Thank you!

Now my embarrassing question is:

What do they use for toilet paper in the future?

Like how the cell-phone came about via the TOS communicator, someone in our time-line could invent a better way to wipe out that old problem.

I do know Bill Gates is trying to take toilet technology which is over a few thousand years old and bring it into the 21st century. Vid here on it.

They have sonic showers, so I'd imagine sonic bidets.

Yeah, was thinking prolly that. Poo transporters, too? Or do feces get used by the ship for replicator purposes? Waste not, want not!

KDF gets to wipe with tribbles, I bet.

Trip did tell the Irish school children that poop gets recycled like everything else on the ship...

Porthos is not amused.

Three seashells. Don't tell me you don't know how to use them?

This character is why I don't play my Romulan any more. Tovan Khev is NOT my BFF! Get him off my bridge!

Thanks for the replies. Who says ST fans don't have their **** together.

You know every one who has ever watched ST wondered where the bathroom was. No body even admitted to having certain bodily processes until First Contact. And even then it was just because Zefram Cochrane brought it up.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

Missed watching this series due to being in the service at the time and on the go. Am now catching up on things after all these years. Will have to keep an eye out now. Thanks!

I guess they were always threatening the engineers on DS9 with waste extraction duty.

Speaking of waste "extraction"... OUCH!!

Porthos is not amused.
