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.

TREKKER SAMANTHA CRISTOFORETTI - Earths first Italian female astronaut

 Hi Trekkers, I'm happy to announce Earths first Italian female astronaut and engineer Samantha Cristoforetti - boldly exploring outerspace wearing a Star Trek Voyager uniform only take a close look. Shes reached deep into the hearts and minds of trek fans right across the space time continuum. How cool is that? and shes a trekkie!

 it must be time for a brew!


 A trained trusted fighter pilot sipping her morning coffee aboard the International Space Station orbiting Earth. Now what does that remind you of? USS Voyagers NCC 74656 Neelix will tell anyone brewing espresso requires precise scientific engineering when in space. Remember the bride of Chaotica?  "I leave it in your capable hands."

                                           Hailing frequencies open about something,
Live long and prosper, Leonard Nimoy.

So what does it take to become an  astronaut in outspace boldly going where no earthie has ever gone before? 

Lets not fool ourselves trekkers,  put away the toy phasers  😁😑 Its time for work! Heres what Samantha Cristoforetti achieved vs NASA and STARFLEET's recruitment fundamentals.


1. You need Brains, nerves of steel and sharp wits 

2. Secondary school education in 1996

3. Exchange student for one year in USA in 2001 

4. Mechanical Engineering Masters degree graduated in Germany with qualifications in Aerospace, Propulsion and lightweight structures.  -

5. Four months at Ecole Nationale Superieure and at l'Aéronautique and at l'Espace work on aerodynamics

6. Wrote Masters thesis in solid rocket propellants learnt at the University of Chemical Technologies in Moscow, Russia. - Its interesting despite all the competition in the world  😁 things are only impossible until they are not but one fact is clear.

Scientists, Doctors and Astronauts unite sharing ideas, technology and resources across all nations for the prosperity of our happy ball of humanoids on our world, in our universe just like in Star Trek. The significant message Samantha Cristoforetti is making by wearing her Star Trek uniform couldn't be more evident. Peace on Earth. Save Earth for future generations being our primary mission.

Samantha Cristoforetti - Change Climate Change


7. Bachelors degree in Aeronautical Sciences, Naples Italy 2005.

8. Samantha joined Italian Airforce academy in 2001 and graduated in 2005

9. Served as class leader and received Honour Sword for best academic achievement. 

10. 2005 to 2006 Air Force base in Texas received Euro/Nato joint jet Pilot Training. She became a fighter pilot assigned to the 132nd Squadron, 51st Bomber Wing based in Italy.

11. Fighter fundamentals training completed in 2007.

12. Flew MB 339 and served the Plan and Operation Section for the 51st Bomber Wing  in Italy.

Captain Samantha Cristoforetti


13. In 2008 Samantha joined the 101st Squadron , 32 Bomber Wing based in Italy to complete training for AM-X ground attack fighter which makes her a Captain in the Italian  Air Force and a trekkie one😁

14. 500 hours logged having flown six types of military aircraft SF-260, T-37, T-38, MB-339A, MB-3339CD and AM-X. Samantha Cristoforetti was ready, trained and an ultimate trekkie badass. Check her out. Shes got the missiles and the ultimate ball breakers so no messing with her! 

The kicker is after all the nukes knives and sticks enough to defeat any delta-force in the federation 😁she resigned on 31st December 2019 but you know what this means readers don't you?

15. Today NASA selection process is tough. You've got to be highly trained and alert with degrees, candidates must also have skills in leadership, teamwork and communications. You know The motto of Starfleet Academy is "ex astris, scientia which means "from the stars, knowledge."


Conducting a Lunar South Pole Test


 To qualify, entrants must first meet the basic requirements to satisfy Starfleet by submitting to a test. So NASA (who consulted Gene Roddenberry because his starship designs were so precise) has the same goals and selection protocols only in a different timeline. 


Samantha Cristoforetti was selected as an ESA astronaut in September 2009. She became a bonafide Astronaut in November 2010.


What does the W.O.R.F. patch represent?


1. World Order Religious Friendship?

2. When NASA was designing an Earth observation facility for the ISS to make use of its optical quality window, its formal acronym became the Window Observational Research Facility 

3. Michael Dorns brand new Star Trek Worf show?


Live Long and Prosper my Trekker aeronautical friends.

STEVE SCHNIER - USS ENTERPRISE IN SPACE

Hi Trekkers Spacerguy here. Steve Schnier stopped by not too long ago who I totally believe has earned his place in Star Trek and Sci-Fi history. I figured his Enterprise capers might cheer lots of us up so enjoy the fun. 55 years on, Earth still hasn't built a real starship USS Enterprise NCC 1701 to boldly explore and chart the galactic regions of outer space, shocking isn't it?  but have I news for you... 😁



No Enterprise and its a real tragic reality, lol... except that is until now. Imagine my surprise what Steve and his wife did in 2013. Their "Enterprise" launch in Canada and filmed on youtube for posterity is magnificent! Not to be missed, we see the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 stellar ascend into the skies as the starship navigates easily soaring on her maiden flight with little turbulence thanks to Scotty in the engine room. 




 The good news is readings indicate that the ship may have reached or crossed the 100KM boundary Kármán line which is so cool.



 In hindsight I realise now "The U.S.S. Enterprise in Space" is such a sweet moment in Star Trek history and I was a tad tardy reporting this fascinating news, so I beg forgiveness readers. Picard would say it was "the burdens of command" (hangs head down in shame.) 😑but the show must go on! 😁




Star Trek is always exploring the outer limits which began aboard Captain James T Kirk's classic USS Enterprise NCC 1701 in 1966 (prequels and sequels aside) but this is for real!. Anyway, all joking aside heres what Steve said on Wednesday, May 08, 2013

 




Hello! Nice blog by the way.


My name is Steve Schnier. Just a note to let you know that my wife and I sent a model of STAR TREK’s U.S.S. Enterprise into near-space via weather balloon. The payload reached a height of 95,568’ and hit a top speed of 63 knots or 117 km/hr.



The model was launched from Stayner, Ontario (90 minutes North of Toronto) and was recovered from a remote island in Georgian Bay. It was supposed to travel South towards Toronto - but I miscalculated and it went due North. I should have paid more attention in Math Class.

LIVE LONG AND PROSPER MY TREKKER FRIENDS  - 

Enjoy the Enterprise in Space
