Tatya Bilash and Yoshi Nakamura offered rice to the Vulcan explorer Sorahl as part of his first meal on Earth. Sorahl surprised them by giving its Latin taxonomic name, oryza sativa, and noted there was nothing like it on Vulcan, likely due to the dry conditions across most of that planet. (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky) Three hundred years later, t'mirak rice would become a popular Vulcan dish. (KE novel: A Burning House)
