Oh but it seems the replicator is restricted too isnīt it? Because she saw something similiar on the replicator, so that might mean everyone can have some things in their quarters they can replicate, but only a certain amount. For bigger meals there is the mess-hall. Could imagine also in the mess hall would be some sort of code so that it gets controlled how much energy everyone uses and only a certain amount of energy everyone can use up per day is permitted.
How did you solve it with your replicators NG?
