Jean-Luc Picard enjoys the fine things in life as an enlightened man of the 24th century. A little flute music. Some tea it tastes like soap. Some fine wine. He allowed a farewell after everything he had been through. But I’m worried about some new meal options Star Trek: Picard season 2.
While we wait for Patrick Stewart to return second round in Star Trek: Picard, showrunner Terry Matalas shared enigmatic footage from the shoot from the shoot on social media. There are no major revelations in sight, but a recent snapshot of the LCARS menu for what Matalas calls “Picard’s replicator” specifically couldn’t get out of my head the last few days. Despite Matalas saying it was Picard’s replicator, this is likely replicator on board The Mermaid, because several items match the food items mentioned on board in the first season. But where this replicator is located is not my concern. That’s it included to to me.
It is an eclectic mix – of course, liketarship’s the replicator can recreate millions of food and beverage items from Federation cultures, so this is clearly not the ultimate sum of it all digitized kitchen. But all the options listed here, probably from a list of recently replicated items, at least talk to someone like Picard’s well-to-do French upbringing. There are multiple fillets of fresh fish, diced tomatoes and a few cubs, the ability to copy only three whole cloves of garlic (probably Jean-Luc Picard agrees with the universal theory because there is never something like too much garlic to eat). Mint ice cream is a nice touch, something sweet and indulgent, but no also compliant, especially for someone restrained like Picard–can leave Sundaes to Deanna.
But there is also french fries. French fries are the main ingredient in Starfleet replicators – we see number one ordering some with his hamburger u Star Trek: Discovery second season, and even before replicators were standard technology on ships, Enterprise‘s galey served dishes with french fries as a side dish. However, if you take a closer look at the entry on Picard’s replicator, you’ll see that a serving of french fries gives you 400 grams fried potatoes. Jean-Luc, my friend, I know you i just got the robot body and you want to test it out, but it’s too much french fries for a man in the nineties! That’s twice as much as you’d get search from this replicator. You would get as many diced tomatoes as possible, which is a much healthier option.
Or is it? We knew from the past on the side Star Trek that Star Fleet replicators, or at least Star Fleet replicators, have altered their nutritional content so that although crew members may order what would normally be considered unhealthy meals, they are still relatively nutritiousonally balanced for physically fit people on military and scientific research ships. Deanna abused the fact that her aforementioned replicated boys were never exactly the same he says on board Enterprise-D, because the replicator changed them for food value. In Picardfirst season, Dr. Jurati tried to induce vomiting to expel Romulan tracker eating two slices of cake the size of her head The Mermaida replicator, hoping that sugar and fat would do the job – but even if they didn’t as as unhealthy as the real thing, two slices of cake would subsequently cause any feeling of nausea. So almost a pound of french fries probably won’t benefit Picard, even if it’s not ‘real’ french fries.
Obviously, all my immersion goes in Star Trek: Picard The second season is greatly jeopardized by this grave mistake Sharp, ViacomCBS, Alex Kurtzman, and many set designers and artists. How can I enjoy Picard and Q if only I knew a huge bunch of replicated french fries waiting for Picard when he’s done? I’m ready to suspend disbelief in many things Star Trek–floating space heads, a theoretical journey by FTL turning you into a horny lizard, yes you can teach Ferengi the concept of the cloak. But this nutritional must for Track The legend is just a step too far and I can’t wait to be furious how Star Trek: Picard the second season grapples with this terrible mistake, because there are almost certainly some there will be nothing more important engage in.
