Re: A longpig sandwich

You would know it wouldn't. And you'd be in the same territory Australia is now with its live sheep exports for halal meat.

I'm sure there would be colonies of luddites who wanted to embrace a lifestyle which included real meat, whether for religious reasons or not.

If it comes out of a hole in the wall, then your passover meal didn't come from a unblemished, one year old male lamb.

I'm sure that if wafer and wine can become the body and blood of Jesus Christ then printed meat can be invested with the essence of one-year-old-male-lambdom.

And a rabbi would somehow have to approve proper replication of Kosher meals.

Apparentally it has. When Chief O'Brien said his mother used actual, non-replicated meat in her meals, Keiko was surprised she would do such a thing.

Personally, I'd have the replicator make me some of the original Coca-Cola, the kind that actually had cocaine in it, but that's just me.

Re: A longpig sandwich

So the meat industry is over and probably the milk industry too.. animals are now kept purely for enjoyment and their breeding curtailed. I suppose some people would still eat eggs from their own yard chickens but I bet there are whole generations of people who consider real flesh and actual milk from animals and eggs that came out of a real chicken to be gross.

That reminds me of how rarely any kind of cola was mentioned in Trek. Just see how little there is on Memory Alpha here. Hell, soda pop in general gets very little love in Trek.

Coke is like rock music, they've all evolved beyond it. It's all jazz and merlot baby.

Root beer still exists in the 24th century, why the hell can't Coke? Or even Pepsi, for those who prefer the Blue over the Red.

Well Picard was also fond of real caviar so humans do still eat animal products.

This does beg the question whether or not humans ever really have to eat ANYTHING that was ever alive? Why limit it to animals when replicators are just as capable of replicating plants. There could be an entire social movement on Earth advocating complete human removal from the food chain.

I can see them running outside and staring wildly at the ground, looking for real vegetables.

There must still be a demand for actual food, since replicated food is often said to be inferior to the genuine article. Though I suppose there might be a minority who prefer to eat only replicated food.

I always assumed soft drinks weren't shown on Star Trek because of product placement reasons, much like having certain kinds of rock music would date the show. But considering how Quark once mentioned root beer, it was always there, lurking unseen in the background.
