Spilled milk

A scared Rodent drops a bottle of Widin milk in 1930

Milk is a creamy white emulsion produced from the mammary glands of several mammalian species, including the Earth cow and the Klingon targ. (TNG: "In Theory") Containing rather significant amounts of nutrients such as proteins, saturated fats, calcium, and most notably, Vitamin D, it is often consumed on Earth as a beverage. Milk can also be processed into dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, and ice cream, as well as incorporated into various kinds of dishes.

Widin Dairy Farm delivered milk via a horse-drawn cart to the inhabitants of New York City in 1930. (TOS: "The City on the Edge of Forever")

Two percent milk was one of several beverages offered in the drink dispensers in the mess halls of Template:ShipClass starships. (ENT: "Terra Prime")

Lieutenant Kevin Riley drank milk while on duty in the engineering section of the USS Enterprise before it was poisoned by Lenore Karidian in 2266. (TOS: "The Conscience of the King")


A glass of hot milk with nutmeg

When milk is heated, the amino acid in the lactose it contains is activated, acting as a natural sedative, helping one sleep. Warm milk was Lt. Reginald Barclay's drink of choice on the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Hollow Pursuits") Captain Picard's aunt Adele had a recipe for steamed hot milk toddy with nutmeg, which Picard shared with Doctor Crusher. (TNG: "Cause and Effect")

On two separate occasions, Dr. Crusher prescribed a glass of warm milk toddy to Commander William T. Riker and Jean-Luc Picard (with a dash of nutmeg) to help them sleep. (TNG: "Schisms", "All Good Things...")

Quark prepared warm Enyak's milk when Kira Nerys appeared "rumpled." (DS9: "Ties of Blood and Water") Similarly, Q suggested warm Kylerian goat milk to Captain Kathryn Janeway when she was having trouble sleeping. (VOY: "Death Wish")

Geordi La Forge compared the spaceborne species dubbed Junior feeding on the energy of the USS Enterprise-D to an infant being fed with milk. In order to dispose of the creature which was rapidly draining the ship's power, he realized that he had to "sour the milk". (TNG: "Galaxy's Child")

On some replicators, a milk button was available for easy manual input.

This was shown in the It's A Wrap! sale and auction, which featured a close-up of a replicator's manual control interface, which included a button for "milk".

Both Commander Chakotay and Neelix thought that warm milk was repulsive. (VOY: "Unforgettable")
