Does anyone know the episode of Star Trek: Voyager where Captain Janeway placed a book in the replicator and had it recycled? I am looking for the screencap when the book disappeared off the replicator.
In this episode, "Fair Haven" is introduced as one of Paris' new holodeck creations. Captain Janeway eventually falls in love with one of the created residents, who's interest in poetry leads Captain Janeway to read a series of books on Irish literature. Later in the episode, Captain Janeway can be seen recycling the literature in her quarters.
The recycling is mentioned in the original transcript of the episode:
(Janeway picks up a pile of books, presumably Irish 19th century poetry, and takes them to the replicator.)
JANEWAY: Computer, recycle.
This image shows Captain Janeway, moments before recycling the books:
I found this episode by googling "star trek recycling books", and clicking on the first link.
I believe it was Year of Hell. Recycling is required because Voyager has run afoul of the Krenim, a species that are extremely powerful and can manipulate time. Voyager in unable to contend with the Krenim weapons and resources are in even shorter supply than usual, hence the recycling.
