Synthetic Scotch Synthetic Commanders


Hi Trekkers, Spacerguy here. Its always nice to kick back with a cocktail and enjoy a drink with your android Starfleet buddy when duties permit. Scotty in TNG Relics just had a sip of synthehol and nearly choked! Even 75 years locked in a continuous transporter cycle didn't develop the taste buds for fake booze. So here Data finds the solution and its by no means artificial. Guinan, a woman of many secrets with her bar counter in Ten Forward is just the ticket. 

Whats the green cocktail called? 

1. SAURIAN BRANDY - Potent liqueur

2. ALDEBARIAN WHISKEY - Alcoholic beverage of considerable potency

3. KLINGON BLOOD WINE -  Packs quite the punch

Live Long and prosper, trekkers.


  1. Oh, we just recently watched this one!

    I think it's #2.

    There's a new Star Trek cocktail book being published, just this week. I think you can expect to see its recipes featured in future Squid posts...

  2. I drink something VERY similar looking (but I'm sure it's not as tasty) every morning, "V8 Healthy Greens" juice! Anyway, I think I remember Captain Picard saying it was No.2 when he swigged back a shot on the holographic bridge of the classic Enterprise with Mr.Scott--that was in my top 3 favorite TNG episodes, by the way :)

  3. I'm pretty sure it was Aldebarian whiskey. I got to experience that scene a few weeks ago. A friend wanted me to try something new he'd found at the liquor store. It turned out to be a very bright green drink.

  4. If it tastes anything like the Scotch we know, they are more than welcome to it.

  5. We're making our way through the series again, but we haven't gotten to that one.

  6. Oh, ten forward must have been quite a place. Diana and her crazy chocolate fixes were so good. The whiskey can stay in its bottle!

  7. If you're going to drink, might as well drink the real stuff.

  8. Have no idea on the drink, but that is one of my all-time favorite Star Trek episodes. HAving the Dyson Sphere alone would have done that but having Scotty on the episode was awesome.

    My only criticism was not having a follow up episode to explain the sphere and who built it.


Ignore the robot question and just punch it!
