Even though I am hard on Deanna for steering the ship in the wrong direction (the planet is supposed to be behind you when firing a torpedo, not in front of you (firing out of the aft tube) when the order is "Get us out of orbit!"), still not as bad as Janeway's, "We're involved in this conflict, that means even though we have a surefire way of getting home and not violating the Prime Directive, we're going to blow this station up from a distance and take 70 years to get home!" Instead of maybe, beaming those two Tri-Cobalt devices on board the Caretaker Array and timing them to explode a minute or two after the array sends Voyager back to the Alpha Quadrant!

Star Trek has always WAY under used transporters and explosives.

For example:  The Kazon(sp) ships HAD NO SHIELDS.   Janeway could have ended EVERY single fight with just dropping shields for 1/100th of a second to beam a small explosive charge on the opposing Kazon ship's bridge / reactor / weapons / watever.

Strangely enough, during one fight with a "Borg Probe" ship (basically a Hot Pocket lookalike, somewhat smaller than Voyager) that had to remodulate it's shields when Voyager was kicking it's arse. When that happened, Harry Kim comes up with the brilliant idea of... BEAMING A FARKING PHOTON TORPEDO on board and timing it to explode, which destroyed the ship! (it was supposed to disable it, but apparently explosive yield isn't something you think about in this "think fast" decisions!) I think the writers were just looking for stupid ways to increase the tension, because the Kazon were mostly a push over enemy until they got to Borg space.

YEp, but a weak one.  An enemy with no shields OR transporters?   That's pathetic and anyone with the slightest bit of imagination could just WRECK that.

They were so stupid that the Borg refuse to assimilate them. Yes really. One person pointed out that their primary energy supply would generate water as a side effect but the still fight over water.

We're here to celebrate something that plays an important role in all of our lives-food.  Food isn't traditionally thought of as a diplomatic tool, but sharing a meal can help people transcend boundaries and build bridges in a way that nothing else can.  Some of the most meaningful conversations I've had with my counterparts around the world have taken place over lunch and dinner.
That's why I'm delighted that the Office of Protocol has joined forces with bureaus across the State Department and the James Beard Foundation to create this initiative.  By exploring the idea of "culinary engagement," they've identified new opportunities to further intercultural dialogue and strengthen bilateral relationships, right at the dinner table.
This project will give us the chance to showcase the very best of what the American culinary community has to offer by assembling the "American Chef Corps," a network of chefs dedicated to sharing our diverse culinary tradition by advising the State Department and participating in cooking demonstrations here in America and abroad.
So, once again, thank you all so much for coming.  I only wish I could be there tonight to enjoy this moment-and this food-with you.
