    They'd fly away, wouldn't they? They must know that sooner or later they are going to be eaten, right? ;)

    Semi seriously now; if you could have any sci-fi gadget in really, what would it be?
    my choice - a lightsaber! :fight:

    Even without Jedi powers it is possibly the coolest gadget around !(in my opinion, anyway ;))

    I'd love to have a transporter from Star Trek! Just think about how much time you could save getting from one place to another..! :)

    Interesting question, my good sir. Definitely, I would go for a AT-AT walker (if it can be called 'gadget') - countless advantages. My intuition tells me I wouldn't be stopped by police guys in traffic. Bad reputation neighborhoods wont' be a problem any longer (in fact, I guess it'll be quite a fun driving there). Women would be crazy to get a ride near me, in my AT-AT driving post (or maybe they will tell I'm a bedlam case, not sure about this). And some sentimental part, of course - I remember seeing "Empire Strikes Back" somewhere in 1986 or 87, I have felt some chill thrills seeing these metal monsters coming towards me, on cinema's screen... I would like to share this kind of feelings with my fellows townsmen. :D

    definitely a TARDIS if that qualifies. If not, I'll pick warp capabilities; just think of all the places THAT could take us

    The was the official end to every episode they couldn't figure out an end to, "Run away!!!...............................(I would do the same thing, instead of "Fight or Flight", the have "Flight or Transport yourself the "F" out of here. Makes sense, unless your off and end up in materializing halfway into a rock because of a bad resistor or capacitive device, Lord knows what kind of parts would make up something like that but it would be made up of parts. If you did end up in a rock, at least you cold say you have a solid foundation. I wonder if you could wigle your toes, or you become mixed up with the rock. No two objects can occupy the same time and space, so something is going to give. I think the bottom half, it that was what was stuck, would start oozing out of the rock. You would think that would have a back up for that, the have your pattern in the buffer, just beam you back, then back again, but about feet over, to the side, whatever it takes. :)
