Each Quik Pak is a complete meal that is flash frozen for freshness. Each portion of the meal is in its own separate section. They are best prepared in the Emrys Quik Paks Processor, and have the heating instructions for the unit encoded in a matrix barcode on the top of the package. They can be prepared in a traditional microwave, but the results are not as good.
A Quik Pak is served on a thermal ceramic tray, which each section thermally isolated from the others. This allows the Quik Pak to heat different portions to varying degrees. The tray has four portions, the largest is the entree, there are two side portions and a desert. The trays are recyclable and Emrys Industries will pay .25 KS for each one returned.
In addition to being heated, each portion can be also be subjected to ultrasonic bursts to stir the portion.
The Quik Paks were developed as a quick and convenient way to feed personnel. Prepackaged they are easy to store, and do not require trained personnel to cook them. The Ge-E1-1a - Tenba-Class Transporter was the first to have a Emrys Quik Paks Processor installed, after that there were included as a option of all Geshrinari Shipyards vessels and facilities.
Quik Paks are produced from locally acquired components. Some of the components are grown by Tamahagane Corporation facilities, and the rest are purchased from the local economy.
