The holodeck, like any literary experience, is potentially valuable in exactly this way. It provides a safe space in which to confront disturbing feelings we would otherwise suppress; it allows us to recognise our most threatening fantasies without being paralysed by them. [...] such an exploration brings the benefit of self-knowledge. It is not paralysing. It sends her back to the real works all the stronger.
