Good News is a brand of herbal supplement that the professor had need for in 3013. [7ACV16] After running out of supplement, the professor sent the crew to Omicron Persei 8 — the only place where the supplement's active ingredient grows. The ingredient later cleared up his arthritis and his glaucoma.
The professor: Good news, everyone! I'm in terrible pain.
Hermes: How is that good news?
The professor: It's not. I've run out of Good News-brand herbal supplement. If you don't get me more Good News, everyone, my arthritis will make me seize up like a dried monkey carcass.
Hermes: I will not endanger this crew for some quack remedy.
The professor: Ha! The sacred weed of Omicron is a serious herb.
Hermes: Sacred weed, you say? [He picks up the professor's Good News bottle and smells the supplement.]
Sweet toke of Ocracoke! This stuff's the Omichronic! To the ship!
