#StarTrekDrunkTexts via Hashtag, You’re It!: @McMannofthePeop The Top Picks


“Star Trek”, having premiered in 1966, has been around for over half a century. With 6 TV shows, 13 movies, an animated series, and a barrage of books and graphic novels it is very easy to say that this show is a cultural phenomenon! Now I wouldn’t call myself a Trekkie, those fans are just a little too hardcore for me. But I did very much enjoy “Star Trek: The Next Generation”. The adventures of Captain Picard and the new crew of the Starship Enterprise. It left behind the camp of the original series and brought to it a real hope for what the human race can accomplish with science, patience, inclusion, logic, and the ability to replicate food and drink. Speaking of drinks, a lot of the scene on “TNG” took place in the ship’s bar called 10 Forward. It was presided over by an El-Aurian named Guinan who served something called synthehol. Synthehol is served on board all Star Fleet vessels and Starbases as it has the same taste of alcohol but none of the adverse side effects. That way none of the Star Fleet crew can get drunk and do something stupid with foreign alien ambassadors. Buuuuuuut, like any good bartender Guinan DID have a small amount of real alcohol stashed away. So this got me thinking……what if Star Trek characters got drunk just like the rest of us. Lord knows using the transporter for drunken trips to Taco Bell WOULD make things easier but what about everything else? That’s why this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” was #StarTrekDrunkTexts. So live long and prosper and don’t forget to check out the top list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT for the next exciting episode of “Hashtag, You’re It”
