RDM explains the difference between Virtuality and holodecks

In a conference call today, Ron Moore dropped a few more Virtuality tidbits, including what he sees as the difference between the crew’s virtual reality modules and holodecks we’ve come to know and love from Star Trek.

“The Holodeck on Star Trek was a physical space with three-dimensional forms you could feel and touch and interact with,” Moore says. “On the Phaeton, it’s much more akin to putting on a virtual headset where you have an experiential ability to touch and sense and smell things in your mind. On a story level, it’s not like The Matrix because we’re not playing the idea that if you die in the virtual space, you die in the real space.”

More on Moore at Wired and io9.
