is from a canon source.--31dot 13:37, August 18, 2011 (UTC)
