So if some (a lot) of holograms are self-aware like Vic Fontaine on DS9, isn’t it immoral to keep using them as playthings? They keep “accidentally” becoming conscious like Moriarty on TNG. So why aren’t they considered new life forms like Data? I know the Doctor on Voyager is considered more of a sentient being than other holograms but where is the line? Seems like holosuites are ethically dubious at best. I still want one though.
Remember the time a character on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine sang the Frank Sinatra line “and that laugh that wrinkles your nose” to Kira Nerys? Because she was Bajoran (get it???)? 'cause I do. Every. Single. Time I hear this song.
