Re: Diet Cards vs. Food Synthesizers

It also stands to reason that the cards would have some visible means of labeling the contents. Perhaps Chapel just pressed the edges in a pattern (or keyed in instructions while the cards were inserted in a reader) to make the cards change color appropriately, whereas Kirk doesn't go for color coding but has text on his datacards that becomes visible (but only to him, even in HD) when the card is pressed or something.

For all we know, Kirk has programmed a complex, customized weekly menu into his food card, and fully knows what to expect from a Tuesday lunch...

Fascinating how the color coding in "And the Children" actually holds up to scrutiny!
