From the editor:

("Burp") Hi guys. Now — for the first time ever — for all you hefty or yearning to be hefty Trekfans: The Star Trek Cookbook - or -"A Taste of Armageddon!" Profusely Illustrated, and filled to overflowing with carefully tested recipes to delight the pate and palate of all Trekdom!

So much for the hard-sell. I've been listening to tapes all night getting this thing finished and my co-editor now makes the positively brilliant statement that an introduction is needed. Ah me. In any case, here 'tis.

There are a few people, however, whom I should like to thank. First of all, and foremost as well, my co-editor D Carol Roberts, who of late has drawn, typed and cooked far Into the night, and provided everything from inspiration and insanity to her mother's kitchen. Thankee Dickon, lndeed! Secondly, Margaret Randolf, who invented the Spock's Ears Cookies (page 11) for us from 'way back in IMPULSE 2. Thirdly, Gino's Pizza of Tempe, without whom we might have starved. And finally: my apologies — to Bjo and Ruth, who very graciously provided me with recipes and which I, with amazing alacrity, lost.

And now to all: pleasant conjuring (of food, of course!) and good digestion!
