The Big Goodbye was fun, but it illustrates a basic repeating theme of many episodes of the newer series:
The Holodecks are nothing but trouble! Stay the heck off them! You'll be trapped, or addicted, or a character will become sentient and take over the ship, or an alien will take them over, or something! Shut the damn things down!
Scott Adams (Dilbert) has called holodecks the "last invention", because once they are created, humankind will go in and never come out. Nobody will have any reason to invent anything else ever again.
Is a Holodeck even worse than a pile of Tribbles then?
