SELMA -Credit-card sized
holographic supercomputer used on the science fiction series
TIME TRAX/SYN/1993-95. SELMA (Specified Encapsulated Limitless
Memory Archive) is a full functioning computer disguised as an
AT&T MasterCard. It is owned by 22nd century police officer
Captain Darien Lambert (Dale Midkiff) who traveled from the year
2193 to 1993 to round up fugitives who escaped in a time machine
Lambert accesses SELMA both by voice and visual
modes. In visible mode, SELMA (Elizabeth Alexander) is a
hologram that Lambert can see through, walk around and talk to.
SELMA speaks with a British accent; and looks like Mary Poppins
(resembling a picture of Darien's mother he drew as a boy). She
thinks logically like Mr. Spock but is as fussy as C-3PO. And
although SELMA is prone to make mistakes in judgment; she is
reluctant to admit she could actually make them.
