The acting of science

Which of the science aspects of the show did you find were most fun for you to play with as an actor?

Picture We always loved it when we had a holodeck episode, when we had an opportunity to dress up and to play different characters. The Holmes and Watson episodes for Data and Geordi, the Robin Hood episode, you know, those were a lot of fun for us.I think the holodeck was a very cool concept, you know. You can create a three dimensional reality ... I mean, how cool is that? There would be no Star Trek unless there were transporter malfunctions. There would be no point to having a transporter unless it broke down or trapped your transporter pattern or mixed it up all good story points.
