Reason #123523508 why SW is better than Star Trek:

Nobody ever eats! (we're promised food in Bespin, but it's a setup! They shoulda been suspicious -- why? Coz nobody ever eats!)

(this was ruined, of course, by the prequels -- yet another way in which George didn't realize why SW was so great)

Actually... Yoda spends a good chunk of ESB stuffing his face...

"How you get so big eating food like this?" He says after nibbling on one of Luke's little nutrient sticks.
Then eats and feeds Luke some lovely Bowl of somehting... which luke eats then pretty much spits up, and tosses away as he talks to Ben.

And well the Wampa wanted to Eat Luke, and was munching on his Taun-Taun when he wakes up. ESB has the most Food in it...

Oh Wait, also ANH... The whole scence with Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru and the Blue milk... people in that eat... Pretty sure Owen doeas as well as Beru and Luke... Maybe you should not eat to stay alive, but people eat... ;)

Oh, yeah, I'd forgotten about the blue milk. Still, that might go with the cantina scene -- people DRINK, but they don't eat. Beru putting celery in the blender to make blue milk, that counts as drink. Yeah. That's it.

My steadfast belief that nobody eats in SW, despite all that, you know, evidence you just cited, is this: when Luke is at the Cantina, his order to the bartender is a muttered "I'll have what he's having" because clearly, Lucas didn't know what to name the food and drink. He just prefered not to bring it up at all.

And, fine, Yoda eats. He's weird.

Well... Look What Happened to those who Did Eat... Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru end up Being Slaughtered for their Efforts... Yoda has had his Growth Stunted and then He too Dies... (Perhaps Lukes Force Granted Powers of Predetermination Told him of this eventuality, thus compelling him to Spit out the "Soup?")...The Wampa loses and Arm for his Culinary Indulgence... And When Han and Party Try to Eat in Cloud City Han ends up a Solo-sicle and Luke Loses a Hand (Ok... So Luke was not Actually There at that point, but He IS the one who has the Force Powers, so He Should'a warned every one back on Hoth not to Take Lunch that day, so he was Indirectly paying for the Food Eating Habits of others)...

All in All The Lessons Being taught to us by Lucas are Clear to Every one "Stay away from Food!" It Kills, Maims and Tortures your Frinds! Geesh... I Shoulda' Listened... Years ago, before I Started the Belly Collection...<Smirk>...
