    ST Earth would be my first choice too. My only fear is whether or not my psyche (which is used to society defining itself as much through misery as happiness) would be capable of adapting. This isn't to say that I'm miserable or would seek out misery, but I imagine that as novelty over what's essentially a perfect utopia wears off, the sudden culture shock of the new zeitgeist would be quite steep.

Virtual reality could provide the solution. You could spend time in all sorts of primitive locales.

Heck, maybe Star Trek Earth is all anybody really needs. Want to live on Middle Earth? Marvel Earth? DC Earth? All of these may be readily available via holosuite technology. And when Galactus is about to devour the place - you just end the program and go back to enjoying the socialist paradise.

I'd probably not spend very much time in holodecks/suites. The last thing I'd want is to be another Reginald Barclay!
