My first 1/2 of post gone... fudge! Tossing out fun gizmos & tech for SFing up.

Babylon 5 "Death of the Personality" & The Alien Capitol Punishment Machine from The Quality of Mercy episode... both great ideas with consequences. It seems the DOP is a combo of drugs, programing (never specified how), monitored by telepath but no telepath involved in making new personality, and monitored and punishment administrated by medical staff... the Alien Machine in seconds can suck the life from one person to cure another the one being sucked will feel intense agony, the machine can be used in a less destructive manner to heal slowly over time by sharing life force the person sharing is visibly exhausted after wards.

Lost In Space The Challenge: Volt Blades: Look like fencing blades but are electrified with 50,000 volts. The Strength/Grip Pole... a long clear pole that lights up when competitors grab the end, the pole is held over the head then gripped as hard as possible, then it somehow transfers weight against each grip that can be followed by the lights to the competitor, he who collapse first loses.
