Since they are on Novus now and found a completly empty city, I will get really angry if they dont use this chance to stock up on everything possible. They should have most materials stored somewhere, just waiting for someone to find and use them.

There's probably a few ZPM's laying around, lolz.

That goes for most Food supplies, but they can get Metals, Limestone(very important to them at the moment) and everything else without expiration dates. They can get Food everywhere, but already harvested and refined Materials could help them out alot in the longrun.

I would bet there is going to be some reason they need to leave in a hurry.

New forms of crop seeds stored in grainhouses for further use of the hydroponics on Destiny, or just a turn a spare large room or 2 into a kind of wheat field(s) for bread.

Weapons, tech materials, computers (if they have them), personal jetpacks, information on planets they setup colonies on hoping for one of them to have flourished as an advanced society - hell, even the local porn could help here and there.

Yeah I seriously hope that just one of many shuttles trips. Through it probably not.

given that the entire planet is in a constant winter, there might actually be good food around

That is true.. it would have kept longer.

I certainly wouldn't be the first person to try any food from there.

Longer, but 30 Years? Even frozen food has expiration dates. I kind of doubt that any food can survive that much time without being unconsumable.

the crew got tons of food from the planet so i doubt their going on the planet to search for food.

True, but there are other ways of preserving food and other useful things other than regular freezing and canning. Items may have been freeze-dried which could preserve its usefulness for a longer period of time. I'd still be a bit leery of anything they found, but I suspect it would still be good.

PS - and shoes. I'd get some new shoes... and perhaps some socks. Young keeps stealing other people's socks.

Young does not steal, it is for the greater good. ;P

Still, 30 Years? No Food conservation we know of can hold that long.

I'm a curious cat like Eli. I'd be looking for all the journals and photo albums and stuff. :) I'd be looking for any reference to myself too! Maybe there's a statue of me somewhere!

I bought some powdered water, but I don't know what to add to it.

That would be funny to see.

Or even a school/street/building or two named after them.

Well I dont know what foodstores would be left....on the one hand the Novans would have known what was coming, and had plenty of time to save up a great deal of emergency resources, the kind that dont ever expire :) On the other hand, volcanic winter doesnt just instantly happen like in The Day After Tomorrow...they probably ate just about everything they had before they died off.
