When you're stranded on the complete opposite side of the galaxy from home, one of the first things you have to worry about is how you're going to get food when your supplies eventually run out. Luckily for the crew of Star Trek: Voyager, they were able to find someone who knew their way around the Delta Quadrant and all of its various foods, The Talaxian Neelix.

Here are some of the most scrumptious looking meals Neelix made throughout his time on Voyager. Sit back and enjoy.

Jiballian Fudge Cake

Who doesn't love a little bit of cake? This scrumptious looking confection is from the episode "Twisted," in which the crew try to celebrate Kes' second birthday, but are halted when an inversion field messes with the ship. Tuvok also makes one of these later in the series after he loses his memory.


Plomeek Soup a la Neelix

This one is a classic that should be recognized by any Star Trek fan. Plomeek soup is a traditional Vulcan dish usually eaten at breakfast, and it's known to be pretty bland. In the episode "Faces," Neelix whips up his own version and adds in some extra spices, much to the Vulcan's chagrin. 


Taga Cakes

These cute little cakes are a Talaxian specialty, and boy do they look sweet. Neelix makes these special little cakes when he is reunited with his niece Dexa in the episode "Homestead." Apparently, these were made from a recipe he got from his grandmother. We're not 100% sure, but they look like they taste like chocolate. 


Rokeg Blood Pie

Ok, hear us out on this one. While it may not have the most appetizing name, this dish is a famous part of the Kilngon tradition known as the "Day of Honor." During the tradition, they look back on their performance during the previous year and see how they measure up. Neelix made this pie for an upset B'Elana during the episode of the same name as a gesture of goodwill. Vegetarians may want to stay clear though.


Niccel Strips

These things look like they have some spice to them, whatever they are. Part of a whole slew of fun sounding meals Neelix puts out in the episode "Persistence of Vision," these strips either look like they're some sort of pasta equivalent or seafood like calamari. Either way, they sure do look good.
