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 188.218.84.140 (talk).

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 188.218.84.140 (talk).

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. -- 79.51.172.26 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)
