Treasure

Prompt and DeviantArt link for the 21st.

It’s been long believed that an army marches on its stomach. The idea being that the reliability of supply lines are the key to an army’s lethality. The truth is, even in the USSC of the 23rd century, an army marches on its coffee and tobacco resources.

When the Aldrin found itself looking at the mirrored image of Orion’s belt in the sky, the totality of its coffee and tobacco supply was contained within galley supplies (coffee), deployment pallets (coffee), ship store supplies (coffee and tobacco), and personal private inventories (tobacco).

Needless to say, the discovery that the paladins of the old Knights Templars had brought tobacco seeds as part of their ship based inventories into this new world, served to redefine treasure in a whole new way.
