This, smoking and tobacco need all be appropriately consolidated and redistributed. As far as we know, tobacco is an Earth plant, we don't know that Lidell was smoking tobacco, per se, just that she was smoking. Big difference. --Alan del Beccio 04:42, 29 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Good point. Martia and Kirk smoked something on Rura Penthe to stay warm, and it definitely wasn't tobacco.--Mike Nobody 04:45, 29 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Actually, did any reference specifically use the term "tobacco"? --Alan del Beccio 07:51, 29 Oct 2005 (UTC)

"Little Green Men", Nog.--Mike Nobody 08:06, 29 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Tobacco has been referenced, from "Little Green Men" (sorry, Mike, edit conflict):
Quark: What is that disgusting smell?
Nog: I think it's called tobacco. It's a deadly drug. When used frequently, it destroys the internal organs.
Later:
Quark: You people should take better care of yourselves. Stop poisoning your bodies with tobacco and atom bombs. Sooner or later, that kind of stuff will kill you.
So, thanks to the PSA that is Little Green Men, we get our only reference to tobacco, which seems to be an Earth-bound highly addictive drug that poisons people and is unfamiliar to 24th century Ferengi (accept one seen studying 21st century history earlier in the episode).--Tim Thomason 08:14, 29 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Although tobacco was not directly referenced, Q did give away cigars in that one episode. Isn't it safe to assume he gave them tobacco ones? Since Q is always surrounding himself with Earth-centric artifacts and references, it's unlikely he'd make their cigars out of anything else.--Mike Nobody 08:28, 29 Oct 2005 (UTC)

DataEdit

This kinda relates to the above discussion- I reworded and cited a reference to Data as Holmes smoking a pipe, but tobacco was not actually mentioned. Should it be removed?--31dot 12:18, December 13, 2010 (UTC)
