A few days ago, I began wondering how the Replicators in Star Trek work. So, like any good idiot, I took to Google, and started to learn what other people thought about the same subject. Because, let’s be certain, there is no actual answer, as they don’t exist.
If you don’t know what a Replicator is, here’s one in action.
Basically, you say what you want, and then it appears in the slot. Apparently, it uses transporter technology to re-arrange sub-atomic particles into anything you so desire.
But where does it get all of its base materials?
There’s only one place I can think of …
The tanks of poo on the Enterprise.
