Re: Sleep-time holodeck experiences

Entered a store. May have sold furniture. Charged you for the amount of time spent in the store. Kept friendly cats there. Evidently wanted the cats to lie on you (and maybe fall asleep). Banked on detaining you as long as possible. Built an underground puzzle maze too, just in case.
