Cloned potato

Cloned potatoes

A potato (Solanum tuberosum) was an edible root vegetable cultivated for its starchy tubers.

In 2367, while re-enacting a scene from A Christmas Carol on the holodeck of the USS Enterprise-D, Lieutenant commander Data, as Ebenezer Scrooge, told Jacob Marley 's ghost that he didn't believe in him, for "You may be an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of an underdone potato." (TNG: "Devil's Due")

In a Dominion simulation, Benjamin Sisko and Jake Sisko were eating potatoes, although Ben was too preoccupied with Admiral Alynna Nechayev and Borath's negotiations to hear Jake asking for him to pass him them. (DS9: "The Search, Part II")

Azan and Rebi wanted to clone Naomi Wildman for the Annual Voyager Science Fair. However, the organizer of the event, Seven of Nine, suggested that they try to clone something smaller, so they chose potatoes. (VOY: "Child's Play")

The cloned potatoes that Azan and Rebi created were auctioned off in the It's A Wrap! sale and auction. The potatoes weren't real, but made out of painted resin.

Methods of potato preparationEdit


In the non-canon book Cohesion, Seven of Nine noted to herself that less than one tenth of one percent of species known to the Borg reproduce by method of budding, as do potatoes.
