Groppler Zorn offered Commander William T. Riker a bowl of Earth fruits, including grapes, strawberries, and bananas, when he visited Zorn in his office in Old Bandi City. Riker wanted an apple, but there were none available. The Farpoint Station entity then created a bowl of red apples, as it was instructed to satisfy the desires of the Starfleet crew.
