And now for something completely different!
We were asked to have a suite at CoreCon, the local Sci-fi convention, to give out free vegan food to the attendees. So, we came up with the idea of having a Star Trek themed suite, and we’re calling it “Trek Cafe and Lounge,” a room filled with food from the future; replicated food! Most of the food in the Star Trek universe is replicated, and most everyone is vegetarian or vegan because of that, in case you didn’t know. (Except Klingons, of course!)
We’re going to need Sci-fi veg geeks to help! Benefits include: hanging out with us, watching lots of Star Trek shows/movies, and some free vegan food, of course!
I’m applying for funding through VegFund.org to help cover most of the costs of the room and food, but we’ll need extra funding for props, costumes and such. Here is where you can help:
From “Star Trek: The Next Generation” Lonely Among Us (1987):
Commander William T. Riker: We no longer enslave animals for food purposes.
Badar N’D'D: But we have seen Humans eat meat.
Commander William T. Riker: You’ve seen something as fresh and tasty as meat, but inorganically materialized, out of patterns used by our transporters.
Badar N’D'D: This is sickening. It’s barbaric!
