And of course the food replicators had this beat on 60's Trek episodes where they skipped all the messy details and converted energy right to food matter of whatever choices desired (as long as the food data was in the computer's "tapes")...or maybe it was the Jetsons win where both fuel for transportation and food were all conveniently reduced to pills.
