The Star Trek universe is vast and rich, full of inventions, ideas and creations pulled from the genius minds of 50 years of writers, directors, producers, artists, set designers and so on. But sometimes, it's the small things you notice while watching an episode of Star Trek that make you really appreciate the work of all these creative people. Small things like the dozens and dozens of fancy drinks imagined and created just for the Star Trek universe.

In my day to day life, I appreciate the quality of a well-mixed cocktail or the unique flavor of a home-brewed beer. I certainly am no connoisseur, but I would at least call myself an appreciative fan of all things that I can drink. So, to mix my love of Star Trek with my love of drinks, I will feature one particular drink in a post every now and then. Hopefully my detailed digressions into this particular minutia of Trek will pay some sort of homage to the imaginative and hard-working creators of this intricate fictitious universe. Ok, enough brown-nosing; let's have a drink! (In my next post :)
