# 28 Economy or lack thereof
01-31-2010, 11:48 PM
I'd just like to remind everyone that the ST universe does not have an 'economy' as such. replicators make everything by assembling the spare matter in the immediate environment and rearranging the molecules, at the sub-atomic scale, into the required components...as there is also a lot of garbage still generated by a society; refuse also powers the replicator's hunger for 'raw' materiel...my point is this...the in-game economy will sort itself out just like Wall St does...remember that.
