Did Replicator Rations Quadruple ater The Void?
 
They traded tech with a species that gave Janeway Replicators four times more efficient than the Starfleet brand Replicators which they were using.

After 5 years of minimum subsistence, would it be greedy to believe that the crew deserved to not be running on empty if Janeway thought that it might be better to put the extra power into the phaser reserves or the warp core?

Captain Bly much?

Or did the crew just get to go balls deep with the opulence, avarice and extravagance leaving their replicators running creating spare cheese all night?

Either way, Paris would be running a floating craps game in Sandrine's, with rations as the stakes.

I always wondered if holographic booze gets you drunk. If you're hung over can you just leave the holodeck and it goes away? Think of the possibilities here!

Alcohol gets you drunk, there's some debate about what synthohol does.

Deanna taught us that you need a special pass code, or significant rank, or it could have even been her medical qualifications attached to her jacket, to be able to replicate real chocolate with real sugar.

It's not a giant leap to assume that the lower ranks can't replicate alcohol, sugar and almost of other substances deemed to be unsafe or outright lethal to mean humanoid congestion, that in the here and now are seen as recreational.

Yes.

The Captain can replicate crack cocaine if she wants to.

Cocaine laced coffee... this would explain Janeway's addiction.

I feel positive in the sheer fact that she only believes that the timid clutch Coffee has on her life is "addictive" is why it's a certainty Kathryn has never had cocaine.

I always figured synthehol was like Nitrous Oxide, gets you quite high but within a few breaths the oxygen breaks it down and it's all out of your system in moments. Also you need to chug quite a bit to really hit intoxication, you're just buzzy for normal drinking speed. And when the red alert sounds by the time you're out of the door to head towards your station it's out of your system.

I saw an explanation similar to that in a novel once.

It has to do something or why pursue it.

They're straight edge.

They like the taste of fake meat and fake booze.

Wussies.

I bet their kids are inhaling death sticks though, trying to break out of the Federation inertia.

Also, anything you eat, disappearing would create a vacuum, causing a "backwards fart", and probably sucking the seat of your pants in with it.

They'd have to grow their own tobacco, because replicated death sticks will not have any of the good stuff in them, and even if they smoked outside I can still see fire suppression drones floating about everywhere looking for fire related danger, besides, even if you grow your own, half the yummy stuff in a cigarette is added on purpose as preservatives.

I knew my numbers were off, but I'm tired, so tired, I'm tired, tired of playing the game, ain't it a crying shame? I'm so tired, God dammit I'm exhausted!

JANEWAY: Neelix, we have another guest for dinner.
NEELIX: Always room for one more, Captain.
BOSAAL: Who did you raid to get fresh vegetables?
JANEWAY: They're replicated. One of the crews that joined us had technology that tripled our replicator efficiency.
NEELIX: It may not be a gourmet feast, but we can feed five hundred people a day now using half the power it took us a few days ago.
JANEWAY: Why don't we sit down?
They were in an extraordinary situation. And in this situation no one persons rations increased. Policy on the other hand, after they got out, would have been up for debate, unless Kathryn made an executive decision, no one had the balls to question.
