This page contains details on THE FOOD we did NOT serve
PLEASE REFRESH to pick up the latest version.



Much of the food and drink seen on-screen was made using unappetizing or inedible ingredients because it was not meant to be palatable, or even eaten, it was meant to look like whatever the script called for.

Since we consume what we serve, and we want to enjoy it, we spent a lot of time looking for food that would look like what was seen on-screen but actually tasted good!

What is shown on this page are those things we did not serve. Some were not served because they were not appropriate, others because they were not edible. They are presented here because I think I know what the prop department used, or I have a suggestion for what could be used, and that might be helpful to someone planning their own party. I did not work up recipes for these.

The food we did serve is on a separate page.

Many of the pictures below are screen caps from either, Memory-Alpha or Trek Core.
