This post is a little bit of a cop-out. I intended to do this post on Hydroponics. After all, it starts with an 'H', it's practically a sci-fi trope equivalent to space food, and I had already drawn a Hydroponics Bay geomorph. Easy peasy, right?
But the truth is, I really don't know much about hydroponics. Or the future of food production. Or the past of food production.
Food for Thought
But luckily, I loves me some Google and have an affinity for all things Traveller. I looked to see what I could find in the published material and online forums and came up with surprisingly little. My research notes slowly turned into a Tech Level table, that frankly, I'm having a hard time completing. I figured Traveller Grognards are a pretty smart group in general, so I humbly throw my incomplete work at your feet. Tear it to shreds, fellas. Look into your crystal balls and let me know what you think about food in the far future.
I've still included the Hydroponics Bay geomorph, but suspect it will need revision after I've heard from others.
