Whom Gods Destroy
I had a dream last night I shoplifted an old DVD of "Star Trek," so I got up this morning, signed into my telephone job, and watched the second episode (the second pilot, after "The Cage"), which by now featured familiar faces acting in familiar ways, including Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner), a now emotionless Mr. Spock (the late, great Leonard Nimoy), Sulu (George Takei), Scotty (James Doohan), etc. However, still no Bones (the late, great DeForest Kelley, who died back in 1999). Instead, we have the brief (very brief) tenure of Paul Fix as "Dr. Piper."
A new kind of 3D-printed carrot, in the words of its Qatar-based inventors
Qatari students aim to make ‘food accessible to people all over the world’ with their newly invented 3D printer.

Two visionary students, Mohammad Annan, aged 20, and Lujain Al Mansoori, aged 21, both pursuing information systems at Doha's Carnegie Mellon University, have achieved an extraordinary feat - the creation of a 3D printer capable of mass-producing vegetables, offering a potential remedy to the global food crisis.
Outer Limits Season 2, Episode1: "Soldier"
Harlan Ellison sadly passed away at the age of 84, back in 2018. He was undeniably one of the most brilliant SF writers (hell, one of the most brilliant writers period), of his generation. He penned two episodes of the classic cult Sixties television sci-fi anthology show "The Outer Limits." One was "Demon With a Glass Hand," starring Robert "Greatest American Hero" Culp. I saw that one decades ago. The other, "Soldier," (Based loosely on Harlan's own short story "Soldier of Tomorrow") quite clearly inspired the mega-blockbuster action movie series The Terminator, starring Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Arnold playing the titular cyborg assassin from Earth's apocalyptic, AI-generated nuclear holocaust of a future.

To Serve Man (Fricasseed, Parboiled, Poached, Fried, or Raw)
Not really. But, just imagine it: Somewhere out there in space, because anything that can exist DOES in an ever-shifting pattern of alternate universes and Seven Heavens or Dimensions all interlocking, a vast human SLAUGHTERHOUSE, a "domesticated Dachau" (to borrow a phrase from a story by Clive Barker) wherein the world exists (for tiny humans) as a "vast butcher shop" where "slain men hang in rows" (to borrow a phrase from Ragnar Redbeard). On THAT planet, in that world, men have all the utility to the Masters as a gaggling flock of CHICKENS and are treated with the same thoughtless contempt. Vegans take note.
