Which two Trek episodes reference Thanksgiving?

See answer below

Courtesy of Memory Alpha:

"Thanksgiving was originally an holiday celebrated in the United States on Earth that enabled people to celebrate being thankful for what they had. It was still celebrated in the 2370s.

In 2266, the crew of the USS Enterprise were prepared to celebrate Thanksgiving. Captain Kirk was irritated because there was not any turkey on board the ship; the crew was going to have eat meatloaf instead. Kirk was later informed that, while in the ovens, the meatloaf mysteriously transformed into turkey. This transformation was caused by Charles Evans, a boy with incredible powers. (TOS: "Charlie X")

In 2372, Benjamin Sisko invited the entire senior staff of Deep Space 9 to Thanksgiving dinner. The captain had been growing vegetables for months to serve at the dinner. A year later, Michael Eddington told Sisko that he thought his former commanding officer had added too much tarragon to the stuffing. (DS9: "Blaze of Glory")"

If memory serves, the meatloaf not only turned into turkey, it turned into LIVE turkeys, which caused Charlie to giggle.

Ironic, since the vast majority of Sisko's senior staff (including Eddington) were not from America either. haha.
Peldor Joi might be an appropriately similar Trekkie sentiment.

Cute Blog, Joe. ^_^

Nice Thanksgiving stuff! I remembered the Charlie X reference, but not the DS9. Tarragon in stuffing? I'll try that. I LOVE the turkeys.

July 25: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Think what you may about Friends' regular Matt LeBlanc, but he was about the only thing that somehow felt right in the 1998 attempted reboot of Lost in Space (1998).  The film performed poorly (mostly when you figure in its unwarranted $80M budget), and, alas, that was the last we saw of it.  Leblanc was born on this…See More
