Mobile Holoemitter

Mobile Holoemitters are devices used to project holograms that are capable of taking the emitter with them. Whereas once special rooms were required to project complex holographs, individual characters and items can be projected and be fully mobile.

The technology was first accessed by the United Federation of Planets.



The Portable Holographic Emitter is a storage device that contains the holographic matrix of any hologram and supporting program installed into it. It allows any hologram to wander freely beyond the Holodeck without dependency on in-ship emitters or risk of matrix decompilation.

Constructed of a poly-deutonic alloy unknown to 24th century science, the mobile emitter is approximately the size of a human palm. The emitter is either affixed to the exterior of the active holoprogram and thereby visible, or it can be covered or enveloped by the program, effectively hiding it from view.


Varies on the designer. The image is the version 1.0 for the Doctor.

Use History

First developed for use by the Doctor on the U.S.S. Voyager to allow him wider mobility outside sickbay.

Important Notes

Lucas Wolenczak utilizes a varied version with an energy chip capable of sustaining it for 10 years before it has to be recharged. He's adapted it much like Han Solo altered the Millenium Falcon. It contains a tiny numerical keypad, minute external sensor nodes, a more spherical exterior, 100 terabytes of memory, and a USB port. Mostly uses binary code, but capable of processing trinary code and uplinking to almost any computer. It is equiped with a personal shield that keeps it from getting bumped or damaged. He is constantly thinking of ways to improve it.
