Off topic but as far as I can see there is no user switching in star
trek. Every command is run "as user" with the user calculated from the
voice pattern. The closet we would get to that is a fingerprint scanner

implement voice regognition on a system wide scale?). That way we could
get a verified id of the person running the command.
