There are meals that are only saved with some meat, but there are even more meals that simply don't need meat because they're so delicious as they are. One of the best burgers I've ever had was made without meat. And no, it wasn't soy or tofu. :P
    I suppose I just haven't been fed a good meatless meal before. I enjoy a wide range of meats, some with flavor (squirrel, game bird, deer, etc), and some with not so much natural flavor (beef, pork).
    I won't knock something until I try it though. I'm not going to go out seeking a meatless meal, but I'll gladly eat one if presented with the chance.

    It's also sad that people think just because the meat they've had is tasteless, all of it is. Yeah, the chicken from Safeway is pretty tasteless, but that's not good chicken.

    I never really got that shit back when I ate meat. I generally would always expect the sauce to carry most of the flavor with very little care as to the quality of the meat (provided it's at least decent). And I'm from the northeast where snobby degos have influenced the standards and expectations of quality.

    I've had a lot of very high quality chicken, pork, and steak, organically grown (like, directly from the local farm) and quite expensive. Unseasoned, it has little flavor. Need spices and/or sauces. There are plenty of other foods besides meat that also need seasoning or sauce, but there are quite a few dishes without spices or sauces I'd rather eat that an unseasoned piece of meat.

    Here's the main problem with vegetarians (and pretty much everyone else). Unless you're Bear Grylls you don't have a diet interesting enough to be worthy of conversation, and like 99.9% of diet-based conversational topics, no matter what your diet is (or isn't), its been talked to death a thousand times.

    If someone says they are vegetarians and your first reaction is to say "I love meat", fucking staple your lips shut cause you're the most boring person in the room.

    If you're a vegetarian and your first reaction is to find any excuse possible to bring it up; well see the sentence above.

    If you're anything in-between, fuck you asshole, no one cares.

    DS9 is my favorite, excluding Enterprise. DS9 probably has the least Roddenberry influence of them all. In fact, I've heard it said that they intentionally crammed it full of themes that Roddenberry never allowed. Such as major conflict between permanent characters, and technology having a bad side. There's war, genocide, betrayal, and officers disregarding protocols in even ways Kirk wouldn't have considered. It's got the finest writing and best characters of all the Trek shows. It's the show that made me a Trek fan to begin with.

    DS9 is also the least popular Star Trek show amongst Trekkies, making me somewhat less nerdy by loving it. Maybe.
    Now back on topic. In the 5 intervening years between this post and my reply, I'll say that DS9 was a favorite of mine after having finished the entire franchise.

    Then when I finished it again I switched back to Voyager. Its pretty much solid from Episode 1 until the episode before the last one.

    Voyager's series finale was that series' "Encounter at Far-Point Station". That is to say, awful and non-sensical. Seriously (Spoi... Fuck you, this is a 5 year late reply to a show that ended 14 years ago, if THIS post spoils the ending then GOOD, I'm glad), seriously though, Voyager gets back to the alpha quadrant inside an exploding Borg cube 'somehow'. Fuck you Hewitt-Wolfe, I know you wrote it, this has ANDROMEDA all over it.uuuuuuuugggggghhhh

    Thank God I steered conversation back on track. Also I can't wait to read Memory of Light. Took upon myself the task of re-reading the entire series last january. Am now on The Gathering Storm. I wish I could tag T-6005 and PiB.

    Even if meat is somehow completely unhealthy, I'd rather have 70-80 years in my life of eating the delicious animals than 100 years of munching on leaves.
    And now you can never, ever criticize smokers.

    I suppose you're right, I rarely if ever eat meats without at least salt and/or pepper. Though, I think I could say the same thing for most meals. I eat lots of vegetarian and vegan dishes, but I always use at least some kind of oil, butter, salt, or pepper.

    Right, I'm on dissing meat at all. I just don't understand the idea that a meal is lame/bland without it, since meat itself is pretty bland without seasoning and such. And yeah, most meals need some sort of seasoning, for sure.

    If you think steak needs salt or seasoning to be good you've never eaten a steak that's been cooked correctly. There is absolutely no debate on that either, sorry.
