Bularian canapés

A plate of Bularian canapés

Bularian canapés were a kind of canapé served with tea.

When Admiral Alynna Nechayev beamed aboard the USS Enterprise-D in late 2370 to discuss the status of the Cardassian Union, Captain Jean-Luc Picard prepared a plate of Bularian canapés, watercress sandwiches, and a pot of Earl Grey tea to make the admiral feel welcome aboard the Enterprise-D. He had previously contacted her aide Commander Wrightwell and found out that she was quite fond of the canapés. Commander Riker noted the refreshments in the observation lounge and asked the captain if he was up for a promotion. (TNG: "Journey's End")

Picard refrained from offering these to Nechayev again during a second meeting this year, considering that "twice was pushing it a little." Nechayev was only slightly disappointed, remarking that "they're extremely fattening." (TNG: "Preemptive Strike")

They are described as "odd-looking crackers" in the script of the episode.
