A replicator has been mentioned a couple of times, so it is important to set a standard. We do have a replicator but it isn't a Federation replicator. It is designed for spare part production and not food or fine material replication. It is hardly every used and if you ask for cheese you are likely to get those plastic slices regardless of the type of cheese you request.

So bottom line the replicator rarely works, gives poor quality, drinks a lot of power and most klingons prefer their food live.

Having said that a Federation engineer could easily spend an few hours getting it up to scratch for a special project such as the red silk for valentines day. It may even make good Raktajino for a day or so afterwards. Most of the Crew wouldn't touch it though.

Best way to think about it is like one of those coffe dispensers you get at Uni. What comes out is brown, caffinated and may once have been on the same shelf as the coffee, but you wouldn't use it unless you were desperate and out of other options.
