Arch vs. Exit Edit

I believe the arch is used only as a control panel, and that exit is used in order to leave the holodeck. --Wyatts 15:19, 21 Jul 2005 (UTC)

You're right, I just got confused because the exit command also brings up the arch. The arch, however, is for only the purposes you've described. --Shran 17:40, 21 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Star Trek: Generations Edit

In Generations, Picard calls up the exit arch to leave the holodeck when he gets the message that his nephew is dead. The thing that has been bothering me is the arch is summoned in the middle of the boat, even though the exit leading out of the holodeck should be attached to the wall. We see members of the crew behind the arch, where a real, physical wall should be. You see my problem? Is there a reasonable explanation for this? 19:21, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

The same explanation we have always had for the space of a holodeck, and the distance between people inside, being bigger than the holodeck itself. --OuroborosCobra talk 19:30, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
