This is my coolest and rarest ration in my collection.
Steve, what the heck! Unexpected! I'm a big TNG fan! Favorite television show hands down. I wonder where those rations were available?

Just by looking at the pic... This was from the TNG era and being from 1992 would put it on season 5-6 (Season 5 is THE holy grail for TNG Trek - See episodes "Darmok" and the epitome of Trek imo "The Inner Light"). I love how the ration is designed to look like the TNG LCARS (Library Computer Access Retrieval System) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LCARS interface of the Enterprise D terminals. Fun little fact: Each of those LCARs terminal panels you see in an episode were created one by one by the designer for each episode depending on the need... I always found that amazing that he made each on like plexiglass with cutouts. You can also see Philips screws holding them in place on some of the shots.

What a cool thing to know even existed! I want to know! Why these rations existed and where they were sold. For the why, I'd assume in the same reason why "Zombie", "Fallout" or other "Novelty" rations are available today.

Man that's crazy interesting.


For my "coolest" ration. I'm gonna go with my with WW2 Canadian "Food Container". Love that thing. I wish I would of bought 2 when they were available there for a hot minute. Little pic of my oldies. I think "old" stuff is the coolest. If/when I can get some ww2 K rations and/or C rations those will be my holy grail.

Dude I gotta watch that show now - just located my firestick remote after it being MIA for like a year. So all I've been doing is re-watching Macguyver seasons 1-5, SG-1 seasons 1-8, The Langoliers, or Battlefield:Earth and a few others. Langoliers Nd Battlefirld Earth are legendary level for horrible. I usually fall asleep by the 12 minute mark for Battlefield.. what was Travolta thinking? So so incredibly grateful that movie was made.. I don't need sleeping meds because of it. Anyway, looks like I'll be venturing into" The Next Generation

I do wonder what it's story is. Must be a short run of sorts sold perhaps in theme park gift shops or somewhere similar for the era. Like for instance, at Epcot ya got that Mission to Mars ride, I remember Star Wars memorabilia bring sold & not to mention, freeze dried ice cream, at that gifts hop one will pass through upon the exit of that ride.


Norge, I seen gun cleaning patches in only one other ration acc packet - Meal Quick Serve
Very cool stuff when these threads start - it is always inspiring to see what you guys manage to find over the years.

Just give me a Swiss Army knife and a roll of Duct Tape, and I can save the world... loved MacGyver... anybody remember AirWolf? ... or even worse Thunder in paradise... starring The Hulk :D
