I don't feed them ;-) I haven't given them a nine volt battery in years.

And storing them in a ziplock bag doesn't hurt either. :twisted:


Have you noticed that you never see the tribbles and the martian fat-cats in the same room at the same time?

Federation has ability to energize matter and reassemble living organism, keeping organism's functional structure intact. Can also make foodstuffs and materials from other matter.


You said Next Gen? I'll need a specific citation for that and I'll bet you it's one of those accidental non canon ones. Replicator technology at the Next Generation level was impressive but it was bulk rearrangement on the molecular level at best. Foodstuff conversation was molecular rearrangement of an existing bio replicator food source. Replication at the detailed molecular level, especially that of complex molecules that are required for a living cell was not a part of the Next Gen Canon.

There were interesting discussions on the possible nature of replicator surgery, but while also non canon, surgery in general isn't all that discussed either. Replication of actual living tissue was out as far as canon was concerned.


HA! I was right, and you were wrong. In season 2, when the crew is transporting Riva the deaf, telepathic mediator to some peace negotiations, the doctor tells Geordi she can regenerate his optic nerve and grow some eyes from the replicator, and that she's done it twice before.

The reason they don't repair bodily tissue and save peoples lives is because the insurance companies decline covering the work requested thus leaving the hapless schmucks, that paid into the system for years, to die.

Private profitable enterprise dictating who lives and who dies. A socialist system would have been far superior. You'd think they would have figured this out by then.

No question that Roddenberry loved him some socialism.

That being said, he was pretty spot-on regarding a lot of the social issues of the time (and even these days).

Two things:

1. I love watching high-level table tennis. That is some awesome stuff.
2. That was indeed a hell of a celebration. I can't help but think that those two must be buddies or something.
