DRM in Starfleet? Edit

Somebody needs to explain why software in Star Trek computers gets deleted on the local system when it is uploaded to a remote computer. For example, if The Doctor is uploaded to another ship's computer or the Portable Emitter, he will no longer be present in Voyager's computer, presumably because Voyager's computer deletes its copy of The Doctor after the upload completes. But why would a computer ever be programmed to do this by default?

Memory Alpha is not about filling in unsaid holes in canon, so any such speculative answer would not be permitted here. Maybe Memory Gamma or the Expanded Universe wikis.--31dot 20:11, November 13, 2011 (UTC)

Computers being cloned from carrots? Edit

Is that spam in the article? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 69.165.143.100‎ (talk).

No, it is not. - Archduk3 06:04, November 9, 2014 (UTC)
This information keeps being questioned or deleted on the pages it's on (this is the third "incident" I know of in maybe a good half year or so). I'm going to take the step of adding hidden notes explaining why not to delete, hope that's ok with everyone. -- Capricorn (talk) 15:34, November 9, 2014 (UTC)
